Celebrating Queen's Day with some bitchin' SF Royalty

|
(0)

Today is Queen's Day in the Netherlands, meaning millions of people all across that cute little country are partying in the streets, wearing orange, and getting trashed in the name of Royalty. America at large has yet to pick up on the awesomeness of this Dutch holiday, but thank the gay gods San Francisco cherishes her Queens year-round. So while Amsterdam is going wild for Queen Beatrix, now is a good time to honor some of our city's own brand of prime royalty. It's time to bow to the Queen...

Pollo Del Mar

Pollo Del Mar,  a.k.a. "The Notorious P.D.M." or Glamazon, doesn't just rock the 'hot drag queen' title alone; she's a performer, personality, emcee, magazine cover girl, journalist and even reigned as the 2007 Miss Trannyshack

SFBG: What are you the Queen of?
PDM: A little over a year ago, the San Francisco Bay Guardian declared me "The Queen of San Francisco Media." It's a title I hold proudly. I know that bitch Perez Hilton calls herself the "queen of all media," but maybe my next goal should be to become the "DRAG Queen of All Media"?! LOL!!

SFBG: If you ruled as Queen, what would be your first order?
PDM: I'd like to order a two piece and a biscuit, please, as long as it's Tuesday. That's the 99-cent special at both Popeye's AND KFC. Seriously, in this economy, that's just smart meal planning, honey. Oh, yeah, and be good to yourself and others. If you don't respect yourself, why should anybody else?

SFBG: Who is your ideal King?
PDM: To be honest, Barrack Obama isn't too far from my ideal King. He's sexy, powerful, socially conscientious and has a bangin' body under those business suits. That Michelle is one lucky woman!

SFBG: What song would be your court's anthem?
PDM: For the past several year's, I've been closely associated with Nelly Furtado's "Maneater" for obvious reasons. It just seems appropriate to keep that tradition alive. :::giggles:::

SFBG: Of what Queen would your reign most resemble? Elizabeth? The Queen of Hearts? Would you rule naughty or nice?
PDM: Honey, I'm definitely no 'Virgin Queen,' so that's out! I say be beautiful, respectful and conscientious in public and be as nasty as you want to be once those bedroom doors are closed. And anyone who kisses and tells...Off with their heads!

SFBG: Our majesty, what are your most prized possessions?
PDM: To be possibly too serious for a moment, I kicked a daily drug habit six years ago, and the peace of mind, serenity and faith that comes with sobriety is the thing in my life I cherish most -- well, that and my little Jack Russell Terrier, Piggy Del Mar! He's the love of my life and, unlike any other man I've met in my life, annoyingly loyal!

SFBG: And your most adored, cherished wardrobe pieces?
PDM: Several years ago, I was given an amazing necklace and earring set as a gift from a friend. It's something I could never have afforded on my own, and it's so gorgeous that I feel elegant every time I wear it. For sentimental reasons, I also have a pair of faux fur boot covers I wore the night I won the Miss Trannyshack Pageant in 2007. They get raves every time I put them on -- and remind me of a kick-ass night, too.
