RuPaul’s DragCon is three days celebrating art, pop culture and all things drag. We love that it often provides us an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our favorite Drag Race contestants – and other people who make our favorite reality program happen. So, as DragCon 2019 descends on New York City, we look back at some of our top DragCon interviews.
8. Kim Chi
We asked Drag Race Season 8 Queen what gives her life, and she provided three practical tips.
7. Alexis Michelle
How does drag change your life? The Drag Race Season 9 queen explains the process from the inside out.
When gender transcender Aja announced that “gender is over,” we had to ask: what did they mean? The Drag Race Season 9 and All Stars 3 alum explains.
5. The Vixen
Just as Mother Ru has so often asked the final queens to do, we ask Drag Race Season 10 queen The Vixen what she would advice she would give her younger self.
4. Trinity the Tuck
She was “Trinity Taylor” on Drag Race Season 9, but she became “Trinity the Tuck” and co-champion of All Stars 4. So naturally we asked her about the art of tucking; here’s what she had to say.
3. The Creators of Drag Race
They’re the only people on this list who didn’t compete on Drag Race, but without them, we might never have met Ru’s girls. Here’s why they thought the show was a risk worth taking for the good of the LGBTQ community.
After her stint on Drag Race Season 9, Peppermint went on to become a Metrosource cover girl and the first trans person known to originate a starring role on Broadway. She told us about achieving this milestone.
1. Sasha Velour
How does your life change when you win RuPaul’s Drag Race? We asked Drag Race Season 9 victor Sasha Velour at DragCon, and her answer may surprise you.
