the dynamics of drag families

RUBY ROO’S “DRAG SERGEANTS” Mocha Lite & Misty Meaner

IN A MORE EDUCATED WORLD, DRAG FAMILIES ARE BUILT MORE ON MUTUAL RESPECT AND LOVE THAN ON NECESSITY.

n the 80s, it was much more common for queer folks—many of whom lacked support from their biological families—to form chosen families of friends and role models. These families were especially prevalent within the drag and ballroom scenes. Both thrived because the older members would mentor and mother their children, forming a network to improve their professional and personal pursuits. “In the early 80s and 90s joining a house was a much-needed tool for survival and acceptance amid a storm of social stigma, AIDS, lack of governmentfunded programs, and the overwhelming amount of homeless LGBT youth of black identity,” says Yusef X, a promoter and member of the House of Xtravaganza. “Nowadays, in a world much more accepting and educated on LGBT issues, becoming part of a house for some might be about finding a stage for the open exploration of unique forms of artistic expression.” Similarly, drag families often organize themselves into houses for their collective benefit, though current drag

mother/daughter relationships tend to be more one-on-one mentorships that start when an experienced queen agrees to paint a new queen for the first time. In a ballroom house, members are expected to treat their mothers and fathers as royalty. As Yusef X puts it, “They are held in high respect because of their position and influence over their respective houses and that of the general community.” That said, New York’s Sir Honey Davenport describes her family’s relationships as “nothing but your good old drag best friend.” Drag couple and burlesque performers Misty Meaner and Mocha Lite share a similar relationship to performer Ruby Roo. While most would label Roo as their daughter, Misty explains,“We don’t have a mother/daughter relationship. We just hold it over each other. Well, I guess that is a mother/daughter relationship, but I see

Ruby as my sister at this point.” Misty also says that she identifies with the term“drag sergeant” more than “drag mother.” The initiation of these parenting relationships varies almost as much as the styles and career paths of those who have them. Yusef X, who moved to New York from Miami in 1999, met his mother, Carmen X, during a night out with mutual friends. “She was done in a sick vampire/succubus number and I was floored. It was love at first sight! A month later, after a few rendezvous with the gang, I received a call. On the other end of the line was Carmen Xtravaganza, Hector X—my Father— Jose X—House Father—and Martin X. They christened me an Xtravaganza and I have proudly worn the ‘X’ ever since.” Sir Honey Davenport, who started dabbling in drag after touring as a dancer

She just kinda got stuck with me! But I tell her like I tell the trade: fuck with me, you stuck with me!” After a photo shoot with Mocha Lite

and Misty Meaner, Ruby Roo told the pair that she was interested in drag and wanted to learn from them. “Misty and Mocha only painted my face one time,” she recalls. “The next day when I went over to get into drag with them, they said, ‘We’re not doing it. Watch us and do it yourself.’” While these mother/daughter/father/son relationships revolve around love and mutual respect, parents are not always exempt from the occasional read from their offspring. “The only downside to being Misty’s drag daughter,” Roo chuckles, “is that she never lost the baby weight.” Clearly, Ruby gets her wit from the Meaner side of the family.

DRAG AUSTIC QU ONLY HALF THIS C HEY WERE S I D E, T It’s just before 10am in Las Vegas and Bianca Del Rio is still a bit dazed from the events of the night before when she was crowned the winner of the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.“I haven’t even looked at Facebook,” she says.“I have 340-something text messages I haven’t even looked at. I’m sure 300 are from my mother!” Before she can get to any of that, she’s looking at a long morning of interviews on top of a long day in drag the day before—not to mention the previous three months of anticipation and speculation, and the months of filming before that during which she spent the majority of her 12- to 14-hour days in drag: full face, wig, shaved for the gods, every day. But, as Bianca— a.k.a. New Orleans-born Roy Haylock—points out, that’s what she signed up for when she applied to be on Logo’s flagship drag competition show. She knew what she was getting into. And last night, it all paid off.

“DUH,

H E STOLE T H E WHOLE

SHOW.”

MAY 30, 2014 11


“‘Why does Bianca always have a pillow on her lap in Untucked?’ It kept me from getting up and killing them!”

SPECULATION ABOUT MS. Del Rio’s odds on Drag Race started long before the show’s sixth season even began. It was an open secret here in New York last summer that she was in Los Angeles filming the show, and from day one the consensus seemed to be that Bianca would either be the first queen to be voted off or she would win the whole damn thing. She would either be too caustic to last or she would literally slay every other contestant on Ru’s runway. Any middle ground was simply inconceivable. For one thing, despite all her undeniable notoriety and talent, Bianca Del Rio just didn’t really seem like the type of queen who would even do Drag Race, let alone win it. A lot of wellestablished New York queens seem to have a certain attitude about doing the show. They don’t want to risk diluting their brand by becoming just another Drag Race contestant. But, Del Rio says, that wasn’t necessarily what kept her from trying out in years past. “I was in this moment in my life where I thought the show was only for a certain type of queen. For years I’d assumed that you had to be a lip-synch queen, you had to be 20 years old. And everybody I know wanted to be on the show. Everybody auditioned endlessly. So that kind of turned me off. I’m one of

those people that if everybody likes Glee, I fucking hate it—just cause everybody likes it!” What changed her mind was a backstage encounter with Drag Race alums Willam and Sharon Needles at one of promoter Brandon Voss’ premiere parties.“They were assholes,” she says. “You can quote me, because they were douches! They were very cunty and questioning why I was there. Who was I? I was nobody, because they were on the show. I thought, ‘What do you got to lose? If anything [do it] just to piss off those two ugly bitches.’ And now they’re my best friends! Now we’re ‘sisters’.” That take-no-prisoners, suffer-nofools frankness has always been Del Rio’s hallmark. It’s her persona, her shtick. She’s an insult comic and one of the sharpest, quickest witted queens you’ll ever meet. She’s also not to be trifled with, as anyone who has ever crossed her can attest. The first time I ever encountered Del Rio, years before we ever met properly, she jumped in front of me in line for the bathroom at Posh. When I gave her a taste of my 20something attitude on her way out she slammed that bathroom door on me—then threw it open and slammed it shut again, and again, and again, while laughing maniacally. Thinking back it sounds empirically hilarious,

but at the time I didn’t know whether to laugh or call 911. That’s the Bianca that many of us New York gays were worried wouldn’t make it past episode one without slapping a bitch. “I think you’re judged by what you put out there,” she admits. “I’ve done drag for 18 years, and every YouTube video, every moment you come into a bar and see what I do—that’s all that I’ve done. So they’re judging me by what I’ve put out there. And I accept full responsibility for all of that. But, you know, there was never a camera following me around in my everyday life.” What the Drag Race cameras captured wasn’t the fire-breathing über bitch many of us might have expected to see, but a level-headed, quick-witted, compassionate team player who defied expectations by actually taking a few of the younger competitors under her wing at times. This was the Bianca Del Rio that her friends knew, the queen that Advocate contributing editor Brandon Voss calls a “bitch with a heart of gold lamé.” “I grew up in New Orleans with Roy, and I was there, working with her on the drag musical Pageant, the first time he did drag. Duh, he stole the whole show, and I wasn’t surprised to see his drag star rise from there,” Voss says.

Daniel Nardicio, who also knew Del Rio from New Orleans, helped that star’s ascent when she relocated to New York after Hurricane Katrina. “I found her and I told her,‘I have to work with you.’ And we’ve done crazy TV projects, radio and even road trips, which were filmed. Bianca has been the ultimate professional, a joy to be around and always hilarious.” “If Drag Race is a showcase for phenomenal talent which, like Ru, can break out into the mainstream, then Bianca was the obvious pick,” says drag legend Lady Bunny. “For years, the bitch worked five nights a week and a day job. She worked hard for her success and deserves it.” “It is kinda surreal to watch it,” Del Rio says of the way the show depicted her. “When people say, ‘Oh, you’re showing your softer side!’Not really. I’m just being me and doing what I’m doing. I’m not an asshole all day! But I’m grateful that the show could show that.” Still, she admits that there were times when the other contestants tried her patience. “Someone pointed out, because people dissect the show:‘Why

does Bianca always have a pillow on her lap in Untucked?’ It kept me from getting up and killing them! I constantly felt like I was at the DMV or on a bus, you know, where you’re like, ‘I would not choose to be with these people, but let’s just get to where we gotta fucking go and get off!’”

DEL RIO IS QUICK TO POINT OUT THAT, when Drag Race’s season six finale aired on May 19, she and her fellow finalists Adore Delano and Courtney Act didn’t know which of them would ultimately be dubbed “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” The show’s finale is filmed before a live audience, but airs months later. Consequently, three different endings are filmed, and no one—not the queens or the audience—knows which is the real one until the show airs.“We weren’t privy to any of that information in advance,” Del Rio says. “We’re not prepped, we’re not told [anything]. The three of us are sitting there together watching all of it as America’s watching it. Which was kind of overwhelming mentally.” Meanwhile, for many of us watching at home, there was never a question: Having seen the whole season,

Bianca Del Rio was the clear frontrunner. It was all over Facebook and Twitter (#TeamBianca). But Del Rio says, while she was aware of all that, she tried not to let it get to her. “I think that as a viewer, everybody’s confident and thinking they know what’s going on, but for us, you know, it is this roller coaster of thoughts and emotions and views. And of course, it’s always Ru’s decision. She’s a bad bitch, ’cause she can say and do whatever she wants!” she says with a laugh. “You don’t know!” Actually, sometimes you do know.

WITH THE FINALE AND THE DRAG RACE experience in general behind her, Del Rio says she’s ready to get back to her real life: back to New York, back to the shows she hosts around the city each week. There are also several projects she’s got in the works. There’s the stand-up special she’ll be performing this fall. There’s also Hurricane Bianca, the independent film she’s been working on with director Matt Kugelman. But after spending so much time in drag over the past year, shouldn’t she be taking her $100,000 winnings on vacation? “I don’t do well on vacations,” she says. “I’m the type of person where it sounds magical to go to a beach, but then once I’m there for two minutes it’s like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’” N

TRANsGeNdeR FIcTION:

NEVADA by Imogen Binnie This dark comedy tells the story of a young transwoman named Maria living in NewYork who tries to stay punk while working her soul-sucking retail job. A betrayal by her girlfriend sets Maria on a life-changing journey. Valencia author Michelle Tea said that Nevada is“everything—personal, political, funny, raw, hyper-brainy, and down to earth. I want to stay in Maria’s brain forever as she rides her bike through the streets of Brooklyn, doggedly hashing out her existence with humor and befuddled honesty.” GAY GeNeRAL FIcTION:

AN HONEST GHOST by Rick Whitaker In this novel, a former lawyer has moved to Paris to indulge in a hedonistic life and has become “interested only in reading and writing and anonymous sex.” His life of pleasure is disrupted when his son shows up on his doorstep, demanding his attention and love. This heady novel, which is entirely composed of sentences from other literary works, flawlessly mimics our internal dialogue and the endless justifications we make for our actions.

THE RED SHOES by John Stewart Wynne Wynne takes the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale—already pretty messed up to begin with—and gives it a dark, queer spin, setting the story in contemporary NewYork.When grieving protagonist John Laith saves a young rape victim, the man’s gift of a pair of red shoes puts Laith on a precarious path into New York’s most glamorous and seedy corners.

SOUND CHECK

BOYS OF THE BALL THE SPECTRUM OF AMAZING ACTS AT THE GOVERNORS BALL MUSIC FESTIVAL HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERY KIND OF GAY.

oachella may have come and gone, taking neon-shade-wearing bros and girls in flowerheadresses with it, but festival season is just getting started. New Yorkers don’t have to travel to the U.K. for Glastonbury or Tennessee for Bonnaroo. One of the best festivals of the summer is happening right in our backyard. The Governors Ball Music Festival plays host to some of music’s most exciting acts, including a few that are especially relevant for queers. Where will you find your favorite gays—the art fags, the raver boys, the indie snobs, and the gay bros? We’ve got a comprehensive gay guide to Governors Ball that breaks it down for you. —MD

C

FINd “GAY BROs” AT

Outkast

Friday, June 6 Sure, we all played “Hey Ya” from the speakers of our parents’ car at some point, but what is with this revisionist history that Outkast was actually important music? Outkast should have stayed in that dead period of culture that was the early aughts. The only gays that will be flocking to their set are the gay bros—you know, the guys who are only looking for “str8 acting masc bros” on

Grindr. If you want to “shake it like a Polaroid picture” against a dude in a neon tank top with an ironic slogan on it, have at it, but you will be judged. FINd “cYBeR ART FAGs” AT

Grimes

Friday, June 6 This subsection may need a little explanation, because the cyber art fag is a bit different from your run-of-the-mill art fag. While the latter likes psychedelic drugs and orgies, the former likes locking himself in his room to reblog pictures of people doing psychedelic drugs and participating in orgies on tumblr. These internet babes, wearing the latest streetwear looks you won’t even know exist until two years after they’re out of style, will beeline it to see cyber witch queen Grimes, who we hope will be playing some new music. The last time Grimes had a New York show it was cancelled by Hurricane Sandy, so this return is especially exciting. FINd “ALT ROcKeR GAYs” AT

Jack White

Saturday, June 7 The boys who would sooner die than be caught listening to

Madonna will flock to the former White Stripes frontman’s show. That’s not to say that Jack White doesn’t transcend genre. Blunderbuss was brilliant and almost universally lauded, so this is sure to be one of the more packed sets. But there will be plenty of boys in stovepipe jeans and cowboy boots with long hair and names like “Dusk” bobbing their heads nonchalantly to White’s moody tunes. Just be careful because it’s almost impossible to differentiate these boys from their straight counterparts. Come to think of it, the gay ones are usually more butch. FINd “LITeRALLY eVeRYONe” AT

Disclosure

Saturday, June 7 It doesn’t matter what type of gay you are; if you like to dance and you have any semblance of musical taste, you will see Disclosure’s set. These boys—yes, boys: the English brothers are both under 25—are making some of the most innovative and exciting dance music around. They’ve worked with an impressive roster of big names—Mary J. Blige, Lorde, AlunaGeorge—so keep your fingers crossed for a guest appearance or two! N

BAR CRAWL

STAR T

SISSY THAT CRAWL! BROOKLYN QUEEN CHER NOBLE’S FRIDAY NIGHT STARTS IN THE EAST VILLAGE AND ENDS WITH A BROOKLYN SUNRISE.

NOW SISSY THL!AT CRAW DEMANDA’S PROP AND

or a Friday night bar crawl, Cher Noble’s goal is simple: “Check out a variety of places, see some friends, have some drinks, and if all goes well, I’d be literally crawling by the end of the night—or maybe even sooner.” —MD

F

COSTUME EMPORIUM

27th St (btwn Broadway/Sixth Ave). “I start the night at the apartment of crawling queen, Demanda Darling. It’s a cozy place that appears to have been decorated by Quentin Crisp and Pee-wee Herman. Demanda admits that it’s not for everyone, but I think it is heavenly. As we sip beers and listen to show tunes, Demanda will put on that evening’s look. After a few drinks, sing-alongs and a little dancing, we’ll receive our sign that it’s time to hit up the first bar: the super [loud] banging on the door and yelling about the noise. Let’s call a car.”

THE PYRAMID CLUB STAIRS

BIZARRE 12 Jefferson St (btwn Broadway/Bushwick Ave) Bushwick, bizarrebushwick.com. “The last ‘official’ stop of the night is Jessamess’ monthly party, White Diamonds, a champagne dance party featuring some amazing Brooklyn drag queens and DJs. The upstairs houses the stage for performances with a DJ booth overlooking the dance floor. The downstairs is the perfect basement dance party: a dark room with plenty of lasers and lights with another DJ booth. While you’re here, don’t forget to try out one of their many absinthe cocktails!”

192 E Second St (btwn Aves A/B), stairsbar.com. “Stairs is just a short walk away, a perfect way to save a few bucks on a cab so you can get that extra drink. Every Friday night is Grayson Squire’s party, Supernature, with a new DJ and a couple killer performers every week. The party takes place in the downstairs section of the bar in a room with seating all around the outside walls. The performances take place in the middle of the room, which makes this one of the best places to get a truly intimate experience with your favorite queens.”

101 Ave A (btwn Sixth/Seventh Aves), thepyramidclub.com. “The Pyramid Club has a rich history from the 1980s gay scene, when it was frequented by RuPaul, Lady Bunny, and Lypsinka. It has two floors and the crowd is the perfect mix. But my favorite was the man I once spotted dressed as The Joker—but Jewish. I can be found performing here the last Friday of every month at Trey LaTrash’s party, Touched by an Alien, where you can find outof-this-world performers, hosts, and DJs.”

HAPPYFUN HIDEAWAY 1211 Myrtle Ave (btwn Bushwick Ave/Charles Pl) Bushwick, facebook.com/happyfunhideaway. “This is one of my favorite places to go in Brooklyn. Like really, there is nothing I don’t love about Happyfun Hideaway. There is a back patio for those long summer nights, some of my favorite Brooklyn queens work behind the bar, there is almost always one of your favorite movies playing on the projector, the whole place is decorated like a beach bum’s wet dream, and if that wasn’t good enough, they serve some of the best bar food I’ve ever had and it’s all vegetarian.”

AFTER HOURS FIN ISH

28 MAY 30, 2014

“We have somehow made it to 4am and are shockingly still able to walk. Thankfully no one is ever ready to throw in the towel so soon, so make your way to your nearest friend’s house for a few last drinks and chitchat. Bonus points for a beautiful rooftop sunrise moment.”
