First Time in Drag: A Straight Male Experience

Connor Grannis, a first year psychology major, tries drag for his very first time. Although he is a cis-gendered heterosexual male, that does not stop him from breaking gender norms through the art of drag.

“My face is so heavy, I feel like I can’t see.”

Never having put on makeup before, let alone drag, Grannis was not too fond of the “heavy and cake-y feeling” that the cosmetics gave him. With full coverage products like MAC foundation and the James Charles Morphe palette, it can be uncomfortable for anyone.

“It was an experience and I am glad that I did it, but I’m going to say this: never again.”

Drag can be therapeutic for some, and for others it can simply be something that doesn’t interest them, and that is okay because in the end it is about expression no matter what form.
