“Drag is like breaking the fourth wall in theater where we’re letting you know straight up that this is an illusion”

SOUNDBITES — “The truth is, we are all illusionists and that’s why we are attracted to it. This whole world is an illusion. It’s not real. The truth of who we are has nothing to do with religion or the type of car that we drive or the color of our skin. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. And the human experience part is very temporary. So, things like the bar, love, magic, dancing, and colors are there to remind us to not take all of this stuff so seriously. Drag is like breaking the fourth wall in theater where we’re letting you know straight up that this is an illusion. People are attracted to that because they know it’s the truth of who they are also. No one is who they think they are. That’s why people are attracted to drag.” —RuPaul, who kicks off the second season of Drag Race tonight on LOGO, on why we love our drag queens (via)
