I discovered RuPaul’s Drag Race on a day that I really needed it: a hungover Thursday morning. After hours of watching Season 5, I realized how much talent a drag queen must have if she is to reign: she has to sing, dance, act, and be charismatic and funny AF.
I spoke with one such insanely talented drag queen, Miz Jade, at Macri Park Bar in Brooklyn. She told me a little bit about what it takes, and we talked about the current state of the Drag Queen Economy. Have a listen.
