Political Gestures is a multi-channel video installation featuring overtly political drag performances created in collaboration with drag queens from Oklahoma. Celebrating the historical and underappreciated 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 the LGBTQ+ Oklahoma community.
