Rescheduled from March 2020, two-time Drag Race contestant Blair St. Clair returns to the UK this November – stopping off for one night in Wales at Cardiff’s Glee Club. After finding success on the American pageant scene, the baby-faced queen became the first to represent Indiana on the reality competition show, where she earned a sweet and naive reputation – memorable on Season 10 of Drag Race for her retro frills and love of Broadway, despite being allegedly named after Gossip Girl’s self-described “crazy bitch,” Blair Waldorf.
Fighting her inner demons on her original season (and topping the dance album charts when iTunes was still a thing) set the stage for Blair St. Clair to return – a new woman – on All Stars 5, where, despite no challenge wins, she made it to the final four, showcasing a new ‘mature’ wardrobe and tricks of the wig tech trade.
Hosted by Scottish drag artist Ru Jazzle and supported by Slay! queens, Blair’s appearance will include the usual VIP meet and greet, and with no social distancing at the venue, any photos you take with her may be moderately less awkward without a two-metre gap. (Usual health and safety precautions still apply, however.)
Glee Club, Cardiff Bay, Mon 1 Nov. Tickets: £20/£35 VIP. Info: 0871 4720400 / here
