My name's yours, what's Alaska? : a memoir

Thunderfuck, Alaska 1985- (author.). Flannery, Thomas, Jr., (contributor.). Beat, Jackie, (writer of foreword.).


Summary: "Before RuPaul's Drag Race became a worldwide phenomenon, Drag was mostly an underground art form, performed by the daring and the quick-witted with maximum energy and a minimal budget. This is the story of one of the galaxy's greatest queens, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, as she transforms from wearing dresses made of trash bags because she has to, to wearing dresses made of trash bags because she wants to. A dishy and intimate memoir told with poise and humor that recounts Alaska's meteoric rise to fame-from childhood makeovers of Mighty Mouse to chart topping hits, from prom king to the House of the Haunt-Alaska reveals the stories that shaped her into an All Star, including the full story behind the very public breakup that almost destroyed her. With exclusive photography and original art throughout, this raw and compelling behind-the-scenes and before-Drag-Race account is a wild ride from start to finish"--
