I changed my image from “punk drag” to “black hooker drag,” which was much more sexy. Rupaul’s autobiography is filled with choice quotes—a great read. discovered via Tagbanger

The La-La Girls
As a child attending the popular theater, Cashin was enchanted by “the la-la girls . . . the lights – the music – the color.” By the time she was a teen, her heart was set on becoming a chorus girl. Cashin auditioned to join a dance troupe, but at just over five feet tall, her hopes were dashed when she faced the line of long limbs doing high kicks.

Rather than start her dance routine, she exclaimed to the managers “I can’t do that, but I can draw,” and held out her sketchbook from the stage. She was hired on the spot as their costume designer. This selection of drawings is from the childhood portfolio that helped her secure her first “dream” job.
