Drag Queens- The Spice of Life

Just like their are many people, their are many different types of fabulous drag queens. Some are high camp and others look so much like a woman it's sometimes hard to tell if their is a man inside. Some perform and others are club and party personitlies that everyone knows. But without them on the scene I think it would make, in the Mistress's opionion a borning gay canvas. At least less colorful. So, continuing Drag History Month here is the Mistress's list of different categories of queens and some even post from time to time!

The first group is your tyical over the top queens who sing and dance, and are very high camp. They are very well known in their city or possibly in the country. They usually don't run for the titles of pageants. They are there to purely entertain the masses with song, dance, and comedy.

Miss Richfield 1981

These are the Pageantry Queens. All these divas are beautiful and hard working. They are the ones who are constantly in drag shows raising funds for the gay organizations and are running for titles like Miss Gay America and Miss Gay USofA, plus their local titles. In there hometown everyone knows them. They work the drag circuit and have a list of titles a Christmas list long, or hold very high seats like Robin Kradles who is one of the beautiful Empress's of the Imperial Court!

Victoria DePaula

This group of queens are Female Illusionist. The divas in this group are like drag queens but aren't campy. They resemble real women with a little more of a edgier look. These are the ones where I think you have to do a double take to see if there is any hint of a man!

Amanda Lepore

Elaine Lancaster

Charles Busch

I like to call this category The Debutante Queens. These drags queens are ones that don't necessary perform except for charity shows. These queens are famous mostly for there signature looks, personalty, and all round fun times gals. There the ones people see everywhere in their local cities and are at all the parties. These are sort of the Paris Hilton of the drag world- famous for no special reason,except for their style and fun personalities.

    You need to start drinking your hooch out of Champagne flutes or Martini glasses. That way, when the stalkerazzi takes your photo, you don't end up in People magazine with a plastic cup in your hand.
