RuPaul and Drag Race Queens Remember Their First Time

The Advocate asked the 14 new contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race season 6 about their first time in drag.



“It was August 3, 1990," Darienne Lake says after a feisty encounter with Courtney Act. "I made a fool of myself, but I had a great time and I’ve been scratching that drag itch ever since.”

“It’s so surreal. I can’t even believe I’m here," April Carrion says. "I can’t wait to share my talent, show what I’m all about, and share a different side of Puerto Rico — not just as a pageant queen, but something more fierce, something stronger.”
