Lights. Glamour. Action! Take a peek into the cultural phenomenon that is Drag, in this lusciously illustrated guide to the history of the phenomenon, from ancient theatre to the queens of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Drag has been around for thousands of years. A fabulous mix of fashion, theatre, gender and politics all come together to create the show-stopping entertainment millions love today.

In this comprehensive work, Jake Hall delves into its ancient beginnings, to the present day and beyond.

Vibrant illustrations enhance a rich history that ranges from Kabuki theatre to Shakespeare, and the revolutionary Stonewall riots to the still-thriving New York ballroom scene.

This is a must-have guide to the wonderful world of Drag.
