How the Boulet Brothers, Venus Envy and more are breaking the boundaries of drag
Smeared lipstick, vivaciously spiked hair, large pleather boots — drag and alternative culture are not so dissimilar, the two having danced hand in hand over the decades, basking in one another’s great glory.

THE BLSSM manipulated genre and emotion to create their ‘PURE ENERGY’ EP
