Local drag queen Nikki Fenmore and drag kings, Windz and Miles Long, visit SU to discuss "The Art of Drag."

Her golden-blonde hair rests on the collar of her black sweater, and her soft side bangs brush the thin, silver frame of her glasses. She smiles. Her lips are full and painted a deep, dusty-rose shade of pink. She sits, hands folded together with a shiny gold band on each ring finger, waiting for the others to arrive.

This self-taught makeup maven plays with bright colors, hoping for a bright future.

She wears her pale skin bare on this rainy afternoon after class. Cotton-candy pink streaks run through her white-blonde hair.  Earrings dangle from the gages that form sizable holes in each of her ears: one a machine-gun, the other, a revolver. Her four facial piercings add enough sparkle to evoke her alter ego: Miss Marie Massacre, a sort of gothic pin-up girl who covers herself in her creativeness.
