MAC Cosmetics UK: History of Drag

To celebrate this year’s LGBT+ History month, M·A·C Cosmetics set out to explore the history of Drag and spotlight how M·A·C VIVA GLAM has supported the community over the years. The campaign features six drag performers, each embodying a different expression of the artform, telling their self-discovery stories from the past and present and their interpretations of the meaning of Drag, to demonstrate the evolution and fluidity of self-expression that M·A·C is so much a part of.
