Queen of the Week - Sonique

: Sonique aka Jason Edwards

Age: 26

Location: Atlanta, Georgia

Single or taken? Taken. ( pretty much married)

What is your drag style like? It changes from day to day, I never like to put myself in "a box" but I do enjoy my leather and metal accessories, I love any animal print I like to mix and match , I'm a rocker. :-)

How long does it take you to get ready in drag? It can take me anywhere from 30minutes to 1hour and 30 minutes maybe longer depending on how dramatic I want to be.

Do you have a favorite number you perform? I have a few that I enjoy, recently I have been doing" Te Amor" by Rihanna but my all time favorite would have to be Peaches "Boys wanna be her" or my Catwoman mix that I made a few years back.

Where can we see you perform? I'm pretty much all over Atlanta, GA. Blakes on the Park on Mondays. Shout on 14st on Tuesday. Club Jungle on Wednesdays, The Heretic on Thursdays. and on the weekends I travel around the US on the weekends.

How did you first get into drag? I guess I have always been in drag, I use to get into trouble for wearing my sisters clothes when was a kid, The first time I ever dressed up and went out I was 18 and I went to a gay club, it was awful but I didn't think so then, I didn't really get into performing until I turned 21, so I have been doing it of 5 years.

Who have been your biggest inspirations? I'm inspired by most everyone I meet but I like what i like and I love learning from people. I like the classic movies ,The 80's , super hero chicks, PINK, MADONNA, LADY GAGA, Anime, Rock music, and bright colors and rhinestones.

What would be your three biggest tips for a new drag queen? learn as much as you can because drag is forever full of tricks and shortcuts. Never be afraid to try something. If you have to ask if it looks good, it probably doesn't so take and learn from the critiques'.

If you could perform anywhere in the world where would it be and why? Saturday Night Live because thats where all my favorite singers have performed!!!!

What is something that might surprise us all about you?  I'm a transexual and held off on my transitioning to be on Rupaul's Drag Race. It was so hard on me to do that, and I'm glad I did, but I'm a much pleasant person now that I'm back to my transitioning.

What makeup items could you not live without? Lip gloss, Liquid liner, mascara , Full coverage (MAC) ,301 Eye lashes, and clown white.

Do you design any of your clothes, create any of your wigs, etc? I love making costumes, I'm not the best with wigs, but I do add extensions and cut a few pieces every now and again.theres not much I can't do when it comes to drag.

What has been your all time greatest moment in drag? I think seeing myself on TV for the very first time it all seemed like a dream and it has been a blessing. I'm very thankful.

What else should we know about you? I'm a lead singer/rapper in a rock band.
