Cosplay, a portmanteau of the words “costume” and “play”. It’s a performance art in which participants called cosplayers design, create and wear costumes to represent characters from pop culture.
On this week’s episode of the Pride podcast, host Levi Chambers chatted with self-proclaimed “geek, cosplayer, model and loser”, Michael Hamm about the very queer world of cosplay.
