The talented and unique crop of queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11 are gearing up for their big Ru-veal on February 28th. In anticipation for this epic season, we met up with them at the hit Broadway musical The Prom and asked these gorgeous gals to share their most memorable high school prom moments.
In case you’re not familiar with this stellar production, The Prom follows the journey of an openly gay high school student named Emma who was banned from bringing her girlfriend to the prom. Two seasoned yet forgotten Broadway actors, Dee Dee and Barry, discover Emma’s story on Twitter and flock to her small town in Indiana hoping their involvement in cause will overshadow their latest failed Broadway production. Though they originally seek out Emma to selfishly revive garner some relevance, they end up learning a lesson in selflessness and compassion.
Emma’s story rang true for some of our season 11 queens. Even though many of them didn’t get to live their full truth in high school, they were still able to make prom night an unforgettable one. Flip through the gallery to hear the incredible prom stories of Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Mercedes Iman Diamond, Shuga Cane and more.
