Drag Queen Names:

I just love how creative many drag queens have been in selecting their names. It's almost like a parlor game as I can picture a gaggle of them sitting around trading makeup hints and seeing who can come up with the best name. I wonder if the Imperial Court System has guidelines for that. Anyway, I love the ones that are play on words, and here are a few I've collected, many from the pages of the now defunct magazine, Dragazine. They are in no particular order, and most were, or are, real names.
