Description

We’re drawn to drag queens and love being entertained by them.

But have you ever thought about what it takes to build a business as a drag performer? How much do they invest in costumes, makeup and marketing?

How do you make drag a full-time job?

Jessica L’Whor is an up-and-coming national queen who got her big break winning the Colorado State University Drag Show in 2013.

Since then, Jessica has been named Best New Queen on the Scene and Colorado’s Drag Entertainer of the Year.

On this episode of Queer Money, Miss Jessica joins us to discuss the economics of being a drag performer and describe how she does financial forecasting for her business.

Jessica explains what life was like before she got her big break and what she would do to avoid credit card debt if she could go back to the early days of her career.

Listen in to understand how Jessica lives her core values—work hard, play hard and slay humble—and learn how to turn the hobby of being a drag queen into your main source of income.
