“We are all born naked, the rest is just drag” -Rupaul
Gender is a performance, an act that is perpetuated and maintained by societal norms and expectations, but how, and to what extent does it define us? This reading seeks to push and transcend the definition of gender while also exploring its relation to individual character amongst collective expectations.
