Have you ever witnessed an utterly drab looking guy who, after some whooshing and zhushing and contouring, suddenly turns into a stunning woman till the clock strikes 12?
Not me, mind you!
Every single drag queen I know in New York is unspeakably, stunningly gorgeous as both a man and a woman! (Oh, hush.)
But I need to know about the most successful genderplay YOU’VE seen.
Similarly, are there any blah looking ladies who magically become hot and studly drag kings?
I hope so. It would suck to go to all that trouble and still look bad.
(Thanks to Van Dam promoter Chuck Attix for suggesting the question.)
