In the drag community, impersonating a female is understood when you go out in drag, and female impersonator is a lovely term to dress it up or help someone understand what is being done/accomplished. But I say, call a spade a spade, and just use the term “drag queen.”
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. I’ve got so much damn information, there’s no time for idle chit-chatter!
Ah, yes, boys and girls, we meet again. I hope love is in the air, or something like that, as we celebrate the Valentine’s Day season.
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.
Season’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 Della’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? Let’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. Don’t ask me why!
Well, kids, you know the drill — we’ve been doing this for a long time and we’re here to chat about pageants and the queens who win them. And, those who almost win them, too, I guess.
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 — and not in print.
