Best Drag Performer

TIE: Rebecca Havemeyer; Saffire Trinity Stone

They may have you wondering, "Is she or isn't she?" Well, you, dear readers, selected these two performers as the "Best of Austin," so you might as well know. The answer is: "Yes. They are." Are what? Faaabulous. Each takes a radically different approach to performing in drag, and both can entertain the grumpiest of audiences and have them rolling on floor – either in admiration, hilarity, or pain. Saffire (Olin Meadows) does glam and classic Hollywood and Broadway, often with a sense of humor that belies how serious his performance is, and Rebecca … well, Rebecca (Paul Soileau) defines glam in her own messy and hysterically twisted way. With one or the other performing regularly around town, no matter what they're doing, be assured you will flip your wig.
