The life of a queen


By Adam Kiefer



Argenta Perón takes viewers behind the scenes and into the world of Drag in Bloomington, IN. Much more than sequins, dresses, makeup and lip-syncing, for Perón, Drag is an art form.

The art of Drag came to prominence the 1970s and '80s, and has long existed within the colorful shadows of Queer culture. RuPaul's Drag Race has helped to change that. The reality show, first broadcast on the Logo network and now on VH1, has amassed a large audience and has brought Drag into the mainstream.

RuPaul's Drag Race, however, only portrays part of the art form. Follow Perón as she shows you what life is like as a queen in southern Indiana.
