If I had had the soul of a drag queen when I was young, I would have thrown caution to the wind and gone after what I loved, not what was expected of me. See, to me, that is what drag queens do: They go after their dreams, their passion, and they put themselves out there and take risks.

Randall Smith, owner of Renaissance Pageants, stepped out of his luxury sedan, flawlessly dressed. In the backseat of his car sat several big boxes. I asked if they were crowns and trophies. 'No,' he said. They were products.

To complete the drag look, a queen needs jewelry: big, sparkly jewelry to be exact. So once again find out whom your drag queen orders their jewelry from, and order a piece of two. If your favorite drag queen is new, ask around for some suggestions and place an order.

10. The Show Off - a queen who knows they can dance and pulls out all the stops every time they perform. Their dance routines normally always include at least one split, one flip, a death drop and pulling their wig off. They do not understand some times less is more.

When you are married to a drag queen, her art touches every part of your life. I constantly try to pull away from drag, because I need a balance. However, drag is like an eight-armed octopus, a dragopus, that can reach into every part of your life and pull you back toward it.
