Bob the Drag Queen

“We’re Here”

From discussing racism in the drag fandom to interviewing a New York City COVID-19 nurse, Bob the Drag Queen has pivoted content to online. “I’m adapting my career,” she says. Earlier this year, she appeared on HBO’s Emmy-nominated “We’re Here” and co-produced the show with her “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alumnae Shangela and Eureka O’Hara.

Elsewhere, she has kept busy, hosting a “Sibling Rivalry” podcast and her “Bob Live” show. The thing she misses the most and is looking forward to again are drag shows. “My favorite thing to do in the city is going to drag shows, and especially amateur drag competitions.” When she’s not beefing up her Instagram content, there’s Season Two of “Were Here” to look forward to. “I can’t wait to see how that transforms,” she says.
