“Someone once told me that drag queens are the superheroes of the community, and I could not agree more. Whether it was at Stonewall when our revolution began, or when they strapped on face shields or performed virtually during Covid, drag performers have, in one way or the other, stood at the front of every single one of the communities most pivotal and sometimes challenging, moments. Every time I have the privilege of showcasing them in print, I am paying tribute to these dynamic and necessary superstars of our community.”, said Cook
