Now here's a queen taking the world by storm, you may have seen her on the TV once or twice......
BWD: First things first; introductions, who the hell are ya?
Liquorice: Hello Im Liquorice Black a Manchester based drag queen who lives in a world of black and white, vintage and a little bit dark. I also starred along side a few other members of my drag family (the family gorgeous) on channel 4’s Drag SOS. And I am currently starting out as a costume designer for other performers after making my own for the past few years.
BWD: How long have you been performing?
Liquorice: I've been performing for around 7/8 years, my first proper performance was at the 3rd Cha Cha Boudoir were I was mentored by Anna Phylactic who became my drag mother along with Cheddar Gorgeous. I still get a little stage fright but nowadays I’m just more worried about falling over.
BWD: What's been your favourite performance so far?Liquorice: I think my favourite performance has been my first performance after I broke my ankle last June. The performance was for the GHT Charity Drag Ball, in which I was pushed around stage in a wheelchair by a 7”ft Banksie dressed as a nurse, lipsyning to Bette Midlers ‘Pretty Legs’, its such a camp number and was great to be back on stage after months off my feet.
BWD: We had a look on your Instagram highlights, this was hilarious!
BWD: Show us one of your most fabulous looks?
BWD: Absolutely stunned, kudos to Neil Nez Kendall for such a beautiful shot <3
BWD: Who are your biggest idols?
BWD: Tell us something absolutely random about yourself?
BWD: Any advice for someone wanting to embrace the art of drag?
Liquorice: Find something that makes your act different and unique, but always do what inspires you not what you think people want from a drag queen/ king
BWD: A combination of unique and true to yourself is spot on.
BWD: One song to be your anthem, go!
Liquorice: Big spender “Shirley Bassey”
BWD: Yaaaas a true classic!
BWD: If you had to recommend us a fellow fierce entertainer, who should we hit up?
Liquorice:: Obviously any member of the Family Gorgeous there’s a lot of them but I think you should check out my darling sister Narrcissa Nightshade, she’s the aunt sponge to my aunt spike (yes that’s a James and the giant peach reference)
BWD: Finally, what's your fave design from our collection?
Liquorice: You’ve got lots of fab designs but really like the support your local drag t-shirt
BWD: We absolutely loved working with our lovely local gal Erin to make that tee and support our local performers, glad you like it!
