Ryan Heffington of RuPaul's Drag Race Talks Kurt and Chez Deep Drag Sisterhood

Categories: Interviews
Heffington supports the underground drag movement and is seeing it flourish in Los Angeles. "A lot of queers have voices as performative artists, and we long for these venues. They're popping up everywhere in Los Angeles." He called it "a beautiful supportive environment."

We asked the choreographer about his job, which seems pretty fantastic. "It's the best job ever in the world," he laughed. "Get to travel around the world, create dance. I think I facilitated an amazing community in Los Angeles through dance classes. We do performances in clubs, museums, onstage for rock concerts. It's kind of ever-changing. It's kind of like the perfect artist lifestyle. We get paid; I get to be on TV. We get to travel to Hong Kong. It's pretty fucking brilliant."

He's producing his own show, Ktchn, next spring in LA and planning a monthlong run. It'll be an interactive experience about "queer culture, celebrity culture, loneliness, fabulousness." Meanwhile you can catch Chez Deep performing in New York on pagan holidays and at Santos Party House
