Drag Story Hour with Maiden China and Skim

Drag performers Maiden China and Skim

[Image description: Two people pose against a black background. On the left, Maiden China, an intersectional non-binary feminist drag performer, adorns a lustrous black patterned top with cut out shoulders. Back-lit by a yellow light, their shoulder-length dark hair flows as if in the wind. Their face is covered in white luminous foundation, their cheeks and forehead are contoured with blue and highlighted with fuchsia, and their lips a matching pink shade. Wearing red eye contacts with matching eye shadow, and large lashes, they stare into the camera. On the right, Skim, an emotional, unhinged being and drag performer, wears a black lace corset with loose and sweeping bright red sleeves. Their arms fold in front of their torso, hands posed to frame their face. Their left fingers have long red nails that barely touch their right hand—whose splayed fingers are covered with black nail gloves. Their face is contoured with magenta, and the colour extends up into their eyeshadow. A painted black whisker-like goatee frames their grape coloured lips. Their black hair is loosely bundled atop their head, and silver curtain earrings dangle from their lobes. They stare into the camera. End Image Description.]
