Have you and a friend sat down to “spill the tea” lately? Terms such as “tea” have been adapted into pop-culture in the last couple of years and even I did not know where they originated from. Much like any other culture, drag artists have developed their own vocabulary throughout the years. Terminology has a way of bringing a group together, much like a nickname would or “inside jokes”, and this is no different, Honey. Let’s spill the tea on the vocabulary of a drag queen and give these queens the credit they deserve!
Cece Drake is a pageant queen who is gearing up for her first pageant this summer! This drag queen loves theatre, pink, and performing around local clubs. Cece is a force to be reckoned with so get ready for her debut!
This post is about how gender norms play a role in our every day life. I thought it would be interesting to compare the difference in self-care products used before bed every night. Items such as shampoo, conditioner, face wash, razors, and body wash, are worked into our life from the time we are a child. Scents and colors matching the gender we identify with. Not only is the packaging different for me and women, women are also pushed more items through marketing telling them to look a certain way and buy more products to make them beauiful. I decided to focus on the items my boyfriend has in his travel bag compared to mine. This is not the case for all women, some may not buy as many self-care products as me and that does not make them less femine just as a male having more products does not make him less masculine. But, from my point of view as a woman, I have felt the pressure to use more body and face products in comparison to my boyfriend. Therefore, I decided to focus on the difference between the number of our products, the packaging, and the purpose. Enjoy! 😊
