The Big, Gay, Fabulous, Drag Give-Away

 
Were just getting all kinds of festive here at the Casa du Borghese. First were hosting a Christmas Tree Showing of your fine trees, so if your interested in showing us your finery, please send away. Now the Mistress is in the mood to give. What else is new right? I love a good coffee table book, and drag queens, and if you do too, then you definitely must take part in the give away. “dr.a.g.” featuring photography from some of the best photograpghers and faces of drag you’ll recognize from all over, including right here at A Day with the Mistress Borghese. From queens from far and wide, to national and international, to RuPaul's Drag Race, to even your local town, there all here....... Lady Bunny, Jackie Beat, Coco Peru, Raye Sunshine, Miss Cotton, and many more. The man behind the production of the book is Christopher Logan, an actor you may recognize. I had my copy months ago, but have recently bought two more copies to give too, the lucky winners. The book, dr.a.g. (for dressed as girl) is a 160-page 28x28 coffee table book celebrating the beauty and diversity of drag. It features top performers shot by top celebrity and fashion photographers, to raise money for independent film production. I always enjoy looking at mine, while being queeny of course with my purple fur scarf on.............


Here are some shots from the book, followed by the rules..........


Now for the rules. Pretty simple. 1- Make a comment to this post and if you want, tell us who your favorite queen is. 2- Since the books were more expensive, you must be a follower. Those are the only two rules. Next Friday, the names will be placed in my handy dandy cock-a-tail shaker and two names will be pulled, with the winners being announced next weekend, December 14. Good luck to all, and trust me, you will LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! Now please excuse the Mistress as she is leaving for a weekend get-away and a spa visit! Tootles!

  8. Since I won the Amy Winehouse contest, I'm going to let the others have a chance this time so count me out.

    However, I WOULD like to say that my fave queen is RuPaul because I've met her and she was incredibly sweet to me.

    She's a gentleman AND a lady.

  11. Yes, I'm a follower and my favourite drag queen is the Canadian female impressionist Christopher Peterson. He lives and works mainly in the US now but occasionally comes back to Canada to do theatre. I just saw him last month in "Typhoon Judy," a Roxy Theatre production here in Edmonton. He was, as always, fabulous. Christopher co-wrote the play about Judy Garland with Edmonton's own drag legend, Darrin Hagen.

  12. Put me in your cocktail shaker as my coffee table is bare. I loved Jimmy James the moment I saw him on Phil Donahue many years ago, I've been a follower of Bunny's blog for years and it got me into the blog world but I have a devotion for Varla Jean Merman since the day I saw her wacky videos in the Bourbon Pub when I was still in high school.
