Bob the Drag Queen. Doesn't sound too creative does it? Or does it sound a little "Crazy?"
A friend asked me if I had any interest in going over to Village Pub in Wilton Manors and see Bob the Drag Queen perform. Who the hell is that? Do I really want to spend a night on the drive waiting for a queen to show up late and then most likely see a sub par performance? I'm not a huge fan of drag performances since many don't stack up to some of the great ones I have seen. My friend assured me he was one of the best, but I declined. What a mistake that was.
Now, Bob the Drag Queen is on Season 8 of Ru Paul's Drag Race and he's my current favorite. Most of my friends who follow him are telling me, "you've ain't seen nothing yet." There's been a flash or two of his funny bone, but this may be a queen we want to see lip sync, not for her life, but for the entertainment value. Here's a taste of one of Bob's "Crazy" performances.
To learn more about Bob the Drag Queen, head over to GetOutMag.com and read an interview done by Eileen Shapiro last October. A couple of the questions from the interview were:
When you were growing up did you ever aspire to be a drag queen?
A drag queen? NO! My mom used to own a gay bar when I was growing up. She had a friend named Sydney, and Sydney once got shot by a drag queen. Yeah, a drag queen shot him, and I was terrified of drag queens! He always told me that drag queens were crazy, don’t trust drag queens, so I never thought I would be one of those gun-wielding drag queens that shoot people!
Have you shot anyone recently?
Not today. – GetOutMag.com
