Can You Guess The Real Name Of These Drag Queens?

If there is one thing drag queens are good at it, it’s hiding their real names. Most of their boy code words can be found online but the mystique of their performance lies in the absence of your knowing who they really are. Why? Because their names are fucking hysterically banal.

This is why one of my favorite things to do when looking up a beloved queen is looking up her real name. Their names are almost always laughably office dude, surprisingly ethnic, or so boring you will believe that they probably took up drag to escape their birth title. Thus, I thought I would challenge you guys: can you match the drag name to the real name? I’ve assembled a list of my favorites below. Good luck! And you will fuck it up.
