New Format for Drag Queens Galore

We’re so excited about our new format.  While we put off the work to transfer things over, we couldn’t be more happy with the outcome of the new look.  Let us know what you think about our new site.  We’re also looking for people to contribute to the content.

We know there are a lot of fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race out there, but we’re looking for some quality “Drag Geeks” who know more than just Season 6 facts. Let us know your thoughts on the lesser known queens of our favorite seasons like three, two and one.

We aren’t looking for people who know every Bianca Del Rio catch phrase, although, kudos to you for knowing the “Rolodex of Hate.”  We’re looking for people who can speak on the travesty of Nina Flowers and Bebe Zahara Benet.  We also wanna know how you feel about the heartbreaking episode of Ongina Ruvealing her “secret.”

Oh and our shameless plug for Hurricane Bianca fits right here.  Don’t forget if you’re following us, donate 10 bucks (or more) the Bianca Del Rio’s movie, Hurricane Bianca.  We don’t all have the experience of being fired for being gay, but that’s a luxury honey.

Deja Re, Las Vegas Drag Queen You Should Know

Deja Re holds a very special place in Drag Queens Galore’s heart.  She’s not yet been on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but we’re sure you’re gonna love her as much as we do when she blows your mind.

Deja is originally from Santa Barbara and now performs with India Ferrah from Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 3.  Remember who Mimi Imfurst was lifting above her head during a Lip Sync for their lives? Well Deja and India are performing in the fabulous Las Vegas at Piranha Night Club.

We met Deja after the Season Six finale and she was the most pleasant, entertaining and funny queen we’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with.  She’s sexy and together, she knows who she is and we know she’s got some really great things coming ahead of her.

Here’s to Deja Re, have the best time possible on your way to the top. We hope you don’t forget the little people when you make it big.

Drag Queens in Person

We all pay attention to our favorite queens on Social Media, watch for them on TV and sometimes we’re even lucky enough to meet them at their shows.  We had the opportunity and blew it.

We met Bianca Del Rio and couldn’t manage to get anything we’d planned on saying to her out of our mouths.  Heck, I was lucky I got my name right, she asked me a couple times.  We were nervous, this whole time we told each other, we could totally be friends with her.  We get a chance to be memorable and we just ended up gagging on her eleganza.

And why shouldn’t we? She’s the newest member of the Royal Family of RuPaul’s Drag Race.  She’s making money by making fun of people.  No, literally, if you donate to Hurricane Bianca there’s a chance she’ll “Hate You” which is a good thing.  People beg her to “Read” them and she does it well.

This got us thinking, what do you say to someone you feel like you know,  who is kind of a celebrity, but apparently not enough for Twitter to verify them? (don’t get us started on that one, why are there so many RuPauls?)  We made her gifts and those brought out that signature laugh, so it wasn’t a total loss. But we write about these queens and see their shows, but talking to them can be so hard.

We really do admire all the forms of drag and all the queens who we’ve met, seen on TV or even just follow us on Twitter.  Just don’t ask us to be witty in person.   Apparently that’s reserved for the keys on our laptop.  We introduce ourselves to every queen we meet just because we are huge fans.

We did get to hang out in Las Vegas with some really great queens like India Ferrah and April Carrion who were the sweetest queens. But we were probably a lot more comfortable with the numerous alcoholic refreshments we’d imbibed (PSA: Drink Responsibly).

Did we mention you should donate to Hurricane Bianca so you can get an “Insult Video” dedicated to you! We there’s the shameless plug.  We’ll be riding that for a while, so be sure to tell your friends hunties!

RuPaul’s Drag Race Off Season

All has been said and done, a new queen has been crowned and all the reunions have been done.  What do we do on Monday nights now?  We definitely haven’t had a chance to fully grasp the lack of Drag Race yet since we saw Bianca and some local San Francisco Bay Area queens last night.

We also went to the finale in Las Vegas and saw a lot of the Season Six cast members along with some of our favorites from previous seasons.

But when this burst of excitement about the season is over, what will we watch?  LogoTV is going to be airing Season Six over again during Mondays so you can relive your favorite moments again.

If you’re like us, you’ll vow to never love another drag race season again after this one and fall in love all over again when the next season begins next spring.

Let us know what you’ll be watching Mondays for the rest of the year.

Our Vegas Experience

When we went to Vegas for the Finale, my wife was so star struck she took pictures with every queen we met, TV star, upcoming queen or veteran queen.  It made us realize, we needed to get more information on the queens who weren’t just gaining exposure from RuPaul’s Drag Race and it reminded us that we didn’t hear about the past Drag Queens nearly enough.

This is when and why we started DragQueensGalore.com, please visit our site and follow us on Twitter, like our Facebook page and let us know what you think or if you have any ideas.  We’ll be posting a lot and hope to cover everyone’s ideas in a timely manner.

Drag Queens Galore Foundation Story

My wife and I are the co-founders of DragQueensGalore.com.  We thought about creating this business because we didn’t see anything covering every aspect of Drag Queens.  We saw everyone covering the current stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the newest UK sensation, Drag Queens of London.

What we didn’t see were the Drag Stars from the past, before there was a RuPaul’s Drag Race or even a RuPaul, Drag Queen of all ages.  We didn’t see much about Lady Bunny nationally.  We didn’t see too much about stars dressing up as ladies, which doesn’t make them much of a Drag Queen.  But the forward thinking of some of the film makers from the mid 1900’s made leaps and bounds by adding men dressed as women.

The other thing we didn’t see was anyone mentoring people who weren’t on TV.  Not to mention, there were a whole bunch of performers who didn’t care to audition for the show due to their success in their own careers already.

So we tried to get a site up and going to expose the other, less known Drag Queens in history and the Queens we should know or may soon know.  We’re really interested in feedback from visitors to our site.  We’re looking for originality and a lot of fun.
