Ryan is a 16 year old drag queen, who reached out to us about becoming a contributor. We asked him some things about himself and although young, he really couldn’t be a better fit. Here’s how he got us to add him to the team.
As a young queen and up and coming drag queen I appreciate that Drag Queens Galore has a big focus on new hidden queens who the drag community wouldn’t know about unless they were connected to a drag race queen in some way. I love drag because it combines all of the arts, like reading as a form of creative writing (might be a stretch?), makeup as a form of painting, outfits as a form of construction and styling and designing, and the final result being a form of theatre/performing arts. I think of drag as not a creative outlet, but as SEVERAL creative outlets that can sometimes tire you out, but you keep coming back to it because you love it and it makes you feel appreciated. I started theatre as a need to find attention I wasn’t getting from people, then I found drag, which yes gets you attention, but also gives you that recognition of “hey I not only memorized something but I also transformed my body and face and constructed an entire outfit”.
We can’t wait for you to see what’s coming from this young contributor. Due to his age, we will not release his last name to protect his privacy.
