I can't believe it's taken this long for Drag Kings to be seen and heard, but THE DRAG KING BOOK more than makes up for the wait. I had never heard of drag kings before I literally ran into this book and my eyes have been wide open ever since. As a novice in this field I found the book to be a very enjoyable read and the photographs pure pleasure. I had no idea that women could so convincingly impersonate such a wide range of men, and more than a few are stunningly sexy, even to a confirmed heterosexual woman such as myself. When are they coming to Texas?

I bought this book after watching some amazing drag kings on The Maury Show--an experience which really knocked me out! Shows what an absolute obsession we all have with gender and our quest to find some kind of "truth" therein.I'm only half way through the book but just had to tell the world how extraordinary this new(?) subculture is. I loved the images and loved reading the interviews especially. You Go Boys & Girls!

I found this book very informative and the pictures are awesome. It is a good look at the lives and lifestyles of Drag Kings. Some of the ladies look so much like men and have been photographed so well one would never believe what really lies under their shirts.:-)
