    • PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID

      No disrespect intended, but I find it mildly disturbing seeing him out of drag. He looks kinda unconvincing as a man. Kudos, for what he’s achieved.

      “will forever be hailed as the first and one of the most successful female impersonators in history.”

      I love RuPaul and the diva he creates is one of the most gorgeous drag queens in history, but by no stretch of the imagination was he the first female impersonator. There have been female impersonators for 1,000s of years.

      A few before Ru: Charles Pierce, Craig Russell, Jim Bailey, Devine, Jimmy James, …

      This is a great little history lesson! One error though, the trailer for Starbooty is from the 2007 remake, not the original 1987 version.

      @laf429: Oops I spelled it wrong but I certainly included Divine.

      Certainly, NO SHADE on Divine, but, RuPaul has taken drag beyond “stellar”! His vision of fantasy is inimitable, and truly Iconic! I doubt anyone will ever surpass his High Hair, or those incredibly looong legs.

      It’s been an exciting life for Ru, some great old pics.
