the queen's favorites
Fiercely 'Femme, Fat, and Asian'
A sociology professor analyzes the 'RuPaul's Drag Race' runner-up Kim Chi.
By Spencer Kornhaber

With the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 just around the corner, I wanted to highlight one of my favorite queens from Season 8, Kim Chi, as we conclude this week’s discussion on queering the map of Asian masculinity and desirability. Fiercely femme, fat, and Asian, Kim-Chi calls into question the toxic sexual racism and heternormative structures that hold us down and keep us apart.

P.S. It’s been a pleasure serving as your guest mod this week, for more discussions feel free to hit me up at @hipstirrednotshaken.

“Clearly someone like me is supposed to be lusting after someone like that. But I’m going to not just reject it, but I’m also going to throw some shade at it. And I’m going to redefine what it means to be desirable because I’m the one up here with all the attention. I’m the one that they should want.”

#it’s true they hated each other on s1 but look #everything about this moment is so soft #regina in awe at what emma says and looking at her lips #emma’s face when regina comes closer #regina taking a deep breath and looking into emma’s eyes before she finally speaks #emma’s smile at witnessing regina’s mask slip #you just know this will be the start of something beautiful 


endless list of favorite characters + Mary Stuart

“ I will let no one, not Elizabeth, not any usurper, take my country from me. Since I was a babe, I have been a Queen. Since a child, I have been alone on foreign soil. I know how to keep my life, my crown and I will. “


red queen characters: evangeline samos

With a fluid, cold grace, Evangeline rises to her feet. She barely looks at Cal, instead turning over her shoulder to sneer at the crestfallen girls. She wants them to see her moment of glory. She wants everyone to know what she’s made of. A smile ghosts over her face when her eyes fall on me. I don’t miss the feral flash of teeth.
