First Family Of Drag: With Detox and Patty Sanderson

RuPaul’s Drag Race changed both the landscape of television and mainstream gay culture. One of the biggest stars to come out of the show is Detox.


Detox and her mama Patty took some time to talk with me about work/life balance, getting her start at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub, and why family is everything. #OrlandoStrong

One of my favorite moments in all the seasons of Drag Race was seeing Detox perform with her sister Heather, a friend of mine since we were kids. Not only did they win the challenge, they won the hearts of fans. The connection between the two of them was a wonderful example of what happens when families are truly built on unconditional love.
