Season 8’s cast for “RuPaul’s Drag Race” was announced last night and as a tad bit obsessed fan of the show, I was super excited when I discovered that Derrick Barry was going to be a contestant this season!
My first introduction to Derrick Barry was his performance on “America’s Got Talent” I was blown away by his attention to detail and the very fine tuned impersonation of Britney Spears.
Drag Queens in general fascinate me. The incredible way some can change their appearance and create these completely different looks. Having many friends in the LGBT community, I’ve attended quite a few drag performances and when the show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” started 8 seasons ago my fascination has only grown.
With all that being said and all the excitement about the new season starting on March 7th, I decided to dress up as my favorite drag queen from this season, Miss Derrick Barry. I guess that makes me a Faux Queen in a sense.
