Drag Queens


BuffaloGayBars would like to list ALL the Drag Queens and all the Drag Performers.  This is not an honor or any sort of selection process.   ALL are welcomed to be listed on this page.  BuffaloGayBars will not chose or bio any of the performers or queens unless requested to do so, and with their permission.  All mini bio’s on this page were written by the queen or by her friends.  It is the intent of this page to offer a quick picture and a quick mini bio to any organization or group or to any person whom may want to see who the performers are, at the next show or event.  Several of the major drag queens in Buffalo, have not submitted or requested their inclusion on this page for what ever reason they have.  Some of them have contributed much of their time and have benefited the city of Buffalo.  The listing of their crowns, titles and benefits would be very extensive.  Maybe putting a lifetime of accomplishment into a paragraph or two is a little overwhelming ??  Friends of these Queens maybe should help them submit a picture and bio.Google, Yahoo etc searches like this page, and a search done for any of these names will probably point to this page.
