Featured in the new drag queen film about to be presented on June 19, just in time to celebrate Pride, is “Drag Race” contestant Detox. The film also features Bob the Drag Queen and Latrice Royale. The hilariously funny film premiere will take place at the SVA theatre, in partnership with New Fest, as part of OutCinema. There will also be screenings in LA and San Francisco.
What is the character that you portray in the movie, and how are the two of you similar?
I play White Chocolate. She’s a long-in-her-tooth, freak nasty bitch with a soft spot for her African American frenemy, played by Mayhem Miller. We are the same person. LOL!
Did you have a favorite funny experience while filming the movie ?
The entire thing was hysterical. I was making a movie with some of my closest friends. We played drinking games. We were all pulling double duty, too, so the delirium factor was always funny. Plus, sexually harassing the straight crew is what we truly lived for.
If you had the power, would there be anything you would have changed about your character?
She’s definitely more of a bitch than I am. Luckily, I’m very familiar with playing one on TV.
Is there a favorite part of the film for you?
Any time Latrice is on camera. I cannot help grin from ear to ear.
What did the film mean to you personally?
Honestly, it was great for me to stay home and spend time with my friends. I rarely get the opportunity with my schedule. It’s one of the main reasons I signed up for the project.
What have you been up to since we last spoke?
Oh my God, I don’t even know where to start. Filming a TV show, filming my own show with WOW, the usual constant touring, in the studio working on new music as soon as this Werq the World tour culminates at the end of the month. Desperately seeking a vacation.
