With the passing of some of all time favorite performers this year, Erica Andrews and Whitney Paige, as well as many others, we thought it would be interesting to pay tribute to the art of female impersonation by reviewing and doing tribute pieces to several National pageants. We’ve watched drag from afar for quite some time, attending national pageants, interviewing all of the contestants of RuPaul’s Drag Race, going to our favorite bars and watching our favorite queens perform, but we’ve only been observers. This year, we wanted to give back to world of drag by highlighting the beauty, sisterhood and true entertainment that comes from within…one of the greatest art forms of our time. In the following week leading up to the National Entertainer of the Year Pageant, we will be spotlighting some of our favorite former winners by posting our interviews with them. Please enjoy our interview with Erica Andrews from several years ago HERE!
Here are your contestants for National Entertainer of the Year 2013! (We borrowed the list from Carrie Fairfield…drag expert extraordinaire! Make sure to visit her amazing web site with everything drag…including forums HERE!)
