What To Get the Drag Performer Who Is Everything

What is the perfect gift for a drag performer this holiday season? Wigs? Makeup? Tuck tape? At the World of Wonder holiday party, drag stars like Lady Bunny, Alyssa Edwards, Yara Sofia, Kelly Mantle, Landon Cider, and more revealed what they'd love to see in their stocking this December.

In the spirit of the season, the divas also offered advice for straight people on what not to give their gay friends (See "Gifting No-Nos for Gay Men" for more bad ideas.) See their responses below.

Will RuPaul's Drag Race ever have a drag king competitor?
I still feel hopeful! I still feel hopeful that there is a ball rolling. The opportunities are endless, and there’s a more inclusive idea of what drag is. By being invited here today and upcoming things that I am a part of, I think that it’s just a matter of time.

What should one give a drag performer for the holidays?
Stones. Rhinestones. A gift certificate to Nova in the downtown L.A. fashion district, because they have beautiful rhinestones.

Is there a gift that straight people should never give gay people?
Anything that’s assuming of their gender or what preference they like and a pronoun — that’s a big no-no for sure.
