January 2021 – An Introduction to Drag

For their first meeting of 2021 Crowlas and Ludgvan WI opened up their Zoom meeting to WI members from all over the UK . Just under 90 members were then entranced by Newcastle Upon Tyne Drag Queen “Miss Crystal P Enigma”. Crystal  explained about  the history of drag ,the pageant systems for drag queens, drag race and also shared some of the secrets of  drag competition, including  Euro drag competitions and the televised Drag UK. Throughout her talk she answered members’ questions and showed us her shoes and wigs, and shared make up and costume making tips before a performance of “Raining Men” and a montage of songs with various accompanying videos.
