GenderVision: The Politics of Drag: Drag Queens & Theatre
 

Nancy & Gordene dress up in style for GenderVision's "Politics of Drag: Drag Queens & Theatre." They're joined by Abe Rybeck, artistic director of Boston's Theatre Offensive, for a wide-ranging discussion of the politics of drag, from personal stories to political demonstrations to the founding of the Theatre Offensive. In part 1, Abe trades stories with Nancy and Gordene, revealing his backwoods roots and how he got started in drag performance. In part 2, Abe is joined by The Theatre Offensive's community engagement and street theatre director Eugene Tan, as they delve deeper into the politics of drag performance. Eugene lends his unusual perspective as a drag performer under the name (among others) of "Becca D'Bus".

Also included is a new transgender civil rights advocacy video produced by GLAD (Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders) in a collaboration among leading activist organizations in Boston. Titled "Everyone Matters," the 10-minute piece makes the case for non-discrimination protections for transgender persons, and is well suited to group presentations.
