Beauty can be excruciatingly gorgeous. So much so that it’s hard to talk about it. That sentiment sent us spiraling into the world of men in art, especially the art of drag.
In the west, we are subjected to limited standards for what is considered pretty. Though our world is vast and there are numerous (almost limitless) ideas and standards for attractiveness depending on where one is on the planet, we still find in societies influenced by western art and media, standards that have very little to do with the majority of global citizens. Of late, the idea of holding on to just those few ideas has thankfully been deemed ridiculous and is being fought by a revolution of diversity.
One dynamic in this global change is the idea of gender fluidity and allowing oneself to “just be” vs. “to classify” or be labelled. The Art of Drag has always been an outstanding example of declassification on many levels. Moving from one gender to another as an art form is beautiful. We found the following drag queens (or Royals as we like to refer to them) absolutely stunning in and out of drag. According to several fans in the RNG entourage, Bianca Del Rio is the epitome of a ravishing royal. Lady Del Rio was more than just a winner on RPDR. She was EVERYTHING…but boy did we fall for her hard when she gave fans a glimpse of her personal life through Instagram and other publications. If you haven’t seen the bombardment of the “beautiful beau” Roy Haylock -her other persona or other self- then you haven’t lived. This is beauty, this is gorgeous… that face, those eyes…the sentiment and simple moment of a snapshot sans makeup, just Mr. Haylock in all his handsome glory is as exhilarating as Bianca Del Rio’s “show.” We don’t know what we love more. Sensual and sensational only partially sums up the photos. Go ahead, log on and look behind the scenes of Lady Bianca Del Rio. We are so digging it…
Smooch your screen…we totally understand. Look how ABSOLUTELY STUNNING THIS BEAUTIFUL HUMAN IS…LOOK AT HIM!

Bianca please don’t get upset…we couldn’t help ourselves. You are too beautiful for words…
Other beautiful men who can slide in and out of a female form flawlessly are Bob the Drag Queen, Nicole Paige Brooks, Katy Cakes, PhiPhi O’Hara…the list goes on. These young men are not only gorgeous women but absolutely beautiful sans performance. RNG is all about uplifting and drawing attention to this very thing…they are a major part of the diverse aesthetic.

Beauty is thankfully no longer limited to one sex. Men are allowed to lie still and be admired in their many forms. The male body has become art and something to be appreciated in every respectable aspect. There is no taboo in the idea of a man being beautiful. He is no longer tied to “handsome.” Many men today are (and are allowed to be) so much more than that. It’s overwhelming at times, just like gazing upon the royals in their quote “natural state.” Again, it’s just absolutely overwhelming…a true era of euphoria for fans indeed. We certainly find ourselves in a swoonfest over these fantastic artists. Whether they drag it out or just lay there like Bianca in her bare and beautiful form. To soak up the sunlight in their face is a pure cloud nine experience. We know many feel the same way.
