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.

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.

As you see her up on stage, woozily doing her thing, you can't help but be happy for her. Amanda Lepore finds pleasure in the artifice of her body; with her immensely fake tits and voluptuous lips, she proves that her most authentic self can be all ornamentation.

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.

I never knew that drag was so political and, in some cases, so cutthroat. Who would have thought that friendships could be destroyed because of men wearing dresses, or that so many people aren't really who they present to the general public? I will honestly say that I didn't.

A piece of advice for any budding queen out there: Before you enter the drag world, make sure you have at least a drag "mother," if not a drag "family." Having one or both of these things is something I would say is essential for any drag queen. Vivian does not have either.
