Laganja Estranja, you probably know her from Season 6 of Rue Paul's Drag Race. Well, behind every fierce queen's face, is an even a badass boy! For those of you who may not know, Laganja Estranga or Jay Evan Jackson is an American choreographer and drag queen based in Los Angeles, California.
I personally never watched more than season 1 of Rue Paul's Drag Race, but I did know of Laganja from I guess word of mouth. Nevertheless, I was very excited to have her tell her story on the show.
As with any guest who comes on LGBT Stories that has some sort of notoriety or fame, I'm not looking for stories of glitz and glam. I want the guest to go to a more intimate place with us. I love it when the guest finishes up their stories and tell me how "that was the best thing they have ever done" for themselves. There is something very powerful about sharing our true authentic self with others! I am blessed to be able to provide a space where my guest can experience this.
Ok, back to Laganja! She starts her story off by telling us about the boy who started it all, little Jay. From sports to ballet as a young kid, to preforming drag professionally, releasing new music this year, stepping away from all things Drag Race, and struggling with alcoholism, Jay, or, Laganja is a force to be reckoned with!
