    1. life as the reigning queen of Rupaul's Drag Race

      Certainly, it would be interesting to discuss how normative male domination doesn't leave place for posthuman drags deemed by society as "otherness". Otherness would not be the right term to convince the multiple identities embodied by drags. I think you can challenge the relationality between multiple others in so may ways (inanimate objects, cyborgs...), because posthuman drags' life are diverse (multiple characters). There is even maybe some self-styling notion.

      Maybe, you can also introduce some limitations of the posthuman drags boundaries.

Since the incumbent did not receive a wage or sully his hands with works per se, it was considered a gentlemanly profession and many younger sons of gentlemen pursued the church as their career."
