The 5th annual Night of the Living Drag in New York City featured (almost) the entire cast of RuPaul’s All Star Drag Race Season Two (minus Adore Delano and winner, Alaska.) It all went down at Stage 48, where before the show, fans got their chance to meet and greet their favorite stars. (Pics here)
The place was SOLD OUT and the cast of Drag Brunch New York –also staged by Voss Events– got us warmed up for the main event. Shangela came out as Medea and stayed in that house dress all night. She chatted with stars after their performances. Shangela threw a little shade when she said Adore actually DID show up at the venue, took one look and said,
“I don’t belong here!“
She was teasing. But Phi Phi O’Hara was NOT when she stood firm and spoke (her) truth to power in asserting herself after her number. (Something about be who you gotta be) Photographer Ruben Natal-San Miguel and I had a bird’s eye view and he captured all of the madness from Alyssa Edwards (who entered through the crowd being carried), Coco Montrese (as Miss Nasty Jackson), Ginger Minj (who transformed from the Bride to Chucky), Katya (who got nasty herself with a crucifix), Roxxxy Andrews (all thick and caped and juicy and fab), Tatiana (who looked GORGEOUS and brought Katya to make out with) and finally Detox as the Bride of Frankenstein SLAYED and was ALIVE! Watch below.
