Zachary Drucker, Broadly/Vice
I'm a Photographer, Storyteller, and Content Creator!
Many of my personal projects hold themes of gender identity, sexuality, and humor.
As a photographer, it’s my goal to create an image that tells a story. I’ve spent over 10 years photographing LGBTQ+ portraiture and nightlife in New York City. I have photographed events at Stonewall, Javitz Center, Club Cumming, BB King Theater, 54 Below, The Public Theatre, Hammerstein Ballroom, and The Standard Hotel. My subjects have included Margaret Cho, Peppermint, Buck Angel, Alan Cumming, Liza Minelli, Jacob Tobia, Amanda Lepore, Boulet Brothers, Mindless Self Indulgence, and Whitney Day. Along with many other great events, I’ve photographed RuPaul’s Drag Con, Bushwig, and the NYC Pride.
I enjoy capturing the unique aspects of my subjects, whatever they may be. I am inspired by individuals who defy social norms and want to celebrate and share their story. We will work together to create an image that best represents you!
As a performer, one of my career highlights was sharing my coming out story at the Speak Up, Rise Up Festival, and later having my story featured in the book RISK!: True Stories People Never Thought They'd Dare to Share by Kevin Allison in 2018 as well as in the RISK! Podcast in 2020. I also spent the early part of the aughts performing and producing comedy shows all over the Northeast. Memorable shows included the long-running Dykes on Mics at Henrietta Hudson and Stonewall, as well as my solo show, They Don’t Serve Chicken Parm in Bellevue at the Magnet Theatre in New York City. I’ve shared the stage with Kate McKinnon and Amy Schumer. I've appeared on The Sopranos, MTV, and was a guest on Howard Stern.
March 2019: I modeled in The Gender Spectrum Collection which was produced by Broadly/Vice and photographed by Zachary Drucker. The aim of this collection was to provide free use stock images of trans and gender non-conforming people.
June 2019: I modeled in the Saks X Stonewall LGBTQ Pride Collection. The collection was featured in print and internet advertising as well as in the New York flagship store windows.
I am now based in Atlanta, GA and available to travel worldwide!
