Just who is Lawrence Chaney?
Lawrence Chaney is already one of the frontrunners in the season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, and one of my favorite surprises of the season. Lawrence is a drag queen from Glasgow, Scotland, where yet again drag, is a break out.... and some over the top and out of the box drag style...and has made herstory as one of the first two Scot queens to join the race, along with another fierce bitch, Ellie Diamond. I'm so here for her high inspiration and creative high brow style. I mean, in her first week she wowed the judges with her inspiration of Glaswegian architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, not to mention her ode to the late great Diana Rigg as Emma Peal. He's been doing drag for only six short years, and yet another long line of queens to represent the plus size gals, which I'm here for also. I can't believe at this point and with all these versions, we have not had a large gal win yet???? But let her set precedent I say. Let this diva show what her big self can do. Bitch is fierce. She is here to show her inner and outer beauty and not in just another leotard with fringe on them. She is bringing the fashion, and just may be the most tailored big girl yet. His name is Lawrence out of drag, so he kept his real name, and Chaney, because he was inspired by the 1920's film star, Lon Chaney, as he was the man known for a thousand faces, and Lawrence is getting to be known as a queen of a thousand looks...whose brings his legendary impressions, stupid voices and general buffoonery. She's is the kind of gal I'd like to share the dressing room with. He also started doing drag at just 17 and has been performing since, having mastered his craft with the likes of Gaga and Ru herself for inspiration. Growing up in Helensburgh, he fell victim to extreme bullying, but turned their torment into triumph using it to prepare time for his future in drag. And he refuses to be labeled as any one type of queen and avoids putting himself into a box. Known for his make up skills, ability to entertain an audience and possessing that famous Glaswegiian sense of humor, he could be a triple threat. Is this the first big gal who could take the title??? I sure hope so. This season has been more surprising then any other.
