(Drag) Queen of Hearts: Roxy C. Moorecox’

Drag queen Roxy C. Moorecox is my fairy godmother. I first called her last April when I was writing a cover story for Creative Loafing on the local drag scene in Charlotte. She became my guide to all things marabou-feathered. I called her with questions almost every day. She always answered without a hint of annoyance or exhaustion — including the time I literally woke her up. I even called her while she was hosting Trivia Tuesday. She held her cell phone up to the audience, saying, “Everyone, say hello to Joanne!”

When I asked Roxy to perform for my birthday last December, she planned an intimate cabaret-style set at The Bar at 316 for my friends and me.
