The Complete Story

Simon Doonan


Coming soon

Drag is transformation, communication, and, above all, exaggeration where gender non-conformity is the plat du jour. This fearless book observes this increasingly complex world by exploring drag’s journey – from the surprising, to the sophisticated, to the utterly bizarre – through the twentieth century and up to the present day.

From Glamour Drag to Comedy Drag, Art Drag to Butch Drag, corralled into thematic chapters, author Simon Doonan shines an international spotlight on the most influential gender-bending supernovas of all time.

With witty text, dazzling photography and camp humour, this is the first flamboyant and poignant survey of drag culture. Drag is not just for fabulous queens and drag enthusiasts, but for anyone interested in gender fluidity and the culture surrounding it.

Writer, Fashionista and Author Simon Doonan is the Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York. His books include Saturday Night Fever Pitch,  Eccentric Glamour and Gay Men Don’t Get Fat. Simon is appearing as a judge on the NBC television show, Making It, co-hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.
