What Is Shade?
4 RuPaul's Drag Race Queens School Us on the Art of Throwing Shade
Bob the Drag Queen
- On shade and sisterhood: "Just so you know, shade does not negate sisterhood. Just because you're shady it doesn't mean you're not sisters. We are drag queens. We are shady. It's in our blood, it's in our DNA. We can't help it."
- On not letting shade get under your skin: "Don't let girls f*ck with you. You are here to prove a point, don't let girls f*ck with you."
- On how best to throw shade: "You want to throw shade with a read, you want to just do a little shoulder nod. The best way to throw shade is to get a little bit of insult in there, but also if you make it about you, too, everyone feels fine."
