Drag Queen and Being Human: how an animal creates it for me!

Home / Admin Stories / Drag Queen and Being Human: how an animal creates it for me!

Today, Clanimal.com begins a series of portraits (which we hope will be lots of) of Drags and the animals playing an important part in their lives. If you perform as a Drag and you share your life with an animal that means the world to you, and that you would like to share this wonderful relationship with the world, contact us at “theguy@clanimal.com”, we will write a piece about you too!.

Clanimal.com therefore demonstrate that behind the character, there is the human with who the animal lives an unconditional love relationship. The animal serves as a mirror to humans since it feels a lot of emotions we have and helps us become better persons! 

Nana & Bucky...LOVE!

Nana & Bucky…LOVE!

(Clanimal.com)

Who is Nana? Tell us about the character:

(Nana)

Everything started when Mado (the famous Mado Lamothe) asked me to perform a Drag Queen number, in a contest, so I chose to perform as Nana Mouskouri;”

(Clanimal.com)

And how Nana evolved to become royalty?

(Nana)

It was a natural evolution to that character, I wanted to become the “Queen Mother” to all my fans”

Bucky through all of it, how is his life with a Queen?

(Nana)

“I wish to underlign that his name was chosen by the stars, since being the dog of a Queen, the name Buckingham was utmostly appropriate for him! His closest friends call him Bucky. we also looked at Windsy, for Windsor Castle, and Bucky has let me know that it was not in his aristocratic realm of names, therefore we chose Bucky”;

(Clanimal.com)

What does Bucky means to you?

(Nana)

“Bucky (with a look in her eyes filled with tenderness) he’s my son, he is like the children I will never have. He follows me everywhere and he also happens to stay very comfortable at home, because like me, he adores to do some cocooning at the “Palace”;

(Clanimal.com)

Tell us about Bucky’s personality:

(Nana)The one & only Bucky!

“bucky is the dog we all dream having. He is so respectful of others. As an exemple, when I eat, he stays right at my feet and he would never touch my plate. He never chewed on any of my shoes (like the other Queen, I have so many pairs!)”

“I will add however, that he went to “school” for about on and a half year, albeit in the last few months of schooling, he had mastered the dog etiquette so wel that we were only going there to socialize (lol). Bucky would make any mistress so proud, being such a gentledog…since I cannot say gentleman!”

(Clanimal.com)

Oh yeah…why?

(Nana)

“Because Bucky is not human and he will never be . Yes I see him as my “son” and he is more my “spiritual son” that a human one! On the other hand I believe that my personality influences his. I have a friend that is very nervous and his dog is so similar to him!”

(Clanimal.com)

Together, we feel so good!

Together, we feel so good!

Do Drags talk to each other about their pets?

(Nana)

“Obviously… we are like everybody else…well to say the truth…we are everybody else (laugh). We love to talk about our pets, being somewhat like the fishermen are with the size of the fish that got away…, talking about how intelligent they are, well behave, etc”;

(Clanimal.com)

“And if Bucky was to die suddenly, what effect would it have on you Nana?

(Nana)

“Oh my God…I know it will happen one day and I know I will be sad. I never had a pet before, Bucky is my first! So often, I feel that we understand each other so much!”

(Clanimal.com)

What do you mean? 

(Nana)

When I am sad, I know Bucky feels it from me. I can’t prove it and I know Bucky is more intelligent than I give him credit for. Sometimes, sitting at my desk working, I see him from the corner of my eye and he’s doing something funny to attract my attention…and I just crack up!”

“Sometimes, we just look at each other…the energy between us is like electricity, and I just know inside of me, that he understands me, and it makes me feel so good inside!.”

(Clanimal.com)

The Queen...and Bucky!

The Queen…and Bucky!

“And if Nana had a special wish for Bucky, what would it be?” 

(Nana)

Oh my god, that’s a tough question. I don’t know…For sure, i would like to “depart” after him and that we would meet somewhere in an other life…You know Bucky is so much part of my life. I would not see my life without him!”

Bucky, you are a dog spoiled by life and by Nana! And you Nana, you are the owner Bucky deserves. Together, you bring out the best of each other, and that’s why we end this interview saying: behind each great performer, unconditional love exist and there is no other living being than an animal to help us experience it!

Take very good care of each other, Nana and Bucky!
