What are you doing New Year’s Eve? Doing drag makeovers of course. A group of lgbtq folks and allies are coming over for a campy evening of makeup tutorials and makeovers. I will have cocktails and a tickle trunk of dress up items to complete the effect and yea, there will be lip synching … Stay tuned for a recap of the adventure.
While I frown heavily at the idea of straight people going out as Ms Jenner for Halloween, I am excited to pay tribute and celebrate one of the most vibrant parts of my community and to put the expert tips of you-tubers to good use. If drag techniques can transform true queens … I can’t wait to see what will happen to me. And perhaps round two will see us take on our Drag King personas.
