Returning to the Sun City in all her sickening glory is drag queen superstar Alaska Thunderf**k.
The season two “Rupaul’s Drag Race All Stars” winner is best known for her outrageous acts on stage. She recently teamed up with Courtney Act and Willam Belli for the Access All Areas tour, hitting 15 U.S. cities. Almost immediately following her drag trio spectacle tour, she went on to appear in the first season of VH1's “Scared Famous,” which made premiered in October last year.
Before her upcoming appearance at Touch Bar this Friday, Jan. 26, the Snake Queen took some time to answer a few questions about her career, pot and Mexico.
Q. First and foremost, welcome back to El Paso! What will you be doing while you’re in here in the Sun City? Will you be visiting Mexico?
I'll be doing drag, being beautiful and singing music. I'm not sure if I'll make it to Mexico this time. I love Mexico. And anus-thing is possible.
Q. At what point in time in your life did you realize that drag is what you wanted to do?
I saw a performance at Trannyshack in San Francisco on my 22nd birthday. When I saw what those queens were doing onstage, I said to myself, "I want to do that." That was the moment.
Q. Would you ever consider doing a collaboration album with another queen?
I love to collaborate. When you team up with someone, you get to explore different shades of yourself. I'd be open to it.
Q. Since your name is based on a strain of weed, let’s talk marijuana.
I think it's great. I think marijuana is much less harmful than a lot of other substances that are perfectly legal. And I think if the world smoked a joint and chilled out a little bit, we'd be in a lot better shape as a planet.
Q. What plans do you have in the works for 2018? New album, maybe?
I'm working on a few things. I'm writing a lot. So maybe. It's a secret.
Q. What would you be doing if you weren’t doing drag?
