On March 23rd, Portland's beloved Darcelle XV, the world's oldest working drag performer, died at 92 years of age. Darcelle was an activist, author, playwright, actor, costume designer, and owner and headliner of the Darcelle XV Showplace. Jan Haaken pays tribute to Darcelle who she got to know twenty years ago when she directed "Queens of Heart: Community Therapists in Drag"--a film about Darcelle and the social psychology of drag performance. The documentary can be streamed at https://www.jhaaken.com/queens-of-heart-documentary.
