RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Aquaria takes the cover story of Gay Times Magazine‘s August 2018 edition captured by fashion photographer Stevens Anazco. In charge of styling was Erik Ziemba, with hair styling from Sergio Estrada, and production by Yanni Pena.
“My drag references span much further than RuPaul’s Drag Race – not to discredit the show by any means. I think a lot of my drag is knowing what’s come before me, whether that’s drag or fashion, and just really reinterpreting that. I know things that people don’t expect some 22- year-old to know. I went into the werk room saying all these things, and trying to tell people that I knew what I was talking about and no one believed me! I got to show them and prove to them that I do.” – Aquaria for Gay Times, On her creative inspirations.
