Drag is becoming more popular than ever, but learning and perfecting the art form isn’t necessarily easy. If you’ve been thinking of getting into drag, but intimidated trying to find a place to begin, Sasha Velour is here to help.

According to Velour, the first step for aspiring queens and kings is to build a persona that is true to who you are.

“There is no point in doing it if it does not have a personal passion for you,” Velour told Jezebel. “It cannot be in pursuit of becoming a famous drag queen.”
