Sydney AFAB Drag Icon SPACE HORSE sat down with our OG Pussy Posse member Mitch Ryan to chat all things Mardi Gras, Queerness, Drag and Fashion! 💕 🌈 ✨ 🏳️🌈
The theme for Mardi Gras this year is 'United We Shine', my question to you is how do you shine and how does the community shine?
We're very interested in your style in fashion in Drag and then outside of Drag... what does style mean to you as Spacey versus Geordie?
Those CROCS!!! Although I feel like the Crocs tiptoe into both your worlds...
You're an openly Queer woman in a Drag space which we've mentioned being kind of a gentlemen's club... what does it mean for you to be an openly Queer woman in this space?
... I'm wearing a jock strap you fucking bitch! HahahaThere's a place for that!!! It's just so often Queer women are swept under the rug. I constantly have to reassure people of my queerness... like no no no it's okay, I'm here too and we can all party together!
We've been best friends for a long time but I've never asked you... what was your first Mardi Gras experience like?
Was there a guest list to get into the curb? Who was performing?
ALRIGHT... close your eyes. Vodka Redbull in hand, you're in Dyspnea looking for a night out on Mardi Gras... where are we going?First of all, a party in the bedroom alone always. Then we're going to Ching-a-Lings for a Mojito if you're lucky... then straight onto Universal, straight onto the Newtown Hotel and ending it at the Imperial Erskineville!
I've searched TikTok for some ins and outs of 2022... are you ready?
Always, born ready!
Using the word camp: IN!
Hats: In, we love a hat!
Homophobia, Transphobia & Misogyny: Out.
La Niña: So out. We're done. Gaga said Rain on Me and I said Stop.
The colour green: In! We love.
The Black Eyed Peas: In Mama, In In In.
Quirky interiors: In but a light in. We're a little bit over it.
Drag: OUT. GET RID OF IT. It's so out... It's so uncomfortable but it is quite gorgeous.
Style beats fashion: Every time!
Why do you love Dyspnea and why are you wearing it for Mardi Gras?
