Sashay into any big convention and you can expect a huge room with tons of people, crazy booth displays and lines- bathroom lines, booze lines and at DragCon, makeup lines. After a 2-year hiatus, DragCon returned to the LA Convention center last weekend, and with it came 150 of the world’s most famous queens and 50,000 crazed fanatics who lost. their. shit. when RuPaul herself DJ’d the event.
I’ve always seen comparisons between drag and non-trad skateboarding. Both are special and unique communities that I’ve connected to, but beyond that, here’s some specifics. –Migz
WAYS DRAG IS LIKE NON-TRAD SKATEBOARDING
Non-stop quality entertainment.
History of trauma.
Low brow comedy.
Some find us triggering.
Relatively new mainstream acceptance.
Manila Luzon loved the Tanya vs. Torres centerfold. GAGGING!!
The feeling when you just won the quick drag recycling challenge and you're famished.
Sissy that walk anywhere!
Resting cute face.
Leather daddies for BIGFOOT.
Crazy nipple selection.
You could score yourself some nice kicks.
No bigger hassle than going through security in full drag.
Try to spot the Tangerine Margarita can in this colorfully costumed hand. Everyone was getting twisted on these!
Milk was serving up some sexy Big Bird vibes. And started skateboarding during the pandemic- see, celebrities- they're just like us!!
"Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent" make up the values on which contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race are judged by.
Interestingly, the C.U.N.T. technique is also what we use to judge skateboarding competition.
Lots of ring lights.
Kornbread brought fruit punch.
