HalloQUEEN 3: Season of the Bitch with Annie Bellym
Just like Jekyll and Hyde, the dramatic transformation through the art of DRAG has captured the imaginations of so many people from the beginning of time. Drag itself has taken on many different forms throughout the ages but ultimately it is always an otherness , a separation of the self. . . and a well of steaming hot TEA! In today's episode I sat down with my friend Wesley (Miss Annie Bellym) to talk about her drag, southern drag in general, and how drag could make people better!
