DRAGGED*

Created by Anis Buttar-Miller (Editor), Cameron Bacher (Journalist), Lili Whittier (Journalist), and Sophie Dua (Graphic Designer)

“Welcome to the first edition of DRAGGED* (*dragging the complexities out of drag)! As a magazine we hope to use feminist lenses to explore the discourse (dominant discussion and narrative about a topic) around the drag community regarding identity, self-expression, and the impact on its audiences with queer young adults who are interested in drag. As young queer people we want you to be able to take pride in your identity and find strength in it like Charlotte Bunch said, ‘Our very strength as lesbians lies in the fact that we are outside the patriarchy; our existence challenges its life’ (224). We also want you to think critically about happenings within your community, such as the prevalence of and discourse around drag. We hope to be able to provide you with new information and help you understand the complexities around drag.”
Anis Buttar-Miller, Editor
