    I was eighteen and felt like I was a [drag] queen too...they became my whole world. Part of my worship of them involved photographing them. I wanted to pay homage, to show them how beautiful they were. I never saw them as men dressing up as women, but as something entirely different--a third gender that made more sense than either of the other two. I accepted them as they saw themselves; I had no desire to unmask them with my camera.
