Lactatia, the 8-year-old drag queen and RuPaul’s Drag Race superfan, opens up about what drag means to her.
‘There aren’t a lot of kid drag queens,’ Lactatia explains. ‘They’re considered inappropriate, but like, inappropriate just means that you look good.’
Lactatia describes drag performance as a way of ‘expressing your feelings.’
‘We need more people to be free. That’s the kind of message I’m trying to send,’ she says.
Lactatia goes on to talk about how awesome and accepting her parents are.
‘They’re here doing this with me,’ she says.
And in terms of haters, Lactatia couldn’t care less about them.
‘For every person hating on me, there’s a bunch of other people just defending me,’ she states.
Lactatia also doesn’t consider drag to be a competition, but rather the product of people working together.
‘I like when people call me a girl when I’m in drag,’ the 8-year-old says. ‘It makes me happy.’
