I love drag because (contrary to popular belief) it’s not about looking pretty. It’s about making a statement and taking bad things and making them good. You can take anything you want, and twist and warp it to make it your own. You can do whatever the fuck you want to your body and you’ll always have people that love you for it. With drag it doesn’t matter if you’re fat or skinny, big or small, fishy or butch, etc. It just matters that you convey a message that means something to you, and maybe it’ll connect other people along the way.
The Art of Drag - Drag is an art form that trades on the capacity to perform gender, invent character, and often to impersonate celebrities and enact their talents. By exploring current or historical situation, we have constructed an argument about the ways that fame functions in drag.
i’m on my phone, so i can’t provide links, but basically vicky vox decided to randomly tweet that she thinks katya is annoying, and the only reason other people don’t think katya is annoying is because of racism…. and she tagged katya in the tweet.
understandably, fans were upset and started responding to the tweet. vicky, probably basking in all of the attention, decided to make it even worse by bringing up katya’s addiction. her exact words were, “ I think the reason she’s celebrated is also her undoing. I don’t see a comedy super hero. I see an addict in recovery.”
SHE TAGGED KATYA IN THIS TWEET AS WELL.
katya reacted to the drama in a deleted tweet, so it has clearly affected her? we all know katya still struggles with her past addiction, but she’s worked so hard to overcome it, and her drag is so much more than that?
anyway, detox defended vicky. it’s not surprising, but it’s still disappointing.
