Ode to a Drag Queen
It’s fair to say that I’ve not encountered many drag queens on my travels. That’s not to say I wouldn’t have welcomed the occasion, but the only time that springs to mind is when working on a TV show, where two of the contributors were drag queens. However, seeing the meticulous assembly of the outfit and make-up, bearing witness to the pageantry as it was painstakingly applied, took some of the shine off of the majesty of it all. And so that was my only brush with a queen, until Darren + Sean’s wedding…
Much had been promised about their evening reception, talk of drag queen bingo and ‘a few games’ was mooted at, but seeing as what was to come was a surprise to all there (myself and Mickey included), it’s no wonder that it was being played down and covered up.
