    I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in ever becoming a drag queen. And yet I found this video completely fascinating, engaging and educational. Trixie is so intelligent, and she presents all of this information so thoughtfully and helpfully. These are all things that I had never even considered in the world of drag. I already had such enormous respect for Trixie, and ALL drag queens. But after watching this video, my respect has increased exponentially. I know that this comment isn’t funny or clever, but it really is very heartfelt.

  • RB

    Trixie’s ‘character’ is so sassy that I don’t think a lot of people realise how genuine and sweet she is underneath. I went to a meet and greet with her recently and was completely blown away by how warm and kind she was. It just made me stan her even harder.

    The very first time i performed, i was quickly introduced to the cutthroat older queens. I was green and they saw me coming a mile away! The queens did everything from not letting me use a station to get ready to running after me insisting i spreay oil sheen on my face because i was too powdered. Sabotage!! But i came prepared and did really well because of it. I showed up painted, wigged and padded in sweats. All i had to do was put on my outfits and walk to stage. I was early. I was polite inspite of their ugliness. I earned their respect. (Until they learned that i got all the tips and they got none and promptly removed me from their show!)🤷🏾‍♂️ all shade lol. Moral of the story be kind, be punctual and be prepared!

      I do agree that when I first heard she was sponsored by Google I didn’t love that, but I do think that a bigger company providing a tool to help support smaller companies can be useful and I think it gives small voices volume by acting as a megaphone. I want to know which businesses are woman or black owned and if a sometimes shitty company like Google provides a way for me to do that easily then I’ll try it. Ends justifying means type of thing

      @Danny T no necessarily. As Trixie said, you want to meet everyone. Knowing people in the field helps you so much, coming from an actress. Before I made friends in acting, I barely got any roles but now I get almost triple the amount of roles I had before.

  • Ryan Freeman
    Ryan Freeman Hace un mes +63

    Mine to add:
    Never EVER assume because you saw drag queens have a disagreement think it’s appropriate to try to forge a relationship by talking sh*t to one of them. If they’re sisters, it’s a very tight bond.
    Never base your whole opinion about someone’s art off their appearance on a televised reality show. Do your research!
    Credit those who helped you, even if it was just a small gesture.

    “Don’t be jealous, petty and abusive towards other drag queens. You are not there to compare and contrast you are there to learn, encourage and support each other. Find your own drag identity and be supportive of other queens finding theirs!”

    I really want a Drag King competition show. I feel like I see plenty of Drag Kings out there, and having a show for them would push the art-form into the public

    • Yami Yugi
      Yami Yugi Hace un mes +7

      It is a bit upsetting that “Drag Race” the biggest drag competition is really only focused on feminine presenting drag. I wish it included all drag.
      I’d love to see Drag race include kings as well instead of just the queens.
      I swear lots don’t even know drag kings are a thing because only queens seem to get the spotlight.. Drag Kings are just as talented and they deserve attention too.

    Trixie has excellent advice for understanding your expectations and setting yourself up for the best possible time.

This is such a great quick crash course for any level/aim of any endeavor!

    I loved all of this. I recently got back into doing drag after a couple years of not. I do not do it full time and don't plan to. It is a creative outlet for me. I'm lucky to have a group of local Queen's who ask me every so often to do a show. I'm even developing a King character to try out. I've loved drag my whole life and it's my favorite creative outlet.

    Yes, yes, so much yes in this video! I've been performing for more than 2 decades and show directing almost as long, and so much of this is absolutely what I tell prospective new performers! I don't care how talented someone is, if they are rude or cause problems I simply don't book them. When newbies ask me for advice, I tell them that the biggest thing to remember is that the only thing better than being invited to perform somewhere, is being invited BACK! Be nice, have fun, and calm the eff down - it's just crossdressing, Mary!

    I've always been a supporter of drag, I love how much artistry goes into it. I first encountered drag in person at Hamburger Mary's in Milwaukee ( where I'm from) it's such a shame it doesn't exist anymore but if you live in a big city... Literally just walking down the street in drag will catch people's attention. I look for Trixie every time I'm back in town... Just hoping that I'll see her somewhere.
    I think another great tip would be that you're going to get negative feedback no matter who you are. There's gunna be people that hate on you, turn that hate into more fierce energy cuz guess what? Haters usually are just sad, miserable people that will never have the courage to do what you do. Develop a thick skin. Just really try to focus on the people who love you and support your art.

    Seriously, truly though, seriously; the Trixie Matel School of Drag needs to happen.
    Imagine; an actual Drag School, with career advice, loans for start-up wigs and costumes.
    Formally register your Drag Name, with a huge database to check you’re not accidentally using someone else’s name.
    The Clown School comparison isn’t so far fetched. They have their names, their personas and (most importantly) their unique makeup catalogued.
    A Drag School!

    This affirmed my current knowledge of drag and I can’t express the appreciate I have for videos like this!
    I’ve been doing costuming for over 10 years and only recently gained the confidence to pursue drag without worry of what my ppl thought of me. After 3 years of trying to figure out what I wanted to do and gain from drag I began making my drag character a reality by attending drag shows in fun outfits and makeup, more clubkid than drag, and was able to connect with artists there. During [Pride] events I went in full drag and made even more connections!
    Trixie covers the beginnings, appreciations, and hardships of starting a little drag career/hobby well. I hope whoever is taking drag into consideration enjoys this video as much as I did

    What an amazing talk! I got a tip for you Girl. You should talk to the people that do the online "Masterclass" videos. Tons of people ( Gordon Ramsey for cooking, Kris Jenner for branding, musicians, artists, etc) have done it and it's pretty much a longer and more indepth version of what you did in this video. I think you'd be great at it. Get that gig. People pay to take "class" , but I don't know what they pay the talent ( probably depends on interest and revenue brought in by the "instructor"). Anyway, I just thought you'd be a natural for it when I watched this video....💗

    This video was actually really helpful, especially since I’ve been contemplating about doing drag as a passionate hobby and potential long term career since I’ve watched Drag Race season 4 a decade ago.
    Thank you Tracey Motel :)

    I’ve been going to drag shows since I was 18 and had a fake ID. Backstreets in Atlanta had Charlie Brown Revue. It was amazing! I’m now 53 and still I’m love with drag. 💕💕💕

    Imagine a show where Trixie has a drag starting contestants and every week she gives them points based on criteria like in this video to move on in the competition. And the winner is her first drag protege, daughter and Trixie is a drag mother
