“C’mon camera! C’mon recording device! C’mon interview!”
During Drag Race’s groundbreaking ten year run, the show has provided us with a massive influx of iconic drag phrases, all of which have become a part of our everyday vernacular.
When we attended DragWorld UK – Europe’s biggest convention dedicated to all things drag – we asked the queens from the show about their favourite Drag Race catchphrases, and asked them to reenact them for us.
BenDeLaCreme rooted for her season six sister, Laganja Estranja. “Oh, the best catchphrase of all time remains Laganja’s “C’mon!” whatever,” she said. “Anything. “C’mon camera! C’mon recording device! C’mon interview!”
Queens such as Tatianna and Jiggly Caliente rooted for their own catchphrases (“Choices!”, “May I call you Jiggly?”), while Courtney Act said – in a heartbeat: “Miss Vaaaaaanjie!”
Season five champion Jinkx Monsoon praised Gia Gunn’s iconic line: “Feeling like pussy, feeling like cunt.”
She told us: “It’s a celebration of disenfranchised minorities, and I think the more that we can lift up the people who have been oppressed, the further we’re gonna go with progress.”
