Atomic Annie

Age: 21

Location: New York, New York

About:

“I’ve been doing drag for just under three years, and I first moved to New York for college where I’m currently studying fashion editorial styling at Parsons. My drag name comes from all of the women in past pop culture that I grew up idolizing. The ‘Atomic’ in my name comes from a comic called Atomic Blonde I grew up reading, about a female assassin and spy from the 80s…and the ‘Annie’ comes from none other than Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics. When I first googled Atomic Annie, just out of curiosity, it turned out that it was the nickname for a military weapon used during the 80s and I guess it just stuck.

If I had to boil it down, I’d say my drag aesthetic lives on the corner of punk and runway, with a lot of references heavily leaning on the women of the 1980s like Grace JonesDebbie HarryVivienne Westwood, and any Bond Girls of the era. For me, drag is this super cathartic aspect of my life. Doing drag has allowed me to come to terms with what feels right for me in terms of gender identity and expression, while also giving me the ability to fuse my two greatest passions: fashion and queer art. As a hairy queen, I love subverting people’s expectations of what gender can look like, and what a femme person can make you feel. I felt a lot of stigma being so hairy and so femme and flamboyant growing up… and felt like In order to really come to terms with the feelings I’d internalized growing up, drag helped me take up space as a fusion of all the things I was told I couldn’t really express simultaneously. It’s all actually pretty punk if you think about it.”
