Event Details

“Wigs, stilettos and liberation” is a historical journey through the performing art known as drag. This fabulous, colorful, flamboyant and important part of Norwegian cultural history is now documented for the very first time by author Daisy Sælen Hafstad in the book “Wigs, stilettos and liberation – The story of the Norwegian drag show”

Here you will get a unique insight into an important part of Norwegian queer history, and get the chance to read the artist’s personal stories, admire the wildest creations, and enjoy the colorful images of this art form that dates back to the end of the 19th century and up to today’s drag queens. For the past three years, author Daisy Sælen Hafstad searched the whole country for all its drag-historical treasures. What she found along the way were not only stilettos and shimmering sequin dresses, but also testimonies of a liberation struggle that many today take for granted. In June Daisy visits Bergen Pride to share the stories she encountered along the way.
