As her name might suggest, drag queen Neon Calypso is not afraid of bold colors. I mean, just check out the bright look she showcased in this episode of Cosmo Queens. It’s anything but dull. Currently Neon regularly performs in New York, but she’s been in the game for a minute, and first got into drag back in 2012 during college.
“When I started drag, I was inspired by women of the 90’s, Queen Latifah, Aaliyah, Lil Kim, the list goes on.” Neon told Cosmo. “I really wanted to have a 90’s feel to my drag. Very urban and cultural, with a touch of politics.”
“I used spoken work to highlight the voices of women of color and present them in predominantly white spaces. Now – these numbers are my most favorites!”
