When I lived in Oregon, one of my favorite events was going to see a Sissyboy performance: a troupe of drag queens and gender benders who really took the culture of shame to task and messed with gender and social norms on stage. It was one of the most entertaining and queer events I’ve ever been to. They group has since disbanded, but there’s a documentary about Sissyboy now, and it’s already premiered at various places. I’ll have to try to see it someday.
