     This is my attempt at organizing all the information I can find on recordings by drag artists and female impersonators. The data is listed alphabetically by artist, and each entry will contain a link to a page, or pages, of additional info...more photos and larger scans of the albums and CDs. It will definitely be a work in progress, and will grow continually. And if you know of a drag artist who has released a recording who is not listed, or an additional recording by someone who is already here, please let me know. You can browse through the pages, or just click on the heading to go to that particular page. And, a note, this focuses especially on the earlier artists....with the digital age it's become increasingly impossible to keep track of every perform (ie, on RuPaul's Drag Race) who releases a video or track.

"Drag" versus "Trans" or "Gender Bender"?

Some may ask how I decide who to include in this discography, as the drag/trans/gender bender distinction can get quite blurry. And, where's Jayne County? She's certainly an icon, but I've decided (and she agrees) that's she's a transgender artist, and I covered TG artists in my early December QMH. And the Glam acts like the New York Dolls, David Bowie, Pete Burns, etc, etc..well, that's a different image altogether, as is Boy George. I love the "Rocky Horror" and "Hedwig" soundtracks, but again, a different thing. Yes, there are grey areas.
