Parallel Lives

By day, Will spends his time deep in research as a lab manager at Northwestern University of Evanston, IL. Openly gay, he makes a complete transformation into a drag queen a few times each week. While in drag, Will goes by the name Arianna.The process of transformation is surely the work of artists. It can take up to five hours each performance night and requires meticulous makeup application, full-body hair removal, clothing adjustments, and prostheses to mimic a woman’s form.
