The Drag ‘Gram of the Week: So You Think You Can Drag Finale Special Edition

TGOTW

You love Instagram. We love Instagram. Drag Queens love Instagram. So we figured, why not combine the three as “The Drag ‘Gram of the Week”? Now when we say “Drag ‘Gram”, we’re not talking about Lady Bunny! Each week, we’re going to spotlight our ten favorite drag-related Instagram posts of the week! If you’re a queen or a drag photographer and would like to be featured in an upcoming edition of “The Drag ‘Gram of the Week”, be sure to tag your Instagram posts with #WERRRK (and following us on Instagram wouldn’t hurt your chances either!) so we don’t miss any of your fabulous shots!

This special bonus edition focuses on the queens who competed this fall in season 7 of So You Think You Can Drag held over nine weeks at New World Stages in New York City. Congratulations to Vicky Boofont for winning the season, to Paige Turner and company for putting together another spectacular season and to all the other amazing queens who competed! They’re all rising stars in the Big Apple so you should give them all a follow on Instagram (except for that no good Beverly Leslie Sills. She’s the kind of monster who wears green to a green screen shoot. The literal worst!)

This has been an amazing journey #sytycdrag7! Last night, I had the joy of sharing two pieces and a runway that are at the core of who I am. I did a selection from 'I Am My Own Wife', stepped onto the studio lot with 'As If We Never Said Goodbye', and was #readyformycloseup with my Norma Desmond runway! And not to be forgotten, all of the welled up emotion, tension, and fun came out in an unforgettable, unprecedented FOURTH lip sync showdown between me and @vickyboofont. Together, we 'Let It Go' and showed everybody what two sisters can do with a showdown! . . . Congrats to Vicky, our season 7 winner! I love you girl, and I'm honored and proud to be your lovely first alternate! You brought it every week with mile-high hair, rhinestones on rhinestones, iconic performances, and unforgettable humor. I'll always be #teamvicky I will always be indebted to @paigeturnernyc, who is a guiding light, an inspiration, and a generous soul. Her curation, dedication, and mentorship in this season has molded the careers of ever contestant. It's a true, true hallmark of an amazing mentor when they can usher along the talents of such a wide range of queens. We brought you raw talent, and you helped us give it voice. Thank you. . . . I have a lot UP my sleeves you guys! I'm pedaling show ideas, open for bookings, and also am taking requests for custom clothing orders! Hit. Me. Up. #darkswan #teamswansong #readyformycloseup #transrightsarehumanrights #normadesmond #sunsetboulevard #iammyownwife #dougwright #acting #soloperformance #offbroadway #lsfyl 📸- @davidreddamaker
