Dragcon 2017 was this past weekend at the Jacob Javitz Center in NYC. Two full days of color, sparkle, & all things DRAG! Started by RuPaul, considered to be the most commercially successful drag queen of all time, this convention has garnered massive fandom. From fans of the Emmy award winning show, Rupaul's Drag Race to fans of Drag itself. People of all ages, genders, backgrounds were there united in their love for Momma Ru.
Those of us who have become addicts of RuPaul's Drag Race came to see all the queens we've grown to love over our TV sets (or phone screens or laptop screens... you get the picture!). While my personal favorites (which give me LIFEEE) were unfortunately touring, there were a few that made my knees buckle & my heart race! These queens are just that... QUEENS! They're gorgeous, so well put together, & make me feel like I could learn quite a few things from them!
While the convention itself was overwhelmingly crowded, it was so great to see these talented artists in person. There is something about the exchange of energy you have one on one that either makes you love them even more or makes you roll your eyes & say NO THANKS! All tea, all shade, Hunties!
