Hey everyone! Sorry it’s been a while since my last post but I have been revising hard for exams. A law exam at that 😦 It was tough going chica’s but I hope I’ve passed! Anyways, I did get a chance to film another one of my amateur drag looks. This time I chose season 2 finalist, Jujubee.
Words cannot describe how much I love Jujubee. I thought she was one of the funniest ho’s of her season. I do not stand alone in my love for Juju as she was made a contestant on the All Stars season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Juju did something for a young child recently that really pulled on my heart strings. The youngster has been bullied for years due to not conforming to one gender. He had never met anyone who was like him before and Juju asked him if he was her ‘little princess boy’.
He replied yes with a huge smile on his face. His mother commented on how just meeting someone like Jujubee has made such a positive impact on his life.
Seeing the queens in this kind of spotlight really warms my heart. It reminds me that under all the lacefronts and all of the make up that their is a real person under there. Drag queens have much more of a purpose than to entertain. They are mentors for some and idols for others.
They remind us, queen or not, that it’s okay to be different and do your own thing. As long as you’re happy and not hurting anyone then who cares what others think.
Juju is an amazing queen and I hope I have done her some justice with my make-up look inspired by her! Here’s a sneak peak. Video coming soon 😀
P.S. No-one can read a bitch like Juju can, the library will always be open for her.
