About this project
UPDATE: Watch future episodes of Cooking with Drag Queens before anyone else does, by simply making a donation to this campaign.
If everyone who saw this pledged just $1, we would have been funded already.
Cooking with Drag Queens is a hit! With over one million views since it officially launched, this original reality web series is taking the world by storm. Season One was an all-you-can eat buffet of tantalizing drag queens and food, but people are hungry for more so now is the time to pop Season Two into the oven and get it funded for an early spring 2016 delivery.
Some of you are saying “I know what a cooking show is, but what’s a drag queen?” A drag queen is anyone who can transform themselves into a beautiful creature of their own creation! And boy do we have some beauties lined up for you!
Season Two of Cooking with Drag Queens will feature the freshest of talent our “dragnet” can catch. We are talking with some amazing entertainers that'll surely whet your appetite as we follow them with our cameras and then bring them into the kitchen to set it on fire.
But it’s only going to happen if we get funded.
Our friend Alaska 5000 says that “when you tip a drag queen a dollar, you’re sharing a moment with that queen,” well, when you help fund Cooking with Drag Queens, you’re sharing a “drag inspired moment with the world.”
So it’s time to turn up the heat and make this world sizzle.
But before we get started on a second season we’ll need the following ingredients:
- Professional multi-camera crew.
- Lighting & Sound technicians.
- Video editors and direction.
- Food to prepare.
- Travel and Accommodation costs.
You’ll get to know your favorite drag queens better as we explore their world and then bring them into the kitchen to set it on fire.
While creating the first season, we discovered exciting new talent that we’d love to showcase for season two. What’s really exciting is some legendary queens have expressed interest in whipping something up in the kitchen and sharing some old family recipes handed down from their drag mothers. Yes godnessa!
The drag queens, as always, will be the inspiration for the recipes we create and we’ll continue to add a tasty twist to the classics, combining flavors and cultures in exciting new ways. We think you’ll love what we have in store for you!
If you’d like to see more programming with drag queens, this is your way to share it with the world.
Our goal is $25,000 to produce Season Two with at least 10 drag queens, but if we go over our target, we’ll add even more episodes with more gals. Give big to support the project and you’ll get great rewards: Cooking with Drag Queens aprons, tote bags, t-shirts and more at our big gay bake sale with homemade goods- fresh form our oven and into your mouth.
With your support, Cooking with Drag Queens will be a community funded, broadcast quality program. Every show will be free to watch online, to anyone around the world.
We’ll introduce so many new and amazing gals to the world. The drag queens deserve it, and so do you.
Please share this video with your friends, blog about it, or send in your own testimonial video in drag.
Risks and challenges
The answer to all of life’s challenges is always the same - more drag! A smear of lipstick and a wig teased all the way to heaven go a long way.
But, in addition to that, there are key ingredients to creating a successful cooking show: testing recipes; interviewing, selecting and scheduling the guests; and delivering the series in a regular and timely manner.
We lost or director/editor last year but we were lucky enough to find a brilliant new one who has signed on for season two.
Thankfully, we aren’t doing this project alone- we’ve built an amazing team that is just as passionate about drag and food as we are, from photographers to food stylists to a sexy dish crew that just loves to clean up our messes. Oh dish crew!
Since 2005, we’ve had the pleasure of interviewing the world’s top drag queens and introduced fabulous new talent on our award winning podcast, Feast of Fun. We’ve recorded over 2200 podcast so you know we have the drive and determination to put all the pieces together and carry through on our promise to continue this web series.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
