I love DragQueens
I really do. I love the makeup and the costumes. Women can easily put on makeup and run around in heels…but for big med to tuck and suck themselves into their get-up is amazing. I was first introduced to drag from the movie To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar. If you have not seen it you will love it! Its sooo funny. I love John Leguizamo’s character!
Anyway, I have been hooked on RuPaul’s Dragrace and DragU on Logo. When my roomie told me about a drag show close by I jumped at the chance to see them with my big brown eyes.
(My roommate, Crystal and I)
We went to “Drag Idol” at Oasis Night Club in Upland, Ca. There were so many Queens! They were all pretty rough around the edges, lol, but I was still really excited.
Divas…they were all divas too.
This next Queen had a cool outfit on and red hair. She sang “Diamonds are Forever”.
It was packed. I didn’t know this little club was so popular, it was my first time.Loved her eye shadow. These men have talent!We had so much fun, danced till we couldn’t feel our feet. I think hands down, gay clubs have the best music.
Now, so no one gets it twisted…I am NOT gay. I just enjoy the art and performance of Drag Queens. The makeup is amazing.
When we were younger, Crystal and I would go out all the time and have a blast. Its crazy to see how much we have changed over the years. Its been a journey and its not over!
Happy 27th Birthday Peakin!
