Photo Essay: Austin's Underground Drag Scene
At the heart of Scott Fuller's murder lie questions of identity. An effeminate young man, he was constantly harassed at school (including having been stuffed into a locker), causing him to leave at age 16. Fuller left his family at 17, feeling that his emergent lifestyle didn't fit in at home. After finding himself on the street, Fuller began a search for himself that led to experiments with cross-dressing and performing drag.
