What a fascinating project! As I was reading through, I hoped the slides would be located at the end, and they were, which really helped me picture the performances and roles. The anecdote about the journalist feeling confused about how to physically interact with de Bries is eloquent, as is his answer. I won’t spoil it for anyone, but this broadened my perspectives on the wider history of modern drag performers.
Very persuading and fresh/”powerful” talk! Thank you!
Best wishes Susanne
