We will discuss Drag Pageants, where to get your start, the hurdles, and the triumphs of being a queen.
There has been a lot of discussions lately about beauty pageants and their negative effect on young contestants, especially young girls. The question is are beauty pageants any different from sports for kids? What are the pros and cons of each. We weigh in on this hot pageant topic.
THE TIME HAS NOT BEEN CONFIRMED YET!
Once upon a time, Sydney boy Shane Jenek tried out for Australian Idol. Not quite making the cut he wasn’t discouraged, Shane bent the rules and his gender, returning the next day as Courtney Act, and made it through to the finals. Courtney’s explosive, energetic performing style, coupled with her joyous personality, sent audiences wild and Australia had a new, slightly less conventional, sweetheart. Hot on the high heels of the TV series came the phenomenally successful national arena tour and a record deal with Sony/BMG.
Over the coming years Courtney forged herself a name in the Australian entertainment industry, garnering chart hits, television appearances, and national advertising campaigns, and she toured Australia, Europe, Asia and America. She was even voted one FHM’s World’s Top 100 Sexiest Women (despite not actually being a woman), sang at Lady Gaga’s private birthday party, and opened for Gaga on her Australian club tour. She’s played the role of Angel in RENT the musical and she’s been the face of Sheer Cover makeup across the three major TV networks selling makeup to the women of Australia on morning television. She’s no Joan of Arc, but it is pretty revolutionary having a female illusionist, selling the illusion of beauty to females.
In 2011 Courtney moved to the USA, on a visa titled Alien Of Extraordinary Ability, to show America and the world what she’s got! After completing a national club tour of 20 dates around North America she set up her new life in West Hollywood. Courtney has been announced as a contestant on the 6th season of Rupaul’s Drag Race which will be premiering on Viacom’s Logo Network in February 2014.

SEATTLE, November 12, 2014 — Cancer survivor, mother and drag racer, Tina Stull has pretty much done it all. She started racing in 2002 but was soon diagnosed with terminal cancer. Tina says:
“In 2002, I was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was told I had three years to live“
“I had to make some decisions about what I wanted to do with the time I had left. I decided that racing was one of the things I had been putting on the back burner but something I really wanted to do.“
Tina now spends her time racing in the Super Comp Dragster circuit and helping motivate people to overcome obstacles in their lives as a motivational speaker. She has also created "Team Troops", a support group for the fine men and women in our armed forces. Tina said, “I really appreciate the Soldiers who serve, because the job they do allows me to do what I do,” she said. “My getting to drive race cars is entertainment. People in the military are changing history. It’s important that when they go out to do their job, they know they are fully supported here at home.“
Join your hosts, Greg Sanchez and Duane Pemberton as they have Tina Stull live, on the air this coming Friday at 5pm EST.
