DRAG QUEENS Vie For Attention On TV Screen And On Stage!

Eager for a TV show that "explores and exploits the glamorous and ghetto-fabulous drag queen scene of New York City?"


Then keep your fingers crossed that some network picks up The Queens of Drag: NYC, a reality show in progress that's being shopped around.


The cast members, including Lady Bunny, Sherry Vine, Peppermint and Kevin Aviance, have been filmed performing their various musical acts. 

I was NOT asked to participate and I'm composing my scathing letter to the clueless casting agent!  Kidding—it doesn't look like I'd be a good fit anyway.  I'm too modern!


Obviously the producers are hoping for the same type of success garnered by RuPaul's Drag Race, which is gearing up for its second season.


Last season's winner, Bebe Zahara Benet.


The upcoming season includes a NYC gal, Sahara Davenport, who cut her teeth on the Texas pageant scene.


I recently hung out with Sahara and her girlfriend-boyfriend Manila.  In "real life" the two are gay lovers!


Also in drag news, but in the world of theatre, chanteuse Justin Bond is teaming up with the gender-fuck dance troupe Pixie Harlots for Christmas Spells, a holiday extravaganza set in a bordello.

 Definitely not the kind of entertainment you'll find on TV. 

Is that good or bad?
