NEW YEAR'S DIVA

A Drag Race Holiday: Kenya Michaels

GayCities New York Editor Jeffrey James Keyes snuck under the mistletoe with the contestants on the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race for a closer look at some of their favorite things.

Kenya Michaels

Boy Name: Omar Olivera Bonilla

Current Home: Puerto Rico

Favorite Place on Earth:  My house.  Other than that it’s Africa.  I haven’t had the opportunity to visit but it has been a place that I dream of visiting.

Favorite Bar/Club: Circo in Puerto Rico. It’s always crowded and I love the music—plus it has three bars, a big dance floor and good lights.

What is it about your drag persona helped you make the cut? I think my artistic proposal was really different.

Where will you be for New Year’s Eve?
At home in Puerto Rico with my boyfriend, my family and close friends having a few drinks, eating and having fun!

Why will you win RuPaul’s Drag Race?
Because I have  charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent
