RuPaul's Drag Race Season 7 winner Violet Chachki made an appearance at "Night of 1,000 Queens" where she opened up on her unique style in drag.
Chachki is known for her abilities to tackle the energy of spunky, mysterious women like Dita von Teese and Bettie Page in her drag attire. When she showed up at the New York City Pride event, she mentioned to recording artist Adam Barta that burlesque is something that blends in her performances.
"Drag and burlesque have a really strong history together," the queen said. "There's a lot of crossover that happened. For everything I've researched at least, there's a whole lot of crossover between the two so I'm glad that I can bring it back. And [RuPaul Season 6 contestant] BenDeLaCreme has done a great job doing that as well."
One thing that fans did not get to see during Chachki's time on RuPaul was her talent in aerial performing. As fun as this can be, the queen noted that aerial is a massive challenge.
"The thing about aerial is that you have to train constantly," she said. "You really have to keep your body in shape, it's really physically difficult to do, it's a lot like pole dancing. And there's a lot of insurance and safety concerns that go into it and a lot of the club's venues are kind of weary...but whenever I get the opportunity to do it, I always do and I have a couple numbers that I have to be prepared."
