I saw a poster a few days ago and heard from a friend that there was going to be some "Bearded Lady Fortune Teller" at Bromley Dining Hall tonight. Well, it turned out to be a little more than that.
First of all, the bearded lady was a sham. He was some clown from my high school, he was drunk, and his crystal ball was a piece of junk. But...all was not lost. There was a drag show...
(In case you are not sure, all of these photos are guys, dressed like women).
I smell a long term documentary/essay of sorts on these folks. I don't understand why they do it at all. I didn't really talk to them much, just got their fake names and where they were from. One was from Dayton. It's a weird sort of subculture....and it is certainly photogenic.
Funny side story to this is that this "Modern Carnival 2008" was put on by a student group called "Open Doors." I googled it and it said it was some Christian outreach campus group. I was very confused when I showed up.
