The Diary of a Drag Queen

Crystal Rasmussen

Overview

The offstage life of a drag queen is seldom showcased, with the public only holding a perception of drag based on what is seen during their performances. Apart from the glamor and nightlife, being a drag queen entails significantly more unique experiences – both those to be celebrated and adversarial moments.

In Diary of a Drag Queen, Crystal Rasmussen - known as Tom when not in drag - details her experiences over the duration of a year, demonstrating what the life of a drag queen is truly like.

Brought up by a working class family in Lancaster, England, Rasmussen was bullied by her peers. During her early life, Rasmussen developed her drag persona which empowers her to navigate her everyday life with freedom and power. This autobiography charts her adventures over the course of a year - from her inner struggles to her frequent escapades - highlighting all aspects of the queer experience.
