Alright Darling? is a visual celebration of the uninhibited, unapologetic and unafraid wonderland of contemporary drag. Showcasing the world’s fiercest drag queens, along with their wild fashion – and the wit, realness, backstage antics and outrageous shade of drag culture – the book includes fresh shots of the ringleaders of this world, including:
Adore Delano, Alyssa Edwards, Courtney Act, Detox, Francois Sagat, Manila Luzon, Sharon Needles, Trixie Mattel, Willam Belli, Latrice Royale, Raja Gemini, Milk and many, many more…
All images are taken by Greg Bailey, founder and editor of Alright Darling – the zine at the centre of the recent explosion of drag.
About the Author
Greg Bailey is editor of the drag scene zine, Alright Darling.
by Graeme Aitken
The zine Alright Darling? was born in 2015 and now it has been collated into a book with a mixture of styled portraits and candid backstage moments.
It features some of the most recognisable faces of drag today including Adore Delano, Alaska Thunderfuck, Alyssa Edwards, Bob The Drag Queen, Coco Peru, Charlie Hides, Courtney Act, Detox, Manila Luzon, Shangela and Sharon Needles. There is a strong emphasis on the stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race and these stars often have half-adozen pages of images devoted to them.
However, other drag queens are also featured, even porn star Francois Sagat in drag! The zine is not well-known in Australia so this is a great opportunity to have the best images collated together in a very chunky, high-quality book.
