In this lecture. Dr. Michael Bibler (English ~ LSU) will discuss  RuPaul’s early career and her creation of the personas Starrbooty and Miss Rachel Tensions, who both inhabited spaces that took white constructions of black respectability literally. He will also discuss early controversy about whether Ru’s drag was “black enough” to contemporary controversies about trans identity.
