Finally after MONTHS of hard work, our little FABULOUS web series “The Queens of Drag: NYC” launches today on Gay.com. It’s been a crazy labor of love and the cast is amazing!
From the official press release: New original docu series focuses on the lives of New York City’s most fabulous and ferociously funny drag queen divas. Gay.com (www.gay.com), the world’s leading gay social networking site, has teamed up with film and television producer Larry Kennar (The L Word, Barbershop, 50 First Dates), designer and reality TV veteran Jack Mackenroth (Project Runway: Season 4), and award-winning producer/director John Rutherford (eXposed) to air the original web series The Queens of Drag: NYC. The 8-episode series, which explores the audacious New York drag scene, debuts exclusively on Gay.com on September 8, 2010.
“The fascinating part is how they all lead dual lives, both of which are incredibly challenging. Most people think of drag as glamorous, fun fluff. But it’s actually an underappreciated art form that requires an enormous amount of talents and guts. These queens are at the top of their game in the most competitive city in the world and each has a unique story to reveal underneath the wigs and makeup.”
Legendary drag diva Lady Bunny leads the all-star Queens of Drag: NYC cast, which includes the ageless and evergreen Hedda Lettuce, uber-glam Sherry Vine, the vivacious Bianca Del Rio, sexpot songstress Peppermint, and the classless and campy Mimi Imfurst. Breakout performers Epiphany, Logan Hardcore, Dallas DuBois, and Acid Betty join the divas for their outrageous adventures.
Each Queens of Drag: NYC webisode on Gay.com focuses on an individual diva as she navigates life as a drag superstar in the world’s most amazing and unforgiving city, New York. The series shows the real grit of the drag queens’ lives – both in and out of makeup – as they struggle to conquer the New York nightlife scene.
