'Driving Drag In Mississippi And Other Stories' From Christian Hendricks' 'South of the Ohio' (VIDEO)

Christian Hendricks' series documenting gay life in the South, "South of the Ohio," continues with its latest installment as he interviews Justin from Jackson, Mississippi.

The video interview, entitled "Driving in Drag in Mississippi And Other Stories," features Justin, a gay man who lives in Jackson, as he voices his fears of driving in drag to the local gay club. Justin also discusses being gay in the South and masculinity:

There are gay people that really fit that heteronormative masculinity stereotype, but I'm not one of them, and I don't really care to be anymore. That's not always easy but you pick to be what you what you want to be, or you pick to be what society wants you to be -- but you have to be happy either way.

Hendricks' previous "South of the Ohio" video about a young gay Christian using Grindr to invite other gay men to his church, can be seen here. And for more from Hendricks, follow him on Twitter.
