Is This Spoof Always Ad With Drag Queens Transphobic — Or Revolutionary?

Men aren’t usually in commercials for period products. But this spoof ad — which Proctor & Gamble denied via Twitter is affiliated with Always — has lots of them. Men in bright red lipstick, men in bustiers, men with beehive hairdos that would put Amy Winehouse to shame. The spoof stars drag queens and lots of ‘em; each one is boo-hooing like a three-year-old girl because he’s got man parts down south. “There are some people who would just love to have a period,” the subtitling reads. “Let alone a happy one.” I, a person not usually known for her love of advertisements, think the commercial is actually pretty revolutionary. I mean, drag queens? In a commercial? And it’s not the Super Bowl and they’re not being mocked?

Other bloggers did not quite agree with me, calling the commercial “transphobic.” Keep reading »

ABC’s New Comedy, “Work It,” Puts Straight Guys In Drag

You know what’s really funny, guys? Putting men in women’s clothes! Haw, haw, haw, haw, haw! Thus is the premise of ABC’s new comedy, “Work It,” about two men who can’t get hired for any jobs because women are better educated, so they don wigs, skirts, and makeup. What follows is a comedy of errors about men, dressed as women, learning the high-heeled and Cosmopolitan-soaked ropes of woman-dom.

James Franco Gets Dolled Up In Drag

Oh, that James Franco. Always up to something new and wacky! This time the performance artist/actor/all-around hottie is in drag on the cover of Candy magazine. The lovely photo was taken by Terry Richardson. What a “trans-formation,” indeed. He’s a little Angelica Houston, a little Jackie Beat. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Miss Gay Brazil Gets Her Wig Snatched


Oh, no she di’-n’t! After being crowned Miss Gay Brazil 2009, Ava Simões got her wig snatched clean off her head by a fellow PO’d contestant! And her tiara, too! Talk about a sore drag queen loser. If that had happened to me, I know I would’ve cut a fellow contestant. You do not grab my wig and run. Or, you know, I would have at least beat her with my stiletto. Dios mio! Drama ensues.

We Will Rock You: Actual Killer Queens Dance To Queen Medley


From the Filipino prisoners who brought you the Michael Jackson “Thriller” tribute dance comes a Queen medley. This one has some actual killer Queens — fabulous transsexuals — in tutus doing “I Want To Break Free” and Freddie Mercury (R.I.P) some serious justice. Sure, being incarcerated and forced to wear the most hideous shade of orange might be a drag, but these cons know how to shake it like the pros. FYI: The jazz hands start at the 50-second mark.

London Fashion Scene Invaded By Drag Queens

Girl, the drag queens are coming! On Sunday, Sept. 6, while New York fashion editors will undoubtedly be laying out their neat little wardrobes for the coming Fashion Week, those in London will be slipping into sequin gowns and lamé hammer pants. It’s Bistrotheque’s Annual Drag Ball at Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House! The evening includes such performance categories as “International Diva in a Leading Role,” “London Fashionista at the Opera,” and “Pushy Mother with Kids at a Ballet Audition.” (Priceless.) And with a panel of judges that reads like a who’s who of the Brit style scene—Love magazine’s Katie Grand, designers Henry Holland and Roksanda Ilincic, to name a few—the competition is sure to be fierce.

RuPaul’s Drag Race: You Betta Work!

Last night, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” premiered on LOGO and since then I’ve been strutting around my apartment trying to impersonate female impersonators. Those girls have got it going on! When the contestants were all hosed down washing cars for their first photo shoot, not one of those hos lost their makeup. While I get runny mascara if I just break a sweat, the drenched drag stars were still flawless! How do they do it?! (See video above) The contestants are full of surprises, just like the show. Although there is one particular casting that stood out — Santino Rice from “Project Runway” is a judge. Sadly, he’s total d-bag as a panelist. Bummer. I liked him better when he was impersonating the gentleman judge, Tim Gunn. But RuPaul has been lifted up to where she belongs, as the mother hen of how to work it! She advises the glitterati as a man, but then snaps into her persona once they’re all gussied up. Her delivery is as strikingly seductive as her look. Glowing in soft light and blonde curls, Ru looked straight into the camera as she said to the two contestants facing elimination: “Lip sync — for your life!” All hail the Queen! Keep reading »

Project Runway: What A Drag!

Designs We Hated [From Left]: Jerell’s Glittery Green Number; Daniel’s Sorbet Meltdown; Keith’s Filthy Howard the Duck Thing (Like Nina Garcia said, it is quite a puzzle)

On this week’s episode the designers were challenged to create an outfit for drag queens. Although this was a new challenge, not a recycle bin rescue from a previous season, I wasn’t really excited to watch it. I had a hard time figuring out why I should care.The best part of Runway for me is the fashion and this time it wasn’t fashion, but theatrics. And not haute couture theatrics that must convey a fashion aesthetic and drama. I get that the queens each have a character and their costumes must portray that character, but we learned very little about who these gals are. Sure, each of them had a catch phrase and a cool name, but there has to be more. I would have loved to learn how the queens get into drag because as guest judge RuPaul explained, “Drag is all smoke and mirrors.” But all we learned was that they stuff their bras, duh, and they must hide the “candy” (that is exactly what you think it is).
