A Drag Race Christmas: Sharon Needles

Dec 20, 2011 by

GayCities New York Editor Jeffrey James Keyes snuck under the mistletoe with the contestants of the upcoming new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Boy Name: Aaron Coady

Current City: Pittsburgh/ Transylvania

Favorite Place on Earth: Any dive bar with a happy hour ’til 9:00

Favorite Bar/Club and why:
The Blue Moon ’cause I can get away with murder.

What is it about your drag persona that helped you make the cut?
Sharon Needles is an approachable monster, an idiot savant, an educated dropout, neither a good witch nor bad witch—and all around pretty/ugly!

Now that you are on the verge of stardom, where will you finish your holiday shopping?
Designer dumpsters and Salvation Army

Where will you be for New Year’s Eve?
At the Blue Moon with all my best ghoul friends to celebrate the beginning of the end of the world!

Why will you win RuPaul’s Drag Race?
I am a collage of the beauty and the struggle of our drag foresisters. At the same time I’m herstory in the making. I am the future of drag!
