!! OMG, you're not in Kansas anymore: Artist Robert Heishman's chance discovery gives us a glimpse into the Kansas drag scene of the 1960's !!


Artist Robert Heishman was rummaging through a junk yard while looking for material for an undergraduate documentary class, when he came across an old slide carousel labeled "Jack's Slides: Chicago and Kansas City." To his surprise, the carousel burst open, unicorns and butterflies flew out, and it was chalked full of dragalicious photos from 1960's Kansas City!

Later, while helping a friend move into a house around the corner from a bunch of old drag clubs in Kansas city, they came across a shoebox in the house with a similar bunch of old photos that appeared to be by the same dude!

NYMagazine has a great interview with Robert regarding his glamorous discovery over here, but you can have a look at the full set of photos right here, after the jump!

[[OMG there's more! JUMP IN and read the rest]]

!! OMG, help a sister out: Filmmaker Basil Shadid needs your assistance in completing his Jinkx Monssoon documentary 'Drag Becomes Him' !!


I've always liked Jinkx Monsoon. I saw her perform once, and not only could she really sing -- like REALLY sing -- but she was funny, and had picked a genre and style of music that was pretty ballsy (no pun-intended) considering the crowd she was out there facing. (Let's just say she wasn't doing any circuit house tracks.)

It didn't matter though, the crowd loved it, and she radiated with good vibes the whole time. Well, documentary filmmaker Basil Shadid sees that too, in Jinkx. He's been documenting her every move, since long before her days on RuPaul's Drag Race, since before winning 'America's Next Drag Superstar'.

Now, Jinkx and Basil are looking for help in crowd-funding the remainder of his documentary 'Drag Becomes Him', which is nearing completion! Check out the trailer below, and click HERE to help out.

(Their project will only be funded if at least $20,000 is pledged by Thursday, Mar 13 2014 11:02 AM EST, so go check one of your 20 different jackets and see if you can find some loose change already!)

!! OMG, the blushing ham: Presenting Miss Piggy's Vivienne Westwood wedding dress !!

Screen Shot 2014-02-12 at 9.42.47 AM.png

Make it bacon! It looks as if Missy Piggy has hired designer Vivienne Westwood to design her wedding dress!

No, Kermet hasn't proposed yet, but like most marriage-obsessed pigs, Miss Piggy is jumping the gun and making all the preparations ahead of time! According to Vogue:

The ivory-coloured couture gown - which features in new film Muppets Most Wanted - is decorated in paillettes made using recycled plastic bottles, and is accessorized with a tulle veil.

"Vivienne Westwood is fabulous-just like moi," said Miss Piggy. "When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi's new movie, Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit 'iffy' about it was the Frog."

This isn't Miss Piggy's first time collaborating with a fashion label. Previously she's been the face of MAC, Tommy Hilfiger and OPI. Total brand whore!

!! OMG, dat chew Camilla?: Transvestite Artist Grayson Perry honoured by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace !!


"The idea that rebellion is at the margins of society - that's false, it's far more interesting to be mischievous from the centre." - Grayson Perry

Turner Prize-winning artist, Grayson Perry, known for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing (those two always go hand-in-hand), was honoured by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace this past week for "30 years of hard graft" (that means 30 years of hard work in British speak, y'all!).

Perry worked a very Camilla Parker Bowles-esque look in a midnight blue dress and matching fitted jacket with a wide brimmed black-hat with some ostrich feathers for flare! Perry himself called the outfit very "Italian mother-of-the-bride".
