How can you be a drag queen if you’ve got a beard?  Why don’t you just shave it off? Those are two things I’ve heard often in the past few years since starting my adventure as one of many bearded drag queens. In London I was Sandra From Zone 5 (that means “from the suburbs”). In Berlin I’m GhonnoRhianna.

For me, it’s simple: I like having a beard when I’m a guy, and as I look like a guy most of the time, I keep it. Does it get in the way? Kinda, sometimes, but that’s generally because I’m quite hairy and rubbish at makeup.
