Manly Stanley Takes New York


Shelby Coley

USA, 6 mins

London-born drag king Edythe Woolley – a.k.a. Manly Stanley – walks us through her cabaret performance set, which utilises misogynistic images from old Hollywood films, footage from “designer vagina” surgery documentaries, and genuine online vagina contests to offer a queer, feminist take on drag performance.
