Last month dealt a massive blow to the national female impersonation community. We lost two wildly popular, award-winning queens and just plain, good people apart from all the accolades and fame.
Ah, my dear readers, we come together again and celebrate all that is good (and sometimes not so good) in the world of drag pageantry. Iâ€™ve got so much damn information, thereâ€™s no time for idle chit-chatter!
Greetings, my dear readers and the happiest of new years! I hope you all had good holidays and are ready to make 2013 legendary. I, for one, am looking at doing some things differently myself now that I am a year older and I lost my dear, sweet Mother in December as many of you may know. I thank all those who called, sent texts and sent beautiful flowers and cards. Your kindness will not be soon forgotten. It makes one think about life in new ways, for sure.
Seasonâ€™s greetings, kids! Here we are with Thanksgiving and Hanukkah behind us and Christmas and Kwanzaa and the New Year coming at us fast. And. never forget to add in Miss Dellaâ€™s birthday in there, too. My older (never old) ass was 46 on the 18th. Oh boy, what trouble was I able to find to welcome another year? Letâ€™s see!
As I sit down to write another tardy Drag Rag, it occurs to me, as it does every once in a while, that I have not rounded up much tea this time. It seems the pageantry calendar is dry about this time, with the exception of a few tidbits. Pageant enthusiasts notice this every once in a while and it seems like it happens before and after the holidays. Donâ€™t ask me why!
My dear readers, we gather once more, as we have for 16 years now, to get updates on pageantry tea and such. It has been a busy time since the last one, for sure. I hope you all noticed or know that the last Rag was so blessed long that it appeared online only â€” and not in print.
Boys and girls! Happy Pride and national conventions and all that other jazz. What a busy summer, but itâ€™s just about over and Miss Della is so pleased to see drag-friendly weather just around the corner. Let me start shaving now. LOL
Well, kids â€” while I write this dittie, itâ€™s hot as hell in the Queen City. Here we are, having celebrated July 4th and I needed some independence from the humidity, by golly! No thinking of drag for me until November now, okay?
Oh, my gosh â€” letâ€™s see what I can mess up this time! I must have been tapping away while I was falling asleep that last time â€” all this talk about going to the formers show in Hickory for Miss NC U.S.of A., and didnâ€™t even mention the results! Saywhat? Seems like I missed something else, too â€” Iâ€™ll figure it out shortly.
Hey everybody â€” here I am working on another late submission of the Rag. Just as I promised before, we get a promo of Luscious, the only Carolinian to win Miss Gay U.S.ofA. Too bad itâ€™s 10 months into her reign.
Greetings, gentle readers â€” is that love in the air I sense, or just Latino sweat from the nearby soccer field? LOL! I hope this finds everyone doing well in this second month of 2012 (Leap Year, no less!)
Seasonâ€™s greetings, boys and girls! Where has the time gone? Here we are at the end of another year of shows and pageants. What will 2012 hold? Whoâ€™s to say? I think it will be a fierce year of comebacks and maybe a good new queen or two. Letâ€™s hope for the best!
Well, chirrens, you know the drillâ€¦we meet again to discuss pageants and the goddesses who do them.
