GAG drag fashion alert: for the futuristic drag lover in all of us.

Here at GAG we love our fashion as much as we love our drag. We also love technology (almost) as much.

But fashion and technology together = a #GAGworthy fashion moment.

Designer Behnaz Farahi has created such a vision with her new innovative design, a 3D wearable cape she’s calling Caress of the Gaze.  Built into the cape is a camera that can sense when someone is looking at it. That’s when the magic happens. After sensing the gaze, the fibers on the garment begin to move in a beautiful wave ripple effect. And the result is beyond sickening.

Check out the video below.

We are in GAG drag heaven!

It’s the kind of wearable art that we love – innovative, one-of-a-kind, avant. It’s a statement piece for a statement queen or king.

Alexander McQueen – Drag’s Couture Queen

Alexander McQueen

If Evolution gave us a visual glimpse into the mind of this century’s creative genius, Wilson’s unauthorized biography will likely navigate the mental terrain via the stories behind the art – and the man.

Regardless, a peak into the creative world and process of this master couturier is sure to spark ANY dragsters imagination to reach beyond the drag mundane.

We are, after all, walking pieces of art – why not walk in the most sickening, haute versions of our drag selves?

i have a feeling this book will inspire us to go there.

Review forthcoming.

The Art of GAG – A Retrospective

GAGmagazine_August_2015_Final20

GAG – or a version of it – has been a dream of mine since the early 90s.

It was 1996 and i was just getting started in the drag scene. i was making videos and screening them on our local PBS station, making mini documentaries, and dreaming of owning my own newspaper called The Voice.

Flash forward to 2006, i moved to a city whose LGBTQ newspaper was called Dallas Voice – sign #1 i knew i was home.

In August 2013, this long time dream was made a reality.
