      Aphrodite Starchild but there are not much depth here , i mean its just a costume and make up, where is the real show and a real content... i appreciate nice sense of fashion, but what is it all about maybe i dont understand.

    Seems like it's when our social times are beaten to an unrecognizable sickening state that something as beautiful as this performance and artist shine even brighter. I showed this to my 13 yo to show her there is still wonderful things available and despite a current system that seems bent on turning her young life into one of hopelessness and instill insecurity about who she is, she saw this and smiled. She knows it will get better

    I don't even just like her or love her, I ADMIRE her. She's not the only one to do this kind of artsy drag, but she does it with such dignity and love that I'm blown away by every single performance. I'm so glad she won, and I think it's time for underground artists and creators to actually be represented in the media.
    She inspires me and she really gave me a lot of ideas for my works. Love her so much is crazy.

    I definitely am starting to see what she meant by saying she wants to redefine and change not only the perception of drag but the showcase and performance of it. She is very talented and this isn't what you'd expect normally from a drag performance, but it's beautiful. Taking the drag in the club and bringing it more to the theatre in a dramatic way. Very creative.
