Who’s That Queen? Breaking Down the Cover of Legendary Children, Part 2

Posted on October 11, 2019


Darlings, it’s time once again to visit those astonishingly fabulous queens on the amazing cover to our upcoming book! When we say we fell in love with these people, we aren’t even close to joking or being flippant about it. Everytime we try to talk about any of them, we well up with emotion; so much so, that you may actually see us crying in a promotional video if the fine folks at Penguin opt to leave our blubbering in. We have no idea how we’re ever going to do readings without sobbing our way through the whole thing – and it’s not a sad book! Like, at all! It’s just that these folks were so amazing that we can’t help getting choked up at the sheer level of bravery, not to mention charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. We ran down the first half of the cover (the top row down to Miss Crystal, first in the second row) here. Picking up with that pink-bearded diva and continuing left until the end:

 

Hibiscus

 

 

 

Jackie Shane

 

 

 

Sylvia Rivera

 

 

 

Doris Fish

 

 

 

Tim Curry

 

 

 

Divine

 

 

 

It’s like the freaking Avengers of drag, darlings. What a group of icons and legends. We can’t tell you how much of a gift and a privilege it was to tell a little bit of their stories and explain why they endure as legendary figures through the ages. Working on this book has been the highpoint of our careers and we can’t wait for you to read it, so do your ol’ pals T Lo a solid and pre-order it when you can. Please and thank you! We think you’ll love it!
