Drag Queens at the 801 Cabaret
Rupp and Verta Taylor take us on an entertaining tour through one of America’s most overlooked subcultures: They offer a penetrating glimpse into the lives of the Girls, the troupe of queens who perform nightly at the Cabaret for tourists and locals. Weaving together their fascinating life stories, their lavish costumes and eclectic music, their flamboyance and bitchiness, and their bawdy exchanges with one another and their audiences, the authors explore how drag queens smash the boundaries between gay and straight, man and woman, to make people think more deeply and realistically about sex and gender in America today.
They also consider how the queens create a space that encourages camaraderie and acceptance among csbaret people, no matter what their sexual preferences might be. Based on countless interviews with more than a dozen drag queens, more than three years of attendance at their outrageous performances, and even the authors’ participation in the shows themselves, Quefns Queens at the Cabaret is a witty and poignant portrait of gay life and culture.
When they said life is a cabaret, they clearly meant the Hardcoverpages.
