Help Three RVA Queens Get on Ru Paul’s Drag Race Season 7
Ru Paul’s Drag Race has opened the flood gates for drag queens around the world to get their chance in the national spot light.
This year, three lovely ladies from RVA are in the top 100 and voting is still open. We asked each queen a few questions and got some insight into why they should be the next voter-approved Drag Race Diva.
Ms. Livigne has been doing drag for six years (as of this month) she’s graced the cover of GayRVA’s last print issue, and tore up stages from Babe’s, to Nu, to everywhere in between. Livigne said she thinks Drag Race would be a great challenge for her, and the girl loves challenges. “It’s a new way to push myself to become something I didn’t know I could be,” she said. “Plus, I’m a badass bitch!”
Livigne said she should be on Drag Race because the world needs to see her infamous dreadlock wig, and she’s got ”untouchable energy that no one can dare to compete with.”
She said she’d represent RVA the best because her and this city have a life-long connection. “We’re both one ina million, and you never know what you’re going to get.” She said she’d probably also wear something from Rumors.
One of Richmond’s most beloved queens, Millenium has been doing drag for 15 years, and the girl knows she’s got plenty more years in her. She said her versatility would make her a great contestant on Drag Race; that and her love of Beyonce.
Millenium said she’s got enough talent to go around, and it’s a shame to keep it all pent up here in VA. ”I sew, dance, act, and have been practicing my singing voice,” she said. “And what a Birthday Gift would that be seeing how today is my Birthday!” (Happy Birthday Grrl!)
With so much love for Richmond, Millenium said she would represent our fair city with the upmost dignity and respect. “If they would only give us a chance to show off our talents, we could prove that,” she said. “I would definitely represent RVA Whole-Heartedly!”
Aww shit, bad bitch coming through. I’m almost afraid to not vote for the lovely and always daring Ms. Sharon Husbands. With almost seven years of drag under her belt, she’s a force to be reckoned with for sure.
Husbands said she wants to be on the the show to support the bigger girls in the drag scene. “I have had a lot of people tell me I have inspired them or touched their lives,” she said. “And now it’s time to pay it forward on a grander scale.”
But there’s more to Husbands than just the ability to be a bad ass, her recent weight loss, over 100 lbs, adds a dimension to this queen. ”I feel like I have a story to tell, who I am… where I came from,” she said. “I want to shed light on being who you are and loving who you want!”
A big fan of RVA and the drag scene here, Husbands wants to go out and win Drag Race for the city she loves. “We have the MOST appreciative support system and fans who always show us great admiration. I want to do it for THEM!”
“I think that if any of us from Richmond made it, we would be doing it a great service,” she said. “We are all on the same showcasts and all good friends. I would probably have to ask Millenium to help me with the sewing challenge and Michelle for some great choreography…. and if anyone came at us… I could always open the library!”
Head on over to the Ru Paul’s Drag Race voting site and cast your support for one or all of the lovely ladies from RVA. Lawd knows they’ve earned it!
