Rather than playful attempts to escape who we are, Drag and other forms of dressing up are ways of exploring our identities, connecting with others and embodying our stories.
Although fun, these moments of play in the spotlight can be powerful tools of personal transformation, community building and political change. Cheddar Gorgeous is a drag artist, academic and unicorn who doesn't live in London.
From founding a Manchester club night, to performing in venues ranging from bars to galleries and museums, cheddar believes that life is too short to only be one person. Before making a spectacle of theirself for a living, Cheddar liked to draw and write about other people, in Anthropology.
