I’ve never really been that interested in my genealogy, but one of my cousins reminded me lately that my great-grandfather on my father’s side was an Irish immigrant. He came to this country via Canada and never got his American citizenship. I’m a descendent of an illegal immigrant.

Happy St. Pat’s Day!

 

At last week’s NADA New York art fair, photographer Lucas Michael took polaroids of me and other lovely participants in the “Contemporary Drag” program, curated by Gordon Robichaux (artists Sam Gordon and Jacob Robichaux).

You can see all the photos at New York Magazine’s website, make sure to check it out!

 

Bring back Polaroids!

 

Lucas’ series is an ode to Warhol’s “Ladies and Gentlemen” series from 1975, featuring his polaroids of drag queens and trans women.

 

 

So I guess I’m kind of a modern Warhol superstar… right?  Well at least a Polaroid princess!
