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.



“I feel like I am one deep down inside, but I can’t compete with these queens," Kelly Osbourne says. "You’ve got to have more than respect for drag queens because they get up every single day, face a world where many people call them freaks, and they are still the beautiful women they were born to be. I love watching their bravery.”

“My very first time in drag I didn’t perform, I just did it to go out and have a wonderful time," Gia Gunn says. "I remember I felt fishy, I felt c*nt, and it just stuck.”

“Never rush anything," Gunn adds as advice to green drag queens. "With drag, it takes time, it takes practice, it takes dedication. So please take the time and dedication and save us all from the dreadfulness of you not doing your homework.”
