Katya and Bianca Del Rio Explain Why Drag Queens and Porn Stars Make Such Great Friends

This post is also available in: Español ไทย

On Katya’s podcast Whimsically Volatile, she sat down with Bianca Del Rio and dished about her new film, Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate, that comes out soon. They brought up Dakota Payne, a gay porn star who is featured in the film, and that’s when the conversation of why drag queens and gay porn stars make such great friends came up.

Del Rio explains, “It’s fascinating I find, especially I think since Drag Race, that the majority of the people I follow on Twitter and the majority of the people that I hang out with, having drinks with before or after the show, are always porn stars and go-go boys because they can relate to a drag queen’s life.”

Katya agrees, “They can hang!”

“They understand,” Bianca Del Rio continues. “They know that when everybody comes up to you or talks to you it’s always about something else. And like you can actually have a full conversation with them because they want to have a conversation with you because everything is usually so superficial. Some of my favorite people are porn stars and go-go boys. I can kiki with [them] all night.”

Katya agrees with Del Rio. “There is a huge overlap in the lifestyle, in the expectations,” Katya adds. “The trappings of this kind of quasi-fame. We are like ‘gay famous.’ Bianca is a huge star now, but like, a lot of people want to collect us as little Pokémon for their Instagram. A lot of the porn stars relate to that, too.”
