One of the only thing I love more than watching episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race multiple times, is reading Chad Sell's amazing Ru-caps of the episodes! Chad may best be known for his amazing portraits of the contestants but he is also an brilliant cartoonist. (He even created this portrait of Johnny and I for Velour #2.) So when Chad asked me to chat with him for one of his Ru-caps, I was thrilled!
"I think Drag Race is a wonderful show, but its focus is purposefully kind of narrow when it comes to the world of drag. And that’s okay. For me, the question isn’t, 'does Drag Race do a good job of representing the drag world?' (because it can’t possibly… it’s a brilliant and fun tv show) but rather, 'how else are we going to represent ourselves'. It’s our job to create new platforms to showcase different/weirder/queerer types of drag."
