It was that great philosopher of modern culture, RuPaul, who said “You were born naked. The rest is drag.” Whether you pile on the sequins and transform your appearance with make-up and wigs, or simply suit up in pinstripes and heels, we all package ourselves. We project an image to the world that reflects who we want to be seen as. Usually this appearance is dictated by social codes, by what others expect to see if you are a doctor, construction worker, artist or Mom. You’re playing by someone else’s rules. What’s so subversive about drag queens is that they project what they themselves want the world to see. A man who wants huge boobs and to make the audience laugh. A man who wants to the world to gasp at a vision of glamour and ethereal beauty.

Our topic tonight – What is drag? What’s yours? And most importantly, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR TO THE QUEEN + ADAM SHOW? Enjoy this interview and let your mind expand!

    Thanks so much for the contact I got through you from an Adam Lambert fan who bought my send VIP ticket to the San Jose Queen + Adam Lambert concert. It is so hard to buy good seats in singles. I can’t afford to go very often, but took a chance and you hooked me up with a great contact. I love your site. Thanks so much. Linda

    What a great revelatory video–so well done. Thanks for posting. Really humanizes drag queens and what they’re about. Also, I fell in love with both gorgeous Raja and funny Vicky. Most of all, however, I was struck by how authentic and grounded each seemed. Loved Vicky saying “We give people permission to be who they are.”
