The lastest Vagina Nomics issue is on the topics of gender roles, stereotypes and performativity. I spoke to Fernando Aquino, a trans man who performs as the drag queen, Pamella Sapphic, about his experiences and views on the drag world and its contributions to the rupture of gender stereotypes. This conversation then went to the article “Becoming Pamella”, that also has a visual essay that gives an insight into his transformation.
