Drag Photo Model Gender Expression Freedom

Drag is a dazzling art form and whilst many use it as a high-profile performing and entertainment platform, others use it for self-expression, comfort and a way to make cultural statements.

From the conceptual Divine to the legendary RuPaul, drag has found a way to creep into acceptance within society on a wider scale.

LA based photographer, Kyle Jackson, tends to create work that pushes his audience to think outside traditional gender roles. His photo series, American Queen, captures the freedom of expression perfectly.
