Drag Queen Directory – Celebrity Impersonators

Drag Queen Directory
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here are two worlds that collide in West Hollywood: the world of glitzy, glamorous celebrity and the world of drag.

And nowhere do they come together better than in WeHo’s drag queen celebrity impersonators. From Bette and Barbra to Madonna and Whitney, we have our divas covered.

We’re not just talking about a wig-wearing lookalike: impersonators like Chad Michaels, Delta Work, Shannel and Jasmine Masters know how to get inside the heads of the celebrities they mimic.
Their convincing likenesses are just another part of what makes WeHo the epicenter of fascinating L.A. culture.

Although WEHOville’s search for the area’s most amazing celebrity impersonators led us primarily to drag performers, there was one notable exception: the incomparable Calpernia Addams, a transgender actress with an incredible life story and a nearly fanatical devotion to Marilyn Monroe.
