I am Ivan (most of the time) (full length version) features Ivan Perez of Washington Heights: counselor by day, drag queen at night.
This longer version explores the transformation of Ivan and includes a lengthier interview with Ivan/Madison Banks, who talks about what it feels like to perform in drag and the challenges of dressing up as a woman in performance. This version also includes dynamic footage of Ivan in performance.
Performance footage shot at Mamajuana Dyckman in New York City as part of TGIM Happy Hour on Monday events.
