Flaunt your Flawless

Why do these queens live tobacco-free?

People using screen readers may not be able to fully view information in this file. The content for this playlist is:
In a dazzling off-the-shoulder dress and dripping in jewels, drag queen Shangela gestures at her smooth
face. Her beehive hairdo stretches up to the ceiling, and she eyes the camera behind glamorous
makeup.
SHANGELA: Don't be fooled by this paint, honey. Mm-mm. This flawless skin is all me.
She wiggles her hips, the sparkles on her dress shimmering with each shake.
SHANGELA: And when this face comes off...
Now, bare-faced and wigless, Shangela stares down the camera. Her creamy complexion glows in the
light.
SHANGELA: You will not clock a single wrinkle caused by cigarettes.
Back in her makeup and dress, Shangela strikes a regal pose.
SHANGELA: 'Cause I'm known for my flawless... I live free from tobacoo.

With heavy makeup and puffy pink hair, drag queen Trixie Mattel poses in front of a cut out of

geometric outstretched hands with long pink fingernails. Beside her, two fit men in tank tops vogue and

show off their painted nails. In a striped minidress adorned with ribbons, Trixie wags a long fingernail at

the camera.

TRIXIE MATTEL: Yes. Yes! Yaaas! I'm known for nails that are so yes, and I would never let smoking turn

them yellow.

With sharp lines of bronzer and highlighter streaked across her cheeks and oversized false eyelashes

hanging off her eyelids, Trixie spreads her shellacked pink fingernails in front of her face. Then, in the

same pose, her long fingernails are unpainted and broken. A ghastly yellow color stains her cuticle

beds. Trixie stares at her nails in horror. A distant scream echos through the room.

TRIXIE MATTEL: I'm known for my flawless... I live free from tobacco.

Upbeat club music plays. Awash in blue light, pointy stilettos strut down a runway. Drag queen Tammie

Brown bops through a cut out of an open mouth in a sequined blue minidress and curly bobbed hair.

She wags a long fingernail at the camera.

TAMMIE BROWN: I'll be known for a lot of things, but I will never be known for a busted smile.

A distant scream echoes. Tammie opens her glossy red lips to reveal rotting brown teeth. One of her

teeth his missing. Her eyes, made up in heavy eyeshadow, go cross. Then, she points at the camera.

TAMMIE BROWN: Yes, queen. Every cigarette is doing you damage.

On the run way Tammie wiggles her hips and shimmies her shoulders. Then she closes her eyes and

smiles, revealing sparkling white teeth.

TAMMIE BROWN: I'm known for my flawless... I live free from tobacco.
