NIGHTWOOD: A Drag King Performance is named after the legendary Djuna Barnes novel, Nightwood, a whimsical, gothic lesbian narrative from 1936, and serves as a double entendre for an evening with DRAG KINGS. As a means to stimulate pride in lesbian history and a dying out performance art, Nightwood brings in members of the lesbian and queer community to perform, reclaim masculinity, and engage with our peers.
