BeBe Zahara Benet, the original RuPaul's Drag Race Superstar, is celebrating her 20th year in drag. There is also the release of her documentary Being BeBe, directed by Emily Branham, that is showing in film festivals across the country, and around the world. Terry is celebrating the anniversary by sharing some of his archive photos the two created together.
BeBe was photographer Terry Hasting’s original muse. In 2003, Bebe walked into Terry’s fashion boutique in Minneapolis and had a gown created to be on stage with Cyndi Lauper for Gay Pride. They went on to create a calendar that summer, and a few years later the coffee table book Bella Donna. Both honed their craft working with each other and pushing each other to new artistic heights over the years.
