Not a drag - just a prince

INTRO POST ACTIVATE.

My name is Ronen and I live in Chicago. Onstage I'm known as Marc LeMarque, and I've performed a few times with the new-ish Chicago drag troupe Gender Bent. The group is composed mostly of kings, but really it's a mélange.

(Byyyyy the way, we have a show Saturday night, if you're in the area.)

My drag persona is... a little different from most of what I've seen others do so far. I started out trying to be a standard king, but after a few performances another performer remarked that the way I presented myself onstage came off very androgynous. So I figured, instead of trying to change my direction - what the heck, go with what comes natural.

So now I'm a hot-pants-wearing, eyeliner-sporting, confetti-throwing femme-king - or, to adopt a phrase I found on genderform, a "drag prince." I still pack and bind, but that won't preclude me from strapping on a pair of red heels and swooshing on some glittery eyeshadow for an act. Or performing an Adam Lambert routine. I still do some standard-ish stuff, but I find the femme comes more naturally to me.

Any other princes out there?

Gender research
genderthesis
Hi all - I am doing a thesis project in which I will interview people who identify as transgender or other gender variations and I am trying to find people that might be willing to help. I posted here previously so this is just a final reminder and attempt to find anyone that might still want to participate. If you think you might be interested, or know someone who might be interested, please check out my LJ for details.

You must be at least 18 years old and live in the United States.

Thanks for considering it!

Transgender research
genderthesis
Hi everyone - I am doing my thesis project on transgender individuals and their experiences, and I was wondering if anyone here might be interested in participating? Obviously just because someone is a drag king doesn't mean they are transgender, but I thought I might find some people who identify as transgender here. Please check out my LJ for details if you are interested. Thanks for considering it!

Participate?: Survey for my fellow drag kings - pass along!
dkingsproject
Hi there,

I am conducting a research study called “The D-KINGS Project,” to look at how drag kings experience their performances and daily challenges with other people’s perceptions of their sexuality and gender presentation.

I am looking for participants who meet the following criteria:
1) Were assigned the gender of female at birth
2) Are at least 18 years old
3) Have performed masculinity in front of an audience at least once in their lifetime.

Please pass along to anyone who you think may qualify!

To get more info and to participate, go to -

This is a survey which, should you choose to participate, will take about 25 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you will have the option of providing your email address to be entered into a lottery for $50!

This study has been approved by my Institutional Review Board: #10-01-003-0135

Thank you for your time and support!

Hey There!
 
    This is Drake Blackstone from Worcester MA. My friend Raven Kaldera, F-M/ Intersex activist & author is nearly done writing a new book on the subject of TV/CD/King/Queen identified people and their sexuality. He wants to include photos of Drag Kings in the book (photo credits & promotional  ops !), but up till now, he has been short on King related resources. If you are interested, feel free to send me a message ASAP.

 If you would like to e-mail Raven for more details about the book, please feel free to e-mail him at cauldronfarm@hotmail.com .

Thanks,
Drake Blackstone

A petition to remove cross-dressing as a mental disorder is being submitted to the Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders Workgroup of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). Currently the APA considers individuals who crossdress to be suffering from "transvestic disorder"
