A Drag Race Christmas: Alisa Summers

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.

Alisa Summers

Boy Name: Alex

Current Home: Tampa, FL.

Favorite Place on Earth: At home, relaxing with my dog.

Favorite Bar or Club:  The Honey Pot in Ybor City.  It’s my home bar—I’ve worked there since I started doing drag.  They treat me well and the crowd there is like no other.

What is it about your drag persona that helped you make the cut? I like to think that I have my own edge.  This was the third year I applied. The people at Logo remembered me and said they could tell I had grown a lot since auditioning for Season Three. I have a great energy and am very easy to get along with. I’m great at what I do, and they saw that!

Now that you are on the verge of stardom, where will finish your holiday shopping? I think I’ll shop at the same places—just buy much, much more!

Where will you be for New Year’s Eve? Performing at the Honey Pot. We always have fabulous New Year’s Eve parties so if you’re in the Tampa area, stop by!

Why will you win RuPaul’s Drag Race? I’m the full package, baby!
