Join Sasha Velour, international drag superstar and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9, for the release of her hardcover art book, Velour: The Drag Magazine [Collector’s Edition] with a discussion at the LGBT Community Center on Sunday, November 18th at 6PM followed by a signing.
Sasha Velour will be joined by Velour editor and panel moderator, Johnny Velour for an exclusive discussion with long-time Velour: The Drag Magazine collaborators: Miss Malice, Pearl Harbor, Ohni Lisle, and Lady Quesa’Dilla. A signing with Sasha Velour will take place following the panel at The Bureau of General Services Queer Division bookstore—just upstairs!
The panel discussion is a free event with registration. Books will be on sale at BGSQD following the panel and the signing is free and open to the public.
At 296 pages, entirely ad-free, Velour: The Drag Magazine [Collector’s Edition] compiles all three volumes of Sasha’s critically-acclaimed magazine, Velour (House of Velour, 2015-2017). It is designed from cover to cover by Velour herself, in her unique signature style, and features illustrations, collages, fashion editorials, poems, interviews, and essays by over 75 queer artists and drag performers from around the world. Since its inception, the magazine has been dedicated to showcasing the work of drag queens and drag kings, queer, trans, AFAB (assigned female at birth), and non-binary drag artists from all backgrounds.
The pieces collected in this coffee table book are as varied and valid as the drag artists they depict. “There is ‘no right way’ to do, or even define drag,” Sasha Velour insists, “We seek to celebrate it all.”
