I worked as a bartender during my college years in the cabaret of one of the premier gay clubs in the south. Around this time I took my first Photography class and began photographing these amazing people. This body of work is a retrospective of just over ten years of working with this unique and beautiful group of entertainers. I was welcomed into their world and many times felt that I had been adopted by a wondrously dysfunctional family. I learned a lot about their lives and lifestyle plus some killer make-up tips…in turn I like to think I taught them a few things as well. Many times throughout the years I felt a little like Alice in the Looking Glass. Everything seemed as one would expect…but when you looked a little closer…things were just a little bit different.
