Best Drag Name

City Paper

There’s an art to a great drag name. Think of Divine or Lypsinka or Baltimore’s own Ellen Degenerate (City Paper contributor Michael Farley). When we first heard this year of a new performer named Whitney Biennial, we knew we had another classic, the perfect blend of class and humor. We suppose we shouldn’t have been surprised to learn that Whitney was actually Ryan Mitchell, Farley’s boyfriend, and that Farley came up with the name. Too bad for Farley that Biennial only comes once every two years.
