Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez - Legendary Children: The First Decade of RuPaul's Drag Race and the Last Century of Queer Life

Upcoming Event
Friday, March 13, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

With the same exacting eye and critical finesse that has made their blog, Tom and Lorenzo, a go-to site for the latest on pop culture and fashion, Fitzgerald and Marquez in their new book offer a definitive guide to RuPaul’s Drag Race. In addition to being one of the most popular shows on TV, RuPaul is a rich repository of queer history and culture that both explores and illustrates queer life in the modern age. Examining the show piece by piece, the authors demonstrate how each part—the Work Room, the Library, the Pit Crew, the runway, the Untucked lounge, the Snatch Game –reflects a specific aspect of queer cultural history and/or the work of certain legendary figures in queer cultural history.
