To celebrate NYC’s return, Latinx transgender drag artist Chiquitita orchestrated a photo shoot with over 80 Brooklyn-based performers.
Chiquitita told The Cut,
“After a year of being apart, I wanted to find a fun and safe way to reunite.
Photographer Fred Attenborough and I spent weeks conceptualizing a way to showcase everyone’s individuality, and I gave everyone freedom to come up with their own cut-outs, so everyone’s image is truly unique to them.”
The print is now on sale for $60 to benefit For the Gworls, a collective that fundraises money to help Black transgender people pay for their rent, gender-affirming surgeries, medical co-pays, and travel.
Each performer was asked,
“What are you most looking forward to in nightlife post-pandemic?”
Check out all the sickening individual shots and answers on The Cut here.
“I’m so excited to be able to return to live performances. I mostly sing live at my shows, and I’ve missed belting at the top of my lungs without worrying that my neighbors hate me.” — Virgil III, Drag Queen
