All of them

In New Orleans, it's a toss-up between Ursuline Burgundy, Klorocks Bleachman and the inimitable Eva Las Vegas.

I love this shot of a horrified woman leaving the audience as Eva reaches for a (lip-synched) high note.

Wait, bitch. Juanita is one of the NICE ones.

And in San Francisco, that's rare.

Pam Ann. Heard her interviewed on Q last night - she's just obnoxious, not even remotely funny.

by Anonymousreply 606/22/2012

Psst...R6, although Pam Ann IS hideous, she is a real woman who longs to be a drag queen

Oh die in a grease fire, r10, you politically incorrect gobshite.

Musto would mention MiMi I'mFurst from time to time. Loved the name.

Then saw the poor thing on Drag Race and was disappointed that she didn't live up to her wonderful name.

I find the drag king Waldo Tunnel from San Leandro particularly hideous.

Jackie Beat and Lady Bunny are the only drag queens I have ever seen who are laugh-out-loud funny.

R3, that is priceless!

R10, does it make you feel more unified with the whole species to be a cunt with a cocklet?

Years ago Lady Charles of St. Louis exemplified that boozy, proud, wrinkled, tragic dreadfulness of "THIS IS MY LIFE" (fall to knees, fist up) "AND I DON'T GIVE A DAMN..." school of drag.

The "Girls Will Be Girls" ensemble of Jack Plotnick's Evie, Clinton Leupp's Coco, and Jeffery Roberson's Varla are just about perfect for current clowning. Looking forward to the new one this year and still enjoying the Youtube shows.

I think it was Miss J.C., but another dragster in St. Louis - from Texas - stood 6' 2" and would be on at the end of a long night and always drunk out of her mind. She'd inevitably kick an enormous high-heeled pump off her foot into the audience, sometimes causing injuries. And then she would collapse to the stage floor after a teetering wobble.

Poor, ghetto stupid R18

Hedda Lettuce's hostility seems like more than just an act. I suppose anyone would be bitter too if they'd wed their career to a green wig. But her Twitter feed has its moments, so maybe she's should change her name to "Homeopathic"...cause she's better in small doses.

Drag queens are over.

by Anonymousreply 2206/23/2012

You see, folks like R10 are so clueless about everything that it's almost breathtaking.

So you think drag is sexist?

More sexist than a shallow woman who goes under the knife a dozen times for plastic surgery; who spends $$$ for a pair of fancy high heel shoes; women who make a living by just being a woman (K Kardashian and all) and who is looked up as a role model by thousands and thousands of young girls; women who marry for money or for shallow reason; etc and yet you point the finger at drag queens and cry (sniff) sexism?

by Anonymousreply 2306/23/2012

Another vote for Justin Bond. I just don't get it.

by Anonymousreply 2406/23/2012

I love the drag threads. It brings out the breast in people.

R19, learn how to drop your cookies, did you?

This one is so delusional in Chicago. And she's friends with that guy who goes to all the star autograph shows.

They are all bad names because drag queens are a very bad, very boring thing.

by Anonymousreply 2806/23/2012

I remember one in Portland, OR tried to pick me up when he was out of drag (he was actually very handsome and well built out of drag)--he was nervous, so he kept doing the Sandra Bernhard routine from "Without You, I'm Nothing" where he would make a quip, then stare off into space while smiling broadly as if expecting applause when nothing came. It was incredibly offputting, and I fled.

And, as if on cue, we have the "let's shit on the drag queens and anyone who isn't an assimilationist gay man these days" thread.

On Pride weekend? Check.

In Birmingham that mantle is worn by Libertee Belle.

by Anonymousreply 3206/23/2012

Agreed, R31. I thought the thread would be more from the view that some are simply awful, and that in itself is a fun thing. I didn't expect - stupid me - that it would inevitably be another turn of "Hate the Gay Cultural Diversity in the Name of Fitting In, Which Is Another Definition for Shame."

I never "frock up" (well, maybe once - for a party) but I love seeing drag, particularly the downtown NYC version.

by Anonymousreply 3406/23/2012

R20 misspelled "grease" as "greese" not once but twice, and no one blinked?

by Anonymousreply 3506/23/2012

r35, no one wanted to anger him when he'd just finished that fifth bacon sundae from BK. Danger of spewage, you know.

I love drag. It'll never die.

The best name, though, is "Sofonda Cox". Or maybe "Pearl Mesterpanz". Or "Agnes Day".

I was always fond of Augusta Wind, myself.

And the evergreen Iona Trailer and all her Iona sisters.

As they are women, it's rather different.

Drag used to be revolutionary and transgressive, and sometimes still is, but rarely.

[quote]revolutionary and transgressive

What? Is Camille Paglia a DL member now??

Or has someone channeling Susan Sontag?

by Anonymousreply 4006/23/2012

Drag IS totally revolutionary and transgressive!

Faith Michaels in Key West. Takes herself so seriously and comes across as laughable. IT IS DRAG, dear.

Are there any photos of Jackie Beat, Lady Bunny or Peaches Christ out od drag? Did you guys see where Jackie has a Kickstarter to get both his hips replaced?

R8's looks vile.

by Anonymousreply 5002/24/2013

The r10's of the world are vile bores.

Honey, it's not drag queens that put so many women in battered women's shelters and rape wards.

And moreover, YOU are the reason why so many young women today refuse to identify as feminists. You and your ilk have tacked your addled, overly-academic PC nonsense onto the legitimate claims of feminism, thereby ruining the movement. You've done far more harm to women than any drag queen ever could.

by Anonymousreply 5102/24/2013

I didn't know people still did drag. It seems like a throw back to an earlier time, kind of like blackface.
