In this weekly feature, Ill share with you all a weekly guest, and you tell me in only three words what come to mind.
In Three Words...
This queen is not of your typical drag style, and I'm here for that! Meet Rocco Dix, who says he is an Inhabitant of the planet Queer. Rocco is from Mexico City, where he is a make-up and hair stylist, a drag artist, a seductor, and has also been a stylist for many of Mexico's celebrities. When Rocco decided to enter the drag arena, instead of going full on camp or high fish drama, he chose to go the route more of drag king, even though he is male, and a damn fine specimen too I might add. His style and routines are very burlesque in nature, enjoying and showing a more risqué performance, and revealing ample amounts of skin. His shows borderline, S&M, and leather-ish, while incorporating burlesque dance and lip-synch. I think it's great that we have another performer taking drag out of its usual box and taking it in a different direction. We have straight women doing drag, straight males entering the world of drag, we have lesbians as drag kings, why not have a gay man performing as a drag king??? The execution of make-up is flawless. I love his color use and style of contours. I love the feminine look of it while penciling in a mustache. Not to mention the fem side matched against a chiseled body. Something very arousing about that. Or am I just a pig? If I ever make it to Mexico, sign me up to catch a show.
