Are you one of "those damn queens"?...

News Link is happy to announce a new feature honoring our amazing damn Drag Queens. Each month News Link will chose to highlight a Drag Diva with a set of kampy and fun questions and serious inquiries into the lives and personal history of our outrageously courageous brothers in drag.

The column will focus attention on an old school drag entertainer one month and an up-and-coming starlette the next. There will be a photo spread of their most creative creations, over the top FACE, and sick performance. Plus they will be spilling all the tea and all their secrets of the trade.

If you are a Drag Queen and want to be featured in this ongoing column simply complete our questionnaire on-line and submit 10 color pictures of your performance and drag creations that showcase your creativity. The pictures need to be of a good quality, in PDF format, and have at least 300 dpi resolution. Send them to
