Well boys and girls, we’ve reached our biggest award so without further adieu, we are proud to present the nominees for our top honor, the WERRRK.com 2015 Drag Queen of the Year Award (sponsored by Dallas Coulter Designs). This one is pretty cut and dry, simply which queen had the best year? These are our five selections. The choice is up to you.
As a side note, last year’s winner, Bianca Del Rio is not eligible to win for consecutive years.
Special thanks go out to our friends over at Dallas Coulter Designs for sponsoring this award! Check them out here!
Violet Chachki: You win the premiere drag show on television, you’re probably going to find yourself on this list! Violet Chachki was remarkably consistent week after week on RuPaul’s Drag Race and emerged triumphant when all was said and done. Not a bad year at all.
Asia O’ Hara: The multiple time national title holder had another big year on the drag pageant circuit, claiming the oldest crown in drag pageantry, Miss Gay America. I’m not sure what she is going to do for an encore but hey Asia, can you leave some crowns for the rest of us?
Peaches Christ: The legendary San Francisco drag artist and filmmaker had one hell of a 2015, putting on show after amazing show! From Addams Family Values to Showgirls to Whatever Happened to Bianca Del Rio to Death Drop Gorgeous to The Witches of Eastbay plus taking part in the Drag Queens of Comedy shows, it was a year loaded with creativity and happy audiences for Peaches Christ!
Bob the Drag Queen: One of New York City’s brightest stars expanded nationally this year, was a driving force behind the popular LOOK QUEEN events and cleaned up at the 17th Annual Glam Awards this year, taking home the Entertainer of the Year, Best Comedy Performer and Best Host/Hostess awards!
Katya Zamolodchikova: She might not have won the crown on RuPaul’s Drag Race this season but Katya certainly did win the hearts of fans everywhere with her over the top antics and impressive performances. Katya followed up her run on Drag Race with a world-wide tour of shows for her throng of adoring fans. Not a bad consolation prize I would say.
