Art: Love Is a Drag at CS13

This Saturday night, CS13 hosts "Love Is A Drag," which will include a variety of drag performances that reinterpret the music (and gender image) of contemporary Pop icons like Pink and Beyoncé, as well as older ones like Billie Holliday. 8 p.m.

The questions of what “gender” means and what it implies beg to be continually discussed and redefined. Muddled understandings of gender lace our day-to-day life with inequities and problems that are taken for granted. What better way to open up the dialogue further than to present a conceptual performance-art show that looks to glamorous alternative-goddesses from the world of drag as models? This Saturday night, CS13 hosts "Love Is A Drag," which will include a variety of drag performances that reinterpret the music (and gender image) of contemporary Pop icons like Pink and Beyoncé, as well as older ones like Billie Holliday. Those are expected to be the most conventional of the acts; others will invoke Buckminster Fuller, strap-ons and androgyny. These performers are mostly amateurs, exploring what drag and flexible gender identities can look like. The event starts at 8 p.m. Saturday.
