The Exclusive Interview with Rupauls Dragrace Superstar Honey Davenport
At what age did female impersonation become an interest?
I was around 23 when peppermint discovered me and made me one of her backup dancers, but I’m pretty sure I was the first fetus to wear lace fronts
How did you go about getting on “RuPauls Drag Race.” Tell me about the experience?
I auditioned 9,000 times, which is one time less than Nina West. I used every audition as an opportunity to polish my craft further my abilities. That work helped me take advantage of every chance to expose my art to the world. Which is all I ever wanted from the show, so the experience is very rewarding.
Ru accidentally gave me my name- I asked her to sign a book to the Hunties, which was my dance group at the time. She misheard me and wrote Honey instead- and that’s how honey was born.How did you pick your name?
No tee no shade what’s next ?
Music, Tv, Movies. My Album /Movie/ live show “Raw and Unfiltered” is dropping in pieces throughout the summer/ Fall. The Album is well underway with many singles already released. The stage show debuts July 11-13 in NYC at the Laurie Beechman. And the movie is moments away from post production and is scheduled to be released in film festivals late in the fall.
Thanks for the interview Honey!
