The Art of Drag

  Drag performance has a rich history and a lively culture that is increasingly more mainstream. Drag queen Vivica C. Coxx has performed in drag shows for more than a decade, regularly hosting events at The Pinhook in Durham.

What is drag? What ISN'T drag? -Vivica C. Coxx

Host Frank Stasio talks with Coxx and Joanne Abel, Adult and Humanities Program Coordinator at the Durham County Library.
