Drag Queens Galore - Need We Say More?

American Horror Story and Drag Queens

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.

@PeachesChrist and @Sharon_Needles in The Wizard of Oz

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!

Life Ball 2014 Auctions @Carmen_Carrera’s nude images and raises $245,000

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, 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 Galore is gagging over @RoxxxyAndrews

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!

Raven and her baby BLU

We wanted to feature @RupaulsDragRace Season 2 and @DragRaceAllStar runner up Raven’s son BLU. Like his mommy, he’s got a lot of diversity in his arsenal of looks.

10352770_10152499324699274_3256595592944336843_n

Someone looks like he’s getting in trouble!  But that sweater is to die for!  Of course his wardrobe is fabulous, have you met his mom? We love the love these queens have for their babies.  Does BLU stay at home with his daddy, Martin when Raven is on the road?  He’s lucky to be a part of a two parent home.

image

He’s clearly a road dog and BLU has a great smile.  But we can’t quite see his sweater in this picture.  Isn’t he in SoCal? Don’t “they” say, “it never rains in southern California” why is he so cold?

Another couture shot of baby BLU fresh out the groomers with a nice pose.  This family really does give good face and they all know it.

But the family that naps together, stays together.  Get some rest you two, there’s a lot of photo ops coming for both of you! (Shhh, they’re dreaming of when BLU wins the Dog Race All Stars.)

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.

Bianca Del Rio on She-Mail

During our visit to the show at the #Trannyshack, @biancadelrio tried to calm the situation down about She-Mail stating, “She-mail was a play on words from E-Mail.”  Further discrediting the rumors that “She-mail” is a derogatory term toward Transgendered people.

The audience seemed happy about her statement, it wasn’t happiness to discredit the negative connotation, it was to lighten the load of the viewers and supporters of both Carmen Carrera and RuPaul.

If you’re like us, we really feel the arguments toward each other within the LGBT community just takes our focus of the fight against the anti-LGBT groups.  The only way we can persevere is by coming together and getting past our differences.  All members of the LGBT community have experienced enough bullying without having to bully each other.

We hope Bianca’s message of “no offense intended” from the Drag Queen of Mean can be the one that calms this whole thing down.  Oh and don’t call Bianca, Lady Bunny and Sherry Vine Granny.

Thank you Miss Rio, we’ll blame it all on you, you’re used to it right?
