Ivy Winters: Drag Race — CREEP MAGAZINE
Ivy Winters is the drag name of Dustin Winters, a contestant on the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race On the runway, Ivy's outfit commanded a. Date of Birth. Although eliminated on Episode 8, Ivy retains a special place in Drag Race herstory Yeah, Fusion set up a play date between Manila Luzon and year- old. RuPaul's Drag Race's new queen Jinkx Monsoon and fellow contestant Ivy so they're not dating are they? i stopped watching season 5 like halfway through.
The recent mom-written open letter on Huffington Post about drag queens being better role models than Disney princesses made me so happy. Have you read it? So yeah, I can see why kids would look up to drag queens. A lot of my fans are 12 or year-old girls or boys. Then it skips a bunch, and then a lot of middle-aged women [laughs]. Yeah, Fusion set up a play date between Manila Luzon and year-old, Joselyn, after the letter was published and it was so cute!
Manila and I go way back. Is it intimidating to know that more and more young people are now looking up to you as a role model?
I think of it as a blessing because I like to do drag to inspire people, no matter what their age. It gets stressful at times, to have all eyes on you, and you really have to watch what you put on the Internet. So I have to ask: Well, my first time watching it was live on TV.
I had no idea being there that he thought that. He never acted that way when we were filming. I just talked to him a week ago! And you can start having feelings for someone. Were these terms common in the drag community before Drag Race, or did RuPaul popularize them?
It depends on some of the terms.

Michelle [Visage] hates that! Why does it have to be fish? You look like a real girl! Can you tell me more about this? Ever since I was little, I was in love with stop motion animation or Claymation. I loved anything Tim Burton and I would always work on these little play sculptures and puppets and make these short little films. I would really love to do a little intro video or a stop motion of garments.
If I ever did a costume runway show, I would love to be able to film it live but also have stop motion garments. It would be so fun!
It's not something I held on to after we finished filming. I texted Ivy before the episode aired and I said 'You were so great with me, I think I may even have had a crush on you at one point' and she just replied 'Oh really?
Oh, you know, whatever! He and I get along great, so there's no hard feelings about any of that. Since we're on the subject, do you have a boyfriend? I refer to myself as 'chronically single'! I'm focusing on my drag career right now, and I want to give this opportunity my full attention.
It wouldn't be fair to anyone who would want to date me right now. They would have to put up with never seeing me, and when they do, always seeing me dressed like a year-old woman. I'm just going to wait until it happens naturally.
And now for the Miss America question: What do you hope to stand for as America's Next Drag Superstar? I spent a lot of time thinking about what I want this year to look like. I want to hold that crown for everyone like me who had to overcome life struggles, and work their ass off to achieve their dream. Whatever your dream is, you always have to try to go for it, at least once.
I also would love to work towards social change and equal rights, particularly gay marriage and discrimination at the work place. The gay rights movement hasn't ended: Even though we live a much more privileged life than our predecessors, the fight is not over.
EXCLUSIVE: Interview With Jinkx Monsoon
If you pay your taxes, you deserve the same rights as every other person. What are you going to do with your prize money? I'm going to open a college fund for my youngest brother, and I want to give enough money to my student loan company so they will just leave me alone for at least two years! I also want to put a little bit of it into trying to make an album.
What would that sound like? I could never make an album of dance music like Sharon Needles did. Why It Gotta Be Black? For the mini challenge, the girls donned afros and had a disco danceoff. Ivy did well though Roxxxy did say "Ivy has no stitch of rhythm in her body".
Jinkx and Coco won. The girls showed off their dance moves this week in the sickening new ballet "No Rupaulogies". Ivy was snapped up pretty quickly by Jinkx it was clear a friendship was growing as her first choice. Ivy was cast as Lady Bunny, who she had actually worked with before. Ivy was brilliant in the dance, when she performed alongside Jinkx as genderfuck Ru. They both were in the top that week. On the runway when asked to wear their most divalicious outfit, Ivy turned it.
Michelle said Ivy was "mindblowingly talented' and that her Lady Bunny was "hilarious". Santino's only critique was that her Lady Bunny was maybe too pretty!
Although Ivy was in the top, Alyssa won. Snatch Game Mini challenge: The girls were competing on the red carpet-Ru wore it best? Three people were given matching fabric- zebra, giraffe and pink. Alyssa, Detox and Roxxxy won the challenge.
