Drag, Masks, Roles, Costumes


Part of the gay subculture, Drag and Camp have a long history. In the wider culture, we find a similarly long history involving carnival, clowns, fools, theater performances, masked balls, and the like. On a more mundane level, we all have various roles to play in the world, and find ourselves donning various costumes / uniforms and masks. To what extent is this reasonable and to what extent is it extra or problematic?
