One of the key pioneers of “drag king” performance, Torr has been celebrated internationally for her gender transformation workshops, in which she has taught hundreds of ordinary women how to pass as men on city streets around the world. This cultural subterfuge appeals to participants for many different reasons: personal confidence-building, sexual frisson, gender subversion, trans-curiosity, or simply the appeal of disguise and role play. Sponsored by Stanford’s Program in Feminist Studies, The Clayman Institute for Gender Research, Queer Awareness Days (QuAD), The LGBT-CRC, and The Program in Writing and Rhetoric.NEW BOOK, Sex, Drag, and Male Roles: Investigating Gender as Performance, AVAILABLE FOR SALE!!!
