More than just a drag queen
Short feature on a 21-year-old student who works as a drag queen.
Matthew Perry works as a host in a nightclub, where he dresses as a drag queen named Tequila Addams. His drag persona is very unique as he paints eccentric designs on his face rather than just a traditional drag queen make up. He taught himself to make these amazing facial art looks.
Nowadays, we see a lot of drag queen performers on mainstream media, but we do not see the hard working side of a drag queen trying to break into the industry. Matthew stands out because he juggles his life between his fashion management studies at the University of the Arts London and his nightlife work as Tequila Addams.

Important lessons my arts degree taught me that my grades won't tell you
Graduation is 6 months and many deadlines away. It cannot come round soon enough but at the same time is whizzing towards me at an uncomfortably rapid speed.

Creativity Takes Confidence
Art is all about opinion. There is no right or wrong answer. But because of this, we as artists invest so much of ourselves into our work and to show that to the world can make you feel exposed and vulnerable. It's often hard to trust your opinion, that what you're creating is of a high quality, and it takes guts to share that work with others.
