This week I had the absolute pleasure of chatting to Tempest DuJour, star of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7’.
We chat through everything from her playing dress up as a child(and the therapy that he was sent to because of it)to going on a Mormon mission. We talk on her time in NYC and her experiences of the clubs and bars and her work on some big productions.
Tempest(and/or Patrick)explains her love of theatre and an early experience of going to see the play ‘Torch Song Trilogy’ with her mum and the ladies from church!
Leigh Bowery, Boy George and Tempest’s love of all things 80’s and British feature as do some of the characters from the play she derives her name from.
And of course we talk about the experience of appearing on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and the horrific accident that pushed Tempest to go for gold in the Olympics of drag.
Enjoy and share!!
