Steal your mother’s heels
Drag Diary #8
Actually, we’ve got our own thanks, but so begins one of the most eye catching press releases we’ve seen in a long time.
So what was it for? Why, the Great Bristol Drag Race of course! Yep, it’s another drag race, albeit slightly more frivolous than last week’s, but that’s not to say it’s any less important.
Saturday 26th June sees drag racing cut a path across the heart of Bristol. The event “features drag queens guzzling energy drinks (rum and cokes more like) as they round the hairpin bends of Cabot Circus and hit speeds never seen in six inch stiletto heels.” Oh yes. Loving. It.
And the whole thing is a fundraiser for Pride Bristol and completely open to all, be it experienced cross-dressers or novice fun runners. Wanna know more? Read all about it.
In other news, we see they’re using a promotional image from RuPaul’s Drag Race as part of their marketing campaign. Sneaky.
But, FINALLY it gives us an excuse to talk about what is, without doubt, the television phenomenon of the decade.
