Hello Friends, Family & Drag-Hags!
We’re writing to tell you about a really exciting project headed by Season 6 RuPaul’s Drag Race Winner Bianca Del Rio and CBS News editor Matt Kugelman . It’s a revenge comedy feature film and it looks hilarious!
They launched an indiegogo campaign in order to raise funds to create this massive film — About a teacher in a small country town that gets fired by the homophobic staff and decides to return in disguise as a woman to get revenge on the town and the people that were so nasty to him!
We’ve just donated to this project, and believe in this film and in Bianca & Matt. PLEASE take a moment to check out the campaign at www.HurricaneBianca.com. This is our way to be part of an amazing film and tell the movie studios that the world needs more Bianca Del Rio! PLUS, there are incredible rewards including personalized insult videos from Bianca, personalized drawings, autographs as well as a few exciting surprises to come during the campaign!
If everyone that follows Bianca on twitter donates even just $1, we would have $23.5K! So imagine what $20 or $50 can do!
It would mean the world if you could DONATE what you can and spread the word. You can do this by simply clicking the Facebook and Twitter buttons on the page in the campaign link.
Just two clicks make a BIG difference!!
Thank you so much for helping to support this project we believe in.
Hope to see you soon!!
Drag Queens Galore!
We took a look into the next season’s American Horror Story Freak Show. We couldn’t help but think there may be a couple of really good guest stars from the drag world that might fit well with this theme.
The obvious two famous drag queens would be Sharon Needles and Bianca Del Rio. Sharon was definitely a “Fearce” queen with her goth look and sometimes deeply scary costumes. And Bianca, well, c’mon, we crowned the clown. No two queens have been more fit for such a series. But we thought of a few others who might fit into the Freak Show theme.
First, we thought of Raja, who portrayed Carrie as one of her runway looks, definitely into the Horror Story factor, she’d add a little “Freak” to the Show we’re sure.
Our next vote is Milk, who’s unique style and creative costumes would probably fit anything as original as American Horror Story and especially something labeled “Freak Show” since she definitely brought a side of drag most watchers were not used to. She let her freak flag fly and we’re so happy she did.
Of course, Shangela gets our vote because .. well, she could come out of a box and just be done with it. Halleloo
Finally, we thought it would be a grand idea to have someone already hosting a freak show, Edie the Entertainer. She’s currently hosting Zumanity by Cirque de Solei in Las Vegas. She’s clearly seen her share of “Freak Show” and doesn’t scare easily.
Well who doesn’t want to get nailed?
They’re our votes, let us know if you have some queens you think would fit the upcoming season of American Horror Story Freak Show? New episodes start October 15 at 10PM on FX.
Peaches Christ Productions Proudly Presents
THE WIZARD OF OZ
with the ADULTS-ONLY pre-show parody
“The Wizard Of Odd” starring
SHARON NEEDLES as THE WICKED WITCH
PEACHES CHRIST as PEACHY GALE
At the Castro Theatre
Saturday, July 12, 2014 @ 3pm & 8pm
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOMO! THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOMO!
SISSY THAT WALK DOWN THE YELLOW-BRICK ROAD
WITH TWO OF THE WORLD’S MOST SPOOKTACULAR QUEENS.
DON’T LOOK BEHIND THE CURTAIN—THEY HAVEN’T TUCKED YET!
Warning! No young children admitted. This show is age-restricted to 13 years and up.
(San Francisco, June xx, 2014) When Peaches Christ and Sharon Needlesfirst worked together in 2012, they played among the most iconic characters in movie history in THE SILENCE OF THE TRANS. Last year, they were ‘90s teen-angst witches in THE CRAFT. So for their third annual collaboration, it only makes sense that they’re embodying the most iconic witch story in history, not to mention the movie that single-handedly turned the entire country gay while WWII distracted its leaders.
That’s right: THE WIZARD OF OZ is finally getting the Peaches Christ treatment!
Peaches will embrace her inner Judy complex in the role of Peachy Gale, and Sharon—the high priestess of Party City herself—will go green in a totally non-environmental way (all that hairspray is hell on the ozone layer) as the Wicked Witch. It’ll be a tornado of excitement when we gather at another queer institution beloved by old queens, the Castro Theatre, on Saturday, July 12 at 3 and 8pm—ONE DAY ONLY!
Carmen Carrera posted on her Facebook page the news of what has been the silver lining to all the controversy over the past couple weeks. They were able to raise much needed money for HIV/AIDS research. Finally coming together to fight the real enemy a disease which is still affecting a majority of the LGBTQ Community.
We raised $245,000 for HIV/AIDS research by auctioning off the “two anatomy” nude images of me photographed by David LaChapelle for Life Ball 2014.
Thank you to Gery Keszler and everyone at Life Ball for this!! We did something great!! It feels amazing to be able to work with the best in the industry and contribute to Europe’s largest charity organization.
Know your status and get tested, we may not be able to raise that amount of money, but we can do something to fight against this horrible disease. Knowing is half the battle.
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.
Last season’s top 3 RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant, Roxxxy Andrews, has evolved from Pageant Queen to personal make-up artist to her Snatch Game persona, THE Tamar Braxton.
We here at Drag Queens Galore rooted for her last season despite the “Bad Girl” front she portrayed. We felt for her and her emotional confession about her family history. Sadly, not everyone can know their birth family and/or can have what can be deemed as “normal.”
We love her strength and understand the lack of connection can make people be more defensive. Her emotional apology to RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 winner, Jinkx Monsoon for the harsh treatment was given prior to the finale personally and also on screen.
This fine beauty has shown us resilience, charisma and talent. We can’t wait to see what’s next for our Season 5 favorite. Always know, your family is who you choose, not who you’re born to.
Thank you Roxxxy, thank you!
