I’ve been a huge fan of drag queens for a long time, and there was definitely some major talent rocking the stage. There was also some major talent rocking the bench seats….and the backdoor….and the bathroom stall…but that’s a different kind of story. There were feather boas, grinding dance grooves, nun’s habits, the yummiest looking drag kings on the planet, sequined undies, stiletto heels, strange door prizes, and everyone there either being who they are…or who they want to be…all for a good cause.
And even though the bartender made me a horribly nasty drink called “Bitch on Wheels,” and then charged me for a new drink when I took it back to her visibly gagging, it was a fabulous time.
Here are some of my favorite answers from the very intensive interview portion of the pageant

Sister: What do you think is the best way to help with the Middle East peace process?
Drag King Contestant: Um…….Uh……Maybe fly some rainbow flags all over the place?
Sister: What do you want the judges to know about you?
Drag Queen Contestant: David Bowie is my spirit animal.
Sister: Which brand of lube do you feel lasts the longest?
Drag Queen Contestant: My saliva.
