Which of your talents are you most proud of and why?

In anticipation of the premiere edition of Divas of Dynasty, our first all-drag-revue at Dynasty Typewriter, we're catching up with some of the performers who will be gracing the stage. 

RuPaul's Drag Race alumni Pandora Boxx is a self proclaimed geeky weirdo who is addicted to glitter and making people laugh.

When were you first introduced to drag and why did it make an impact?
P: I guess I had seen drag on television before but never identified it as such. I think mostly because it was the butt of the joke. Then I saw a real live drag show and I was like, I want to go to there. Actually, the very first performer I ever saw was my gal pal Darienne Lake (who also happened to get on RuPaul's Drag Race too!). I was enraptured by how the crowd lived for her AND they gave her money! Sign me up! It also meant I could create anything I wanted. I was my own writer, producer, director and I could bring all these visions to life.

Which of your talents are you most proud of and why?
P: Drinking. Ha! Honestly, I don't know how to answer that question very seriously. I'm not well at tooting my own horn. Though I do know I seem to have a knack for making people giggle.

What do you like to do when you're NOT in drag?
P: Sleep.

What’s your go-to lip-sync song, and why?
P: Total Eclipse of the Heart. It really is a perfect drag song andI love Bonnie Tyler's raspy voice. I add a little comedy twist to it that I only just started a few years back. It was so simple but it gets a laugh every time. 

If you could have an all-queen dream dinner party, who’d be invited?
P: All my friends are drag queens so I've already lived this. But if we are just talking queens in general then I'd say Madonna, Queen Elizabeth, Oprah and Kathy Griffin. Can you imagine THAT dinner party?

Which of your talents are you most proud of and why?
B: I'm most proud of is the ability to lose myself on stage... and I only want it to get stronger.

Sherry Vine, Heklina, Peaches, Bianca Del Rio, Lypsinka, Bunny, Sharon Needles, Chad Michaels, Vicky Vox... and Goooorrrllll I would just sit back and take IT ALL IN!!!

It's had a major impact on me and I'm doing something I love.

Which of your talents are you most proud of and why?
J: I'm most proud of all my talent I seem to learn more and more new things that I can't do that I never thought I can do and not every body can do them. Like rolling down stairs and not getting hurt. lol.

J: When I'm not in drag I like to cook/eat watch TV hang out with my friends spend time with family and make new outfits.

What’s your go-to lip-sync song, and why?
J: My lip sync go to song is "You Are My Friend" by Patti LaBelle because no matter where I'm at, or what the situation is, I am going to tear that song up. Everyone is going to feel it.

If you could have an all-queen dream dinner party, who’d be invited?
J: Too many Queens to name and a lot of Queens others may not know. I will start off with my whole entire Master drag family: Fila MastersDestiny Masters, and Crystal Masters. Other than them, just give me a big table because I want all the Queens at my dinner party.
