The Race Is On

The library is open! We meet all 14 queens from season six of RuPaul’s Drag Race, hunty

Joslyn Fox Patrick Joslyn, 27

Career highlights: Miss Gay Worcester 2010-2011.

The moment I first got into drag was: For an amateur night in Boston. It was the weekly show I was always in the front row for. I was finally given the opportunity to share the stage with my idols. Unfortunately, the contest was cancelled, but I got to spend the entire night mingling and really experiencing first hand just how much fun I could have in drag.

My drag inspiration is: Any and all drag queens. We’re all artists and can learn so much from each other.

I strive to be a multi-faceted drag queen, so I love to absorb all that I can from other queens no matter what their style.

My greatest drag tip is: To contour and highlight your chest for instant cleavage. Real women can do it, too. It’s what I like to call The Three-Minute Boob Job.

My ultimate song to lip-sync to is: Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love.

The reason this is the ultimate song is: Because it’s so full of sassy power. There’s nothing like strutting across the stage to that song, serving some fierce eye stares out into the audience.

The defining drag moment in herstory to date was: Drag queens in the front lines of the Stonewall Riots. I think a lot of people forget about that. Drag challenges the ideas of what is right and what is wrong, so who better than a queen to say enough is enough.

The shadiest thing ever is: Ginger leaving the Spice Girls. Way to ruin my childhood, Geri.

The season six girl I would kai kai with is: Milk, please.

For me, being a drag queen means: being a larger than life persona that people can relate to. A role model that people can aspire to. Because the reality is that the queen is just an extension of the boy behind the makeup. It should be an inspiration to all to be better versions of ourselves, and to always stay true and honest to who you are. Live outside of the box, for no one but yourself.

My drag dream is: To conquer the world!

If I wasn’t doing Drag Race, I’d be: Back home waiting tables, at a seafood restaurant, so I’d still be serving fish. joslynfox, @joslyn_fox


Laganja EstranjaJay Jackson, 25

Career highlights: As a young child, I toured nationally with The Will Rogers Follies starring Larry Gatlin and was featured in several commercials. In 2007, I was named Presidential Scholar in the Arts for my choreography and presented my piece, Not Today, at the Kennedy Center in front of the President. In 2012, I started drag and then made it to RuPaul’s Drag Race just two years later!
