Danny Beard slayed the (tough) competition on series 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK…
At the recent DragConUK 2023, the drag superstar talked to PinkNews and ruVealed some thoughts on Drag queens in the UK vs the rest of the world (the actual world, not the series…)
I just think we aren’t afraid to take the piss out of ourselves. And therefore we’re not afraid to take the piss out of each other.
… I just think it’s fun. Fun is at the at the forefront of British drag. And I love having fun. And I know my audiences love having fun. And other than that – we’re the best.
I feel like I was very honest and true to myself on Drag Race; I’m a sassy, shady, singing, cartoon clown, and I lived like that. I went round Tesco, reading people in the aisles.
I don’t think people understand that. There’s a persona, and there’s a person behind the persona. But hopefully, people have got to see the person behind the persona on Drag Race.
Pink News asked; If you could do anything different during your season of Drag Race, what would it be?“
Probably poison Cheddar early on, so I could have taken more badges.
But other than that, nothing. I really enjoyed it.
You can watch the all 4 seasons of Drag Race UK now on WOW Presents Plus. And check out the “insane” goings on at DragCon UK ’23 below.
