While many queens have risen through the ranks much easier these days, there is a group of drag legends that rose to that title of legend by their own hands and talent, with the like of Lady Bunny, Varla Jean Merman, Dina Martina And Miss Richfield. While many queens have come and gone...there all still here. And like those hard working queens is Coco Peru! Coco has been a gay household name for over 30 years, where she got her start in the late 80's as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of New York, where she produced, directed and wrote her own shows, and has since enjoyed an expansive career. She's toured the world and has gotten over 10 millions views for her You Tube videos, and her Instagram shows have been a god send while in quarantine. She is one queen on my list every gay man should see in person...I love Coco's style , but come for the bitterness and snark. I've never been disappointed with a Coco show. Coco is considered "the hostess with that something extra. But more importantly she has never forgotten her roots and history and has been a passionate activist and gives unflagging support of the LGBT and fierce dedication to AIDS-related charities in particular. But those facial expressions and snark get me! And we can't forget that trademark flip. And any bitch who can eat off a plate with whore on it, is alright in my book.
And this video will show just how similar Coco and I are in an interview process.
As the Mistress of the Casa du Borghese I sure can see where she is coming from. Much like Coco auditioning choir boys, auditioning houseboys is just never easy for me. But I just hope my boys too have been practicing their singing. Otherwise caroling is going to be the talk of the town again.
