Exhibit Showcases Drag Queens

vpr.net – Jane Lindholm

An exhibit currently on display at the Folklife Center in Middlebury brings to life a scene few of us get to see: the transformation of male performers into larger than life drag queens. Westminster West photographer Evie Lovett spent a couple of years taking photographs at a now defunct gay bar in Dummerston that had a popular monthly drag show. The resulting photographs and accompanying audio profiles of the performers have become the show “Backstage at the Rainbow Cattle Co.”
