When we say "adaptation", we often recall certain types of formulas that turn from literature to film. In recent years, however, adaptation has been taking place across literature-film-TV shows, and the distinct starting point of originality has been blurred. According to Darwin's definition, adaptation is "a process by which an animal or plant species is fitted to its environment.” If we expand the aperture to the field of humanities-based on this definition, adaptation is no longer merely an additive function that supports the original and extends its vitality to a minimum, rather, it has a new value in itself, and at the same time provides a healthy circulation in which the original can survive in a changing socio-cultural environment.

“[Drag queens] ‘mother’ one another, ‘house’ one another, ‘rear’ one another, and the resignification of the family through these terms is not a vain or useless imitation, but the social and discursive building of community, a community that binds, cares, and teaches, that shelters and enables.” (137)
