In this installment of “Getting To Know Your Bad Bitches” we hear from performer Chantel Swallows. In her own words Chaunteel Swallows ” Chaunteel is my bad-bitch alter-ego. Chaunteel does/says as she pleases with no regard for what ‘Preston’ (my boy name) has to think about it… On a more serious note, I do like to play around with gender roles in my performances. I believe women are the most beautiful things every created; their beauty is unmatched by anything else. I like to poke-fun-of and exaggerate female qualities and bring light to the ridiculous gender and sexual stereotypes women face. Of course, you  have never met a ‘biological woman’ similar to Chaunteel, which is kind of the whole point of drag. As Noxeema Jackson says, in the movie To Wong Foo, ‘When a gay man has WAY too much fashion sense for one gender, he is a drag queen.'”
