Your Drag Queen Name?

Pull from your memory the name of your first pet and add to it the name of the street you first lived on.

Mine’s Susie Talmadge.

    Chiquita Laura! I think it’s cute. it’s for my friend Josh. I think he was made to perform in drag.

    Cece, you know you’re a bit late to this. God knows it’s been around the bend. Still, delivering.

    Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for Whitey Shiloh! “What will you render us tonight, Whitey?”

    mine would be Pogo Gornto, using this formula, but i actually performed for a time, as Ms Truly Bizarre…

    Fluffy Peach….not bad for a drag name.

    I miss Ms Fluffy, she was the best and only pussy for me.

    Dewey Dell Chou-Fleur. That’s my drag name.

    And I just made that up right out of my head with no help from dead pets nor long departed street ad-dresses. (But with some stealing from William Faulkner.)

    I’m thinking I just may keep it.

    Here’s one from the olden-days, “Fonda Peters.”

    Update: I re-remembered, it was “Sofonda Peters.” A drag queen in Memphis, mid-eighties.

    I wish I could remember how to spell Miss O’Houra’s name. I met her the summer right after high school, I think. 1971 or so. The “hour” in O’Houra was pronounced: hoo-er.

    Miss O’Hooer-a.

    I miss those times. And the people.

    Years after I lost track of Miss O’Houra, I read A Confederacy of Dunces and thought of her when I read about Miss Harla O’Horror.

    Miss Harla O’Horror Old South pet dancin’.

    This is the most durable thread ever. Surely. I do like Snowy Smith. They is a fantastic name for an Alaskan stripper, say, or Canadian maybe, flaunting her stuff down south.

    Actually my real stripper name should be Miss Coco. Because I was in a club at the front once and needed to go to the ladies. The announcer said, “And let’s hear it for our featured attraction tonight Miss Coco” and I stood up smack in the middle of the spotlight. I got a huge round of applause from my table and everyone else joined in madly. The real Miss Coco was not the least bit happy.

    Yes, Casey! Sometimes, I’m sorry I ever brought the subject up. Sometimes, it pleases me. I’m conflicted.

    I rather think Nicotine Richard isn’t that hot for a drag queen name…

    (Yea, our cat was called Nicotine, don’t ask)

    Maybe not for a drag queen, but I’ll claim it. Lowering of the eyes, then a knowing upward glance. “I’m Nicotine Richard. What’s your name?”
