Sasha Velour Examines Queer Family And Community In New Artsy Drag Magazine


“Sister” is the latest issue from the “Drag Race” winner’s magazine.

Finally some creativity coming out of the crown winner.

VELOUR: The Drag Magazine (known in early stages as “VYM“) celebrates the art of drag through fine art,  poetry, and interviews! Edited and designed by Brooklyn drag legend Sasha Velour and her partner Johnny, each issue pairs drag innovators with visual artists and writers to create beautiful and thoughtful pieces about the power, beauty, and purpose of drag.

 Published twice yearly, the 100+ page, advertisement-free book is a work of art in itself. With clean and playful design, high-quality paper, offset-printed in rich full color with tactile raised type and protective spot gloss on the cover and spine—this mag is designed to decorate coffee tables, to collect on bookshelves, to be taught in classrooms, and (most importantly) to be read, discussed, and shared.

All articles for VELOUR are commissioned together with our editorial staff. If you are a writer, artist, or drag performer and love the magazine, please contact us at with examples of your work and a few article proposals.

Because it is ad-free, VELOUR receives support from donors and grants to continue releasing beautifully-printed issues.  interested in helping support VELOUR financially, we have several donation/exchange programs in place. Please contact us at
