The Queen’s Court was lucky to get a Q&A from an up and coming Philly queen doing her darndest to get noticed by standing out. If you follow Alana Xtreme on social media you will instantly learn two things. First, she loves her eyeliner (see: drag name, get it?). Second, you will know you are following a confident drag queen focused on her craft and always improving it. She takes even her bad days and uses them to make her drag better. This is what is so endearing about Alana. This is what makes you cheer for her. She puts out her best self, while continuing working on getting better at her makeup application, presentation, and performance. Follow this queen to see what governing one’s own self looks like.
