American (b. 1957)

Beau and Tracy Monroe I, 2020
Collage printed with dye sublimation on aluminum

Number 1 in an edition of 3. From the book and series, REWIND: MEMORIES ON REPEAT.

Here, McCall poses as his drag queen persona, Jeanie Holiday, alongside his friend Tracy Monroe. McCall and several of his friends bonded through drag as they explored their gender-nonconforming identities and the creative freedom of transforming into drag queens. Drag also provided them with an outlet to challenge societal restrictions around gender and sexuality and served as a vehicle to become their own “divas,” worthy of love and praise.
