Most recognisable from season two of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, Drag queen Tayce has proven week on week with her sharp wit, effortless confidence and determination that she’s a rising star in the making, paving her way through the iconic competition’s various challenges and catwalks. Following the reveal of the nation’s roadmap to recovery, theatre will gradually begin to resume within the next few months, bringing with it an array of events – reminding us as to why the arts are crucial. Taking part in The Parking Lot Social’s DriveTime Drag Tour this Easter, Drag stars from both seasons one and two will entertain with a programme of live comedy, lip synching and more. Ahead of the UK tour, Tayce tells us more about what to expect from the performances, what inspired her to pursue a career in Drag and her time on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
Hi Tayce, you’ll be taking part in The Parking Lot Social’s DriveTime Drag Tour. How are you feeling ahead of the event?
I’m super excited to get on the road and tour, staying in all this time is driving me crazy like everyone else.
The DriveTime Tour will witness stars from season’s one and two of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK visit 9 locations across the UK this Easter. What has preparing for the show involved?
I’ve been preparing some new looks and numbers through lockdown, I’m so excited to show everyone.
What inspired you to pursue a career in Drag?
Fierce women on the telly, growing up I always followed the dance moves and joined in.
You’re best known for taking part in the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. How did you find taking part in the experience?
Oh, doing the show was one of the challenging experiences of my life. I didn’t realise how hard it would be, it’s been physically, mentally and emotionally tiring. It left me extremely drained but I’d do it all over again.
What did you learn during your time on the show?
Stay away from scourers.
What advice can you give to aspiring Drag performers?
It’s simple really, you have to have the passion and love for Drag and be able to have fun, it can only come from the heart. The moment that doesn’t happen and it’s more of a trend, stop.
What can be expected from the tour?
High energy, fierce looks and jaw dropping performances.
