Biography

Zackary Drucker (born 1983) is an American trans woman multimedia artist, LGBT activist, actress, and television producer. She is a consultant on the TV series Transparent and is based out of Los Angeles. Drucker is an artist whose work explores themes of gender and sexuality and critiques predominant two-dimensional representations. Drucker has stated that she considers discovering, telling, and preserving trans history to be not only an artistic opportunity but a political responsibility. Drucker's work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and film festivals including but not limited to the 2014 Whitney Biennial, MoMA PS1, Hammer Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern art.

Personal Life

When Drucker met Rhys Ernst, Drucker had recently graduated from the School of Visual Arts and was on the TV show "Artstar". Drucker had never dated a man before and Ernst had never dated a woman. In 2014, Drucker and Ernst had a show at the Whitney Museum of American Art which captured them in day-to-day relatable scenarios like celebrating anniversaries, staying in, or relaxing by the pool. The former couple published the photographs of them together, which the New York Times, stated was an important public record for transgender life. Although the couple is no longer together, Drucker and Ernst want to show that transgender people can live ordinary lives, filled with love. In a 2014 magazine, Drucker stated that she hopes that one day we can surpass the binaries of gender entirely.

Photographs from her graduate thesis show, "5 East 73rd Street", feature photographs of mentor Flawless Sabrina. That same year, her work was included in a group exhibition called Girly Show: Pin-ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave at the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art at Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga.Drucker did not have role models growing up, but her parents were progressive and supported her gender nonconformity.
