Israeli photographer Baz Ratner, who works for the Reuters news agency, undertook a new project during Gay Pride Month last June, focusing on drag artists from Israel along with their families.
What began as an effort to photograph drag queens with their mothers developed into a broader project incorporating other family members.
Among the project's participants are well-known drag queens such as Suzi Boum, Nona Chalant, Shewanna B. Black, Lolly Pott and Hilba Bat Saluf, alongside queens taking their first steps in this artistic genre, including Emily Rose, Donna Marrona and Angelina Hiary.
The Israeli drag scene is very established and considered one of the most varied in the world. In keeping with this, Tel Aviv has one of the only schools in the world where the art can be studied.
