Published on 06/25/2022 07:09 Article written by With the arrival of the program “RuPaul’s Drag Race France” on france tv slash, franceinfo asked Minima Geste to analyze the influence of the show on the square drag queens in France. Long awaited by fans of the American version, the show “RuPaul’s Drag Race France” is broadcast on france·tv slash from Saturday June 25, the day of the LGBTI+ pride march in Paris. This is the French adaptation of the American program launched in 2009 by RuPaul, and which has lasted for fourteen seasons in the United States. Popularized around the world by Netflix, it has put a spotlight on the drag queen scene. And seduces a wide audience, both with its sewing, make-up or playback challenges, which must crown the best drag queen, as with its messages of inclusion and tolerance. In France, there was “a before and after” the arrival of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, confides to franceinfo Minima Geste, a performer who performs in particular during lotto evenings or blind tests. “When I started, in 2015, we were a lot in small gay bars, in the Marais district of Paris, very community places,” she says. “In 2022, we feel there is an expansion to other places that previously would not have welcomed us.” One of its headquarters is now a restaurant in the Bercy business district, where families and couples, both heterosexual and LGBT +, meet: “Sometimes women come to see me at the end to ask me for makeup advice. ” Originally from Toulouse, Minima Geste is also very committed. Like her elders who, before her, advanced the rights of LGBT + people from the 1960s across the Atlantic. “For me, being drag brought me acceptance and liberation, details the one who, once without her heels, becomes Arthur again, an engineer by profession. “My character is what my undercover self does not dare be. Drag is ‘fun’, and I love having the ‘smile’, but it’s also a reminder of important fights in the community. (…) It’s a voice that I manage to carry better in Minima.” Share: Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Share by email Share the link
