From camp to fashion, from personal narrative to queer politics - the art of drag is rich and diverse and deserves to be celebrated. In the inaugural issue of VYM, we asked over 20 of the most talented independent artists, performers, and writers working today to define the indefinable: "What is Drag?" Their answers are as varied and valid as the art itself and their work reminds us that their is no "right way" to do, or to even define drag. VYM seeks to celebrate it all.
