RuPaul's Drag Show alum Raven celebrates Seattle Pride

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Raven at Le Faux
June 26
Julia's on Broadway


There is no question about it: RuPaul's Drag Race is all the rage. There is also no question that Julia's on Broadway has been successful in showcasing the fan favorites from the show. The incomparable Shannel headlines Seattle's best female impersonation show, Le Faux, with RuPaul's Drag Race season 1 favorite Ongina stopping by to wow audiences. Now that RuPaul's Drag Race's second season is complete, Julia's has booked Raven to perform at the Capitol Hill Pride Festival on June 26. In addition, Raven will guest star in the June 26 production of Le Faux alongside another season two Drag Race alum, Morgan McMichaels.

Seattle Gay News checked in with Raven to talk drag, Gay Pride, and what it was like to be a contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race.

"I've never been to Seattle," Raven told SGN. "I'm so excited!"

Raven, who was first runner-up on season 2, won fans over with her fierce performances, competitive nature, and her uncanny ability to give great face. Raven says she's been a drag artist for a little over eight years. "I told myself I was going to do drag on a stage and not for Halloween," said Raven. "Since then, I can't tell you how many times I've performed."

"Drag is an amazing form of art, and I am da Vinci," she told SGN. "I truly have a wonderful time doing what I do."

Raven told SGN that since appearing on RuPaul's Drag Race, the response from fans has been amazing. "On the show, one of the biggest things I wanted out of this was for the people who didn't like my drag to see that I have what it takes to make it to the top," she said. "Did I win? Not the cash or the title - but I did win those people over, so mission accomplished! Also, my fans are the shit. I love all of them."

Raven said her fans can expect "an absolute sweetheart and a good time" at her June 26 Seattle debut.

"This Gay Pride, I want people to celebrate diversity and to love themselves," Raven told SGN. "Be proud of who you are and any and everything you have accomplished. Keep your dreams alive and live each day like it's your last."

"Look out, Seattle & here I come!" she continued. "Happy Pride, and I can't wait to have a blast with all of you."
