“I don’t consider my style of drag old school, but it’s a reminder of the roots that started the gay history, the gay revolution, that allows every gay person to be here," Vivacious (center) says. "Because if it wasn’t for this look in New York City as the herald, we wouldn’t be moving forward all these years later. So I’m here to honor that memory.”

“My first time in drag I was 12 years old," Magnolia Crawford (left) adds. "I had water-balloon tits and I was gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. But, if I could go back give myself advice, I’d say, ‘Maybe just a bit more contouring.’”
