Columbus on a whole is abuzz with excitement as one of the cities most popular and prolific drag queens is on the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I am a huge fan of drag in general, and a definite fan of our local celebrity Nina West. She is doing an amazing job on Drag Race including a small challenge and main challenge win on episode 3. More than that she has used her platform to bring light on LGBTA issues. Andrew/ Nina’s personal stories are heartbreaking, but important to draw attention to the discrimination and homophobia he experienced. Nina also draws attention to the importance of politics in drag, and in giving back to your community.
It is so nice to see the rest of the world embracing Nina, since she is amazing, talented, and a true performer.
If you are watching this season who are your favorites?
