In this photo taken on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, Israeli Orthodox Jew Shahar Hadar has his makeup applied as he prepares for a show at a drag queen school in downtown Tel Aviv, Israel. Hadar, a telemarketer by day, has taken the gay Orthodox struggle from the synagogue to the stage, beginning to perform as one of Israel’s few religious drag queens. His drag persona is that of a rebbetzin, a female rabbinic advisor, a wholesome guise that stands out among the sarcastic and raunchy cast of characters on Israel’s drag queen circuit.
