Drag superstar Courtney Act releases provocative photo series (NSFW)

In her newly released collaboration with photographer Magnus Hastings, drag superstar Courtney Act is baring it all in all sorts of provocative positions with different men.

The pictures show the Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 6 queen as her ultra glamorous self while she poses in various sex positions with men in grungy looking spaces.

Hastings shared with Gay Star News that the shots were taken in places such as his parking garage and different parts of his building.

He and Courtney also went to gay bar Revolver in West Hollywood to borrow their public bathroom for the photoshoot.

On Facebook, Courtney said that the photos were inspired by some stories she had told Hastings, and the photographer decided to ‘bring them to life.’

Even though it’s not spelt out what exactly Courtney went through, it is not difficult to tell from the pictures that they must be pretty… action-packed.

Courtney revealed that she shopped the pictures around but was rejected because ‘they were too gay for the straight mags and too straight for the gay mags.’

‘We went through a stage of [Courtney] showing [the pictures] to a few people and they didn’t get it, which made her worry that they were actually porn,’ Hastings described.

Hastings added that it’s about showing the photo series to the right people who would appreciate the artistic direction.

The two had gone to several gay magazines in the U.S. but were given a pass.

‘Courtney is right in the fact that there was too much male butt to have them placed in a straight mag,’ Hastings told GSN. ‘We wanted to do this and then reveal that she was a “he” at a later date. That would have been fun. But the bubble butts put them off.’

‘So what do you do? You go to Europe where they aren’t so strangely hung up on all of that sh*t,’ Hastings said.

The photos are now in the latest issue of UK’s Gay Times magazine.

Hastings described the photo series as possessing humor while being insanely glamorous with ‘such a juxtaposition between uber polished Courtney and the grungy backgrounds.’

And why are all the men in the pictures not facing the camera at all?

‘The men are literally her props — faceless objects that are there more as strategically placed objects than lovers,’ said the photographer. ‘And all she cares about is the camera. That is her true love.’

Courtney agrees, saying, ‘Before you complain that I don’t look like I am enjoying it… That’s the point. It’s all about the camera for this deadpan fornicator.’

Two of the images are also in Hasting’s newly released photo book, ‘Why Drag?

With a foreword by Boy George, the 224-page book features shots of America’s biggest and most interesting drag performers — a total of 135 of them who are RuPaul’s Drag Race alums, underground drag legends and pageant queens — as well as short essays.
