Un-Tucked – Being Southern and In Drag

Our Project involves showing what it is like being a Southern Drag Queen. The goal of the photo style book is to show the struggles and triumphs of these individuals. The photographic book will illustrate Southern Drag Queen in full character. It will discuss what it was like for them to grow up and take on the role of drag in the South. This book discusses their side of how they view their role and what it took for them to get to where they are, the good and the bad.

Our hopes of writing this book, is to bring awareness and show that even though they may look glamorous on the outside, life isn’t and hasn’t always been a bed of roses.

We already have a publisher to take our book national in stores so these Queens can share a story of hope and that there is Light before and after the Stage. But, we have to get the funding so we can make this project a reality!!!

....we have a publisher, that's not the problem...it takes money to get from here to there, if I had the funds to gain all my interviews, I would have no worries..but yall, it takes gas, train tickets, lodging, not to mention the publisher is only accepting the manuscript and putting it in the stores. So I have to do the editing, dictation, reviews. then the publisher does the finals on it, i.e. making it fit the book size formats, bar codes, isbn numbers, press releases, and printing. The total we have to raise at this point is $9000, the publisher is saving us $11000.....If we do not get behind this book, it will not happen...all efforts will be null and void. We must make this book a reality. There is only so much one person can do..They say "It takes a village to raise a child"....."Un-Tucked" is metaphorically our baby, and it will take everyone to bring this book to life and put it into the hands of those who need to read it.

Our aim is to get a variety of Queens from Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee. We already have a few individuals willing to share their stories. We are hoping for at least 100 different individuals, from all walks of Southern Life, willing to become “Un-Tucked”.

Your donation will cover travel to and from each location, photography, editing, and printing. Lets make this happen and share a story of change in what could be considered one of the hardest places to come out, The South. Let’s make this photo/bio book happen where it just might be the “glamour” of hope someone needs to take a chance and become "Un-Tucked".
