Barb Talkzzzzzz

For my final project, I wanted to use a video that I made for the drag show, featuring Marshall Cuffe as Barb and me as Pam.

The video is a mockumentary style short focused on Barb, a member of a small Midwestern church.  Oh, and we're both drag queens in our roles as church members.  The video is a tongue in cheek personification of what a typical religious midwestern person might be like.  It touches on social transparency, in that we did this video to open and create dialogue in areas where people tend to be hush-hush, especially where it concerns religion and gender norms, sexuality, etc.  This video is not intended to be offensive at all, because the that work that drag queens do is always out of love.  And lots of fake lash glue and lip gloss.

I'm still on the fence as to whether I should put up the video, mainly because we went to the church in the middle of the night and filmed it without anyone's permission, so we'd like to stay out of trouble.  However, I am considering uploading the video privately so that Julie may watch it.  I will post an update as soon as I make my decision... and find my fake lashes.

Thanks to everyone for a great year :)
