Snow Daze

I’m trekking to Minnesota, land of my birth, at Christmastime.

Although I visit fairly often, I’ve never done drag there.  And now would not be a good time to start.   The state was just hit with a massive snowstorm, making strutting in heels extremely challenging.

How on Earth does the local drag populace manage to cope?  MN’s queenly headquarters is the Gay 90s—the Midwest’s biggest gay club!—with a showbiz alumni that includes porn director Chi Chi LaRue and Bebe Zahara Benet, winner of the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

I guess my MinneSNOWta sistahs either have to haul around all their apparel and get ready at their destinations, or else forge through the sleet and slush in full drag.  Such a stunning look—snow boots and a sparkly gown.

Thank goodness it doesn’t snow much in NYC.   I don’t own any practical snow boots and neither does any other drag queen I know.  Behold this classic photo I snapped of my pal Anna Conda:

Shortly after, Anna slipped on ice and cracked her skull.  R.I.P.

Kidding!  Nowadays she’s a fierce activist in San Francisco, where she never has to worry about stomping in the snow!
