WERRRK.com has proudly partnered up the fabulous Hellen Heels to present the “Into The Draglands” on our YouTube channel starting Wednesday August 19th! (Subscribe to our channel here so you don’t miss a single episode!) We are so excited about being a part of this amazing event and we are thrilled to talk with these amazing up and coming drag artists that are going to be competing! Next up, Faye Mennon!
Into the Draglands is an online drag competition put on by performers of California’s Central Valley. It is the brainchild of Hellen Heels, a popular drag queen know for hosting in Stockton and Sacramento, and performing throughout the Bay Area. The basis of the competition is to showcase these performers by assigning them different challenges every week that push them out of their comfort zones in order to challenge them to show off the full range of their talent. They were required to select their own music, do their own costuming and hair, and to perform as if the world were watching. Some performers consistently ride high, while others crack under the pressure. The performances have been judged post-production so there is the added twist of performers having no idea what the critiques are, if they win a challenge, or even when they are eliminated until they watch live!
Congratulations Faye on being named a competitor for Into The Draglands! What does this opportunity mean to you?
This opportunity means that I can showcase all of the different aspects of myself in one competition. I took a little break, and I’m back to remind everyone that I’m not going anywhere.
For those people who might not be familiar with Faye Mennon, can you tell us a little bit about you and your drag? How did you get your start?
I started doing drag at fifteen years old at a local charity lip sync show, and I immediately fell in love. Faye has been my persona for the past four years, and I’m extremely proud of what she’s become. She’s a little “spooky, ooky, kooky”, but she will always leave you guessing.
We can’t wait to see what you’re planning on bringing to the competition! Can you give the WERRRK .com universe a little tease of what’s to come for you on Into The Draglands?
She’s gonna be kicking, stunting and voguing all the way through this competition, but she’s definitely gonna surprise you every now and then. Make sure to tune in and see for yourselves!
