Ask Me Anything: Divina de Campo - Drag Race ICON, LGBTQ+ advocate and performer


Divina de Campo    

Question

  • VIP (Public Figure)

This AMA is now closed. Thank you to everybody who submitted a question and a huge thank you to @Divina de Campo for joining us!

Hi everybody!

I'm so excited to be doing this and to join you in the Ditch the Label community.

I'm Divina de Campo, best known from RuPaul's Drag Race UK Season 1. Generally singing, dancing and laughing a lot while I'm at it. I work mostly in theatre and live stages, though I've been known to dip my toes in from time to time to the old TV world.

If you follow me on social media, you'll know that I'm a big LGBTQ+ advocate and very open about mental health struggles and trying to see the path ahead.

So... ask me anything!

Firstly can I just say that I love you and your energy and really enjoyed watching you on the show. My question: what was it like when you first started drag? and what kind of reaction did you get?

Hi Divina, so glad that you're here. I wanted to ask how have you been able to fight off some of the negative stigma towards drag and what advice do you have for people trying to get into drag?

Hi SOOOOOOPO my math teacher says homophobic things in class and my dad thinks I'm saying I'm bi because I want attention or something also I like like my best friend and I don't know what to do. How would you handle all of this? Btw I'm a huge fan.

Hello!

 

I have a question (If you don't wanna answer, It's okay ^^): Say you are still figuring out what you are, But you already came out to your parents when you were younger...What do you do then? Still figure out what you are or stay the way you are?

Hey @laura132

Just wanted to hop in on your post and wondered if you’d like to chat to one of our Trained Mentors about how you’re feeling at the moment?

I will tag them in so you know who they are and so they can reach out to you. @Monsoon & @Blondie
Take care. 😊

Hi Divina!

Is there anything you have to do before you go onstage for a performance? Like any mantras you tell yourself ?
