Laila McQueen: RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Eight Profile

For the next couple of weeks I hope to profile most if not all of the queens who are competing on this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I will profile them in no particular order.

Boston in the house! I imagine the city has not been so excited since the Red Sox won the World Series and were featured in the Jimmy Fallon / Drew Barrymore hit Fever Pitch — can you imagine how differently the film would have done in the United States had the remake also been about soccer (aka football just about everywhere else…) Without further ado let us look at Laila McQueen!

Based on the little research I have done it seems that Laila McQueen is quite tough and to the point. Does this shirt not basically tell you that’s the case?

Gloucester seems quite proud to have one of its own in RuPaul’s Drag Race this season, featuring McQueen in this article:

Gloucester’s own Laila McQueen will be one of the 12 competitors on Season 8 of the show. “Only so many girls get a shot to be a part of this journey and I can’t wait for it to start,” McQueen said via e-mail.

Laila has an excellent Tumblr featuring fan art and official photographs. Here is one of the best I have seen thusfar:

Here’s a performance of Pour Some Sugar on Me from a few years ago.

Lastly, consider this.

Tomorrow — TGIF and of course, another profile — Naomi Smalls!
