Judith Halberstam wrote a book called 'Female Masculinity', which attracted a lot of controversy from various academic circles. She has also authored books such as 'Skin Shows: Gothic Horror and the Technology of Monsters', 'The Drag King Book' etc. Judith's work is seen as reinforcing and supporting heterosexuality. Some queer scholars also consider her work as highlighting the concept of 'femaleness'.

Her latest book, 'In a Queer Time and Place: Transgender bodies, Subcultural Lives' throws light on queer subculture. Judith 'Jack' Halberstam is also one of the most popular and successful supporters of drag king-ing.
