RuPaul’s DragCon LA is happening RIGHT NOW. Wonder why drag is having such a moment (besides the obvious reasons?)
10 year-old Desmond, who is as old as the Drag Race itself, was introduced to drag after watching the show. He’s obssesed ever since.
In an interview for this episode Hype & Influence, Bob the Drag Queen says why drag is the ultimate art form for the underdog,
“Drag went from being referential to being the reference, which is crazy. People pull from drag culture because drag artists are -it’s the ultimate art form and it’s the last underdog art form. I mean, even clowns have college, you know what I mean? Drag queens, you have to learn drag from another drag queens.“
