This brief essay responds to the essay Making Up Is Hard to Do: Race/Gender/Sexual Orientation in the Law School Classroom by Adrienne Davis and Robert Chang. I explore experiences of discomfort and even harassment through theoretical and sociological explorations of identity as well as cultural texts such as Paris is Burning. Thinking about drag fuels an understanding of the meaning of professorial realness.
Keywords: legal pedagogy, teaching, gender, sex, sexuality, drag, race, identity
