Lights, Camera, Action

Destiny Sterling says that she first became interested in drag when she went to B-Bob's Gay bar in Mobile, Alabama and seen her first drag show.  From there glitter and lights was all we dreamed about.  

Destiny says it takes her around an hour to an hour and a half to sometimes two full hours to get ready for a performance the day of the show.  DS will spend the beginning of the week starting on Monday thinking about what songs she will be performing to for the weekend shows and as the week progresses she works on the performance costume, hair and makeup.  

Destiny Sterling goes through many different emotions before, during and after a show.  She says that before a show she has an adrenaline rush and gets very nervous.  During a show DS gets to release all of the energy that she gets before a show into her performance to give a well rounded show.  After a show DS says that she feels accomplished and relieved that she performed an amazing show.  Destiny performs Drag Art Shows regularly at Pink in Monroe and Androgyny in Houma.  DS says that her tip for new Queens is to just be yourself, keep your head up and do the best you can do.
