A Drag Queen Christmas

When: Wed., Dec. 19, 8 p.m. 2018

After a decade on television, the reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race is going stronger than ever. From its many spinoffs to various national tours, RPDR is a franchise with a steady-growing audience. On Wednesday, A Drag Queen Christmas: The Naughty Tour takes over the Aztec Theatre for an evening of reads, lip-syncs and death drops. Presented by Peter and Murray and hosted by season 10 contestant Miz Cracker, A Drag Queen Christmas brings together six RPDR fan favorites who will jingle your balls and spread holiday cheer. Latrice Royale: Known to be “large and in charge,” and “chunky but funky,” Latrice “mutha fuckin’” Royale always brings down the house with her electrifying stage presence and Beyonce-inspired dance moves. Farrah Moan: Native Texan Farrah Moan describes her look as a cross between fetish, old-school Hollywood and retro glam. As for her name, it’s a combination of the drag star’s 1970s idol, Farrah Fawcett, and the word “moan” — because she’s admittedly “a whore.” Vanessa “Miss Vangie” Mateo: The first queen eliminated from RPDR season 10, Vanessa Mateo made a name for herself when she uttered the now infamous phrase-turned viral meme, “Miss Vangie,” and walked backwards as she left the stage. Monét X Change: Brooklyn native Monét X Change ultimately came in sixth on RPDR season 10 after impressing the judges with her wildly creative sponge dresses. She is the co-host of the podcast Sibling Rivalry with her drag sister Bob the Drag Queen and host of the internet series Monét’s Herstory X Change. Aja: Not only did the gender-fluid performer Aja drop out of high school to become a drag queen, she was also the youngest contestant on RPDR season nine. In July, Aja announced to them. magazine that they now prefer the term “queer artist.” Thorgy Thor: Brooklyn queen Thorgy Thor is mostly known for competing on season eight of RPDR, but she is also an accomplished musician who’s performed at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center. She once famously stated that RPDR has made it more difficult for drag performers who are not on the show to build a career.
