Who says being fabulous can’t draw a paycheck? Here are just four of the most famous drag queens currently strutting their stuff on theater stages and television sets.
RuPaul is the host of RuPaul’s Drag Race, a long-running series devoted to finding what he calls “America’s next drag superstar.” There have been almost 100 episodes, so he hasn’t found them yet, but the ride sure has been fun so far.
An actor, dancer and celebrity judge on Strictly Come Dancing, Horwood is one of the most famous drag queens to ever come out of the UK. He’s especially known for his sharp tongue, telling many contestants like it is on Strictly when they don’t measure up.
In addition to being a drag queen herself, Detox also has a drag daughter, Vicky Vox, and the two of them often perform together as a mother/daughter duo. They’ve been in everything from music videos to theater productions, so you definitely haven’t seen the last of them.
4. Pandora Boxx
Pandora Boxx was one of the earliest contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race. His career has really taken off since then, netting him ads, sponsorships, comedy routines and other reality shows all revolving around his proud and unashamed status as one of America’s most glamorous drag queens.
These are just four famous drag queens that are currently rising through the ranks. Keep an eye on them! They’re going far!
