Favorite Drag Queens Quotes

1. "I've seen some very beautiful drag queens."
Author: Bebe Neuwirth
2. "Watching Paris is Burning, I began to think that the many yuppie-looking, straight -acting, pushy, predominantly white folks in the audience were there because the film in no way interrogates "whiteness." These folks left the film saying it was "amazing," "marvellous," incredibly funny," worthy of statements like, "Didn't you just love it?" And no, I didn't love it. For in many ways the film was a graphic documentary portrait of the way in which colonized black people (in this case black gay brothers, some of whom were drag queens) worship at the throne of whiteness, even when such worship demands that we live in perpetual self-hate, steal, go hungry, and even die in its pursuit. The "we" evoked here is all of us, black people/people of color, who are daily bombarded by a powerful colonizing whiteness that seduces us away from ourselves, that negates that there is beauty to be found in any form of blackness that is not imitation whiteness."
Author: Bell Hooks
3. "Every corner of the sky awkwardly showed up wearing the exact same thing, a moody gray dress accessorized with flat clouds. If North, South, East, and West were drag queens, this would be bad, very bad."
Author: Edmond Manning
4. "In the past, when gays were very flamboyant as drag queens or as leather queens or whatever, that just amused people. And most of the people that come and watch the gay Halloween parade, where all those excesses are on display, those are straight families, and they think it's funny. But what people don't think is so funny is when two middle-aged lawyers who are married to each other move in next door to you and your wife and they have adopted a Korean girl and they want to send her to school with your children and they want to socialize with you and share a drink over the backyard fence. That creeps people out, especially Christians. So, I don't think gay marriage is a conservative issue. I think it's a radical issue."
Author: Edmund White
5. "If I had a dollar for every time a random woman walked up to me and tried to seduce me, I'd have 50 cents. That's assuming drag queens are half price."
Author: Jarod Kintz
6. "Hair extensions and wigs are not the same thing. Wigs are for old ladies and drag queens. Extensions are for women who want longer hair. To be safe, never bring it up if you think a woman is wearing either. No good comes of it."
Author: Jennifer Coolidge
7. "There's a strange lack of knowledge about the role of drag queens in our culture. I attribute this to the appalling state of our country's education system. Others might blame an utter lack of interest. Who am I to judge?"
Author: Josh Kilmer Purcell
8. "Some actors wear their roles like clothing," he said. "No matter what part they're playing, you can always easily see who it is beneath the costume.""It's how drag queens do women, darling," volunteered the elegant Miss X.[...]"The really amazing actors strip themselves down to nothing-they make themselves a blank slate, and you can never guess what they're going to look like or act like in their next film because they completely transform themselves.""It's how transsexuals do women, darling," opined Doris Fish with an arched eyebrow in my direction."
Author: Kate Bornstein
9. "Day drag." Ashley answered simply. "The sun turns vampires into dust and drag queens into this." He motioned with his hand down his body."
Author: Kyle Adams
10. "I want to be so famous that drag queens will dress like me in parades when I'm dead."
Author: Laura Kightlinger
11. "At 13, when I was a runaway, I was taken in by the most amazing drag queens in Portland, Ore. We didn't always know where our next meal was coming from, but there was so much camaraderie and love. Not to mention, those girls could paint a face, and I learned how because of them."
Author: Rose McGowan
12. "I love drag queens... they perform me better than I ever could myself."
Author: Taylor Dane
13. "This requires a level of delusion/egomania usually reserved for popes and drag queens"
Author: Tina Fey
14. "Trying to Enjoy It (Proceed as if You Look Awesome)...This requires a level of delusion/egomania usually reserved for popes and drag queens, but you can do it. It's like being a little kid again, parading around in a nightgown tucked into your underpants, believing it looks terrific. Your "right mind" knows that you look ridiculous in a half-open dress and giant shoes, but you must put yourself back in third grade, slipping on your mom's quilted caftan and drinking cream soda out of a champagne glass while watching The Love Boat. You have never been more glamorous."
Author: Tina Fey
15. "When the war has lasted twenty years...the dragonets will come.When the land is soaked in blood and tears...the dragonets will come.Find the SeaWing egg of deepest blue.Wings of night shall come to you.The largest egg in mountain highwill give to you the wings of sky.For wings of earth, search through the mudfor an egg the color of dragon blood.And hidden alone from the rival queens,the SandWing egg awaits unseen.Of three queens who blister and blaze and burn,two shall die and one shall learnif she bows to a fate that is stronger and higher,she'll have the power of wings of fire.Five eggs to hatch on brightest night,five dragons born to end the fight.Darkness will rise to bring the light.The dragonets are coming...."

Today's Quote

The people of today have no nobility. They do not even know what it means to be noble of heart. There is no strength of character; there is only emotion. We live in a worldwide society of emotion-based actions, emotion-based thinking, emotion-based words. People do things because they feel like it, they think things ruled by their emotions to think it and they say things because in that moment it's what they are feeling. Character does, thinks and says from a place of core identity and truth. "This is my truth, thus I will do it, think it, speak it." Nobility means strength of character, a word of honor, immovability and mind over matter. The feelings and emotions of a noble person do not merely come and go with the tides; they are there in the first place because they wouldn't have been there if it were not already decided upon. That is nobility."
