Help give birth to a drag queen!

So, Halloween is just around the bend, and if the stars align, I’m aiming to make my drag debut. I sort of got trannied-up last year, but that doesn’t really count.

Although the birth of my drag persona should have been reality TV fodder, the best I can do for now is invite you to help pick my name. I’ve narrowed to a short list of the most appropos names I’ve come up with. Please submit your votes!

The names either play on my love of opera/singing, my horoscope (Taurus: the bull), my white skin, general drag puns, and/or my (sometimes) upbeat and playful nature.

If ya don’t know who Cunegonda is (I do a mean “Glitter and Be Gay”), thank heavens for Wikipedia…or, what a “fach” is, ditto!

A friend of mine came up with some amazing foreign drag names (as well as the third option in the poll). I HAVE to share them with you here, although I don’t think they are right for me, or my presumed drag persona.: Chesty Kumallova, Vaselina Alloverya, Marina Fishnetskaya, Lieselotte Sprekenzidoitch. And, although it’s tempting to be über-trashé, I’m passing on some other new gems I dreamt up, including Ismelda Fart, Anja Knees, and Amanda Doo, because that’s just NOT moi!

    …and, as if that wasn’t enough, somehow I forgot to include “Zillernelli”, a take on the famous castrati “Farinelli”…and an old nickname from my choir days (I was a countertenor).

    It doesn’t appear the “Other” votes are made visible to readers, so I’ll share them here.

    How sweet…an old friend who is no longer with us in body used to call me that!

    “Other” vote #2 is: “Diva La Divo”

    hhmmm…would “Rita D. Valkyries” be funnier than the original option 1?

    “Other vote #4 is: “Baroness Paulina Von Zill Zill”.

    I am certain this was submitted by a back-stabbing drag queen who wishes to see my downfall. 😉
