What I enjoy about this queen is her ability to use drag to deal with tough issues, challenge her audience and provoke conversation.

At the season finale of Dragnificent, Atlanta's premier drag competition, I saw the most offensive number I believe exists. Celeste Holmes, host of Dragnificent, introduced the performer by telling the audience, "You are not prepared for this." Celeste was right.

The Other Show demonstrates the amount of queer creativity centered in Atlanta. There are a lot of divas who make it to our stages, but only the fiercest survive. With a devoted following, a rising diva in the form of Violet Chachki, and a creative no-rules ethos, this is the place to see drag in Atlanta.

Evah's version of "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" is a masterpiece, and I think it's exemplary of the thought a queen can put into creating a character. Evah, as a theater queen, can easily play to the folks in the cheap seats, and everyone in the audience is enraptured. Hers is a dedication to craft that few other performers have. The drama starts with her.

Mo'Dest Volgare first performed at local drag dive Friends on Ponce two years ago and has been part of Nathaniel's life since. Mo'Dest has built a safety net for Nathaniel in the drag community, and he would probably be homeless if it weren't for her.

When I look at Alaska, I feel like I see someone I've always known. She's that boy we all knew in high school -- clever, nerdy, creative, and an overachiever as well. Maybe I'm just projecting my own experiences onto Alaska; however, there is a familiarity to her that is undeniable.

If you look past the veneer of drag, you see Andrew as a man struggling to balance these two very different sides of his life. There is a fire within Edie that guides her, and I can easily see her making it big. But there's no promise that show business will make life better for Andrew.
