If you are even slightly clued-in on drag culture, you’re probably already familiar with one of the best visual documentarians of the scene, Magnus Hastings. The British photographer’s work has been featured in GQ, People Magazine, Glamour Magazine (UK) and the Sunday Times…and pretty much on every drag fan T-shirt you can find. In 2016, he published the book Why Drag?– featuring photographs of a diverse selection of drag artists from across the United States, including TONS of your fave RuPaul’s Drag Race alumnae.
Now he’s about to have his first, full exhibition in Los Angeles, benefitting the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Sunday, July 16th, at the Musichead Gallery…featuring images from Why Drag? ladies, including Sasha Velour, Adore Delano, Bianca Del Rio, Courtney Act, Violet Chachki, Katya Zamolodchikova, and some new and previously unseen pics. PLUS, one of his muses, the reigning queen of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 2, Alaska Thunderfuck will be performing…along with past RPDR girl Willam Belli and the super cool Misty Violet.
