Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin present their newest multi-channel video installation, featuring overtly political drag performances created in collaboration with drag queens from Oklahoma. Celebrating the historical role of drag in the struggle for LGBTQ+ progress, Political Gestures incorporates speeches from the 1979 March on Washington For Gay and Lesbian Rights, radically political queer music, and interviews with contemporary members of Oklahoma’s LGBTQ+ community. Political Gestures was commissioned by Aurora Picture Show, and funded in part by the Mid-America Arts Alliance.
