Sarah Bork presents "Girls Gotta Eat", an ongoing series of interviews and photographs of drag queens and their grocery shopping and eating habits. A lifelong foodie and admitted lover of grocery shopping, Sarah was inspired to focus on drag queens after seeing two 'ladies' standing at a deli counter discussing their choice of cold cuts for the week.

These colorful cinematic portraits engage viewers to celebrate the commonality of our human experience. While seemingly joyful and lighthearted these moments of character prompt observers to consider more complex themes of diversity, equality, traditional gender roles, nurture, comfort and self care.
