Of all the queens to come out of RuPaul's Drag Race, there are very few as universally loved and revered as Latrice Royale. We're now three seasons past Latrice's run on the show, and the three casts of queens to come after her have only made Latrice shine even more. Longevity is key in the drag world, and it is incredibly clear that audiences around the country and world will get to experience Latrice Royale for many more years to come. She is large and in charge, chunky yet funky, and also incredibly generous, funny, and kind (none of which rhymes with anything that well but are all still very true). I caught up with Latrice during some of her very rare free time to chat about what's new in her life and her thoughts on the past and future of drag.
You were born in Los Angeles, but your drag career began in Florida. What was it like the first time you brought Latrice Royale back to your hometown?
