"We're The Backyard Queens Honey!"
On this episode, we interview Glam Punk Tejana Drag Queen & Bushwig Co-Founder, Horrorchata. Chata's story is a winding road that began in San Antonio. As a child, her father would dress her up as a clown to assist him at his gigs, blowing up balloons & standing in for him when he wasn't available. Her mother, a wedding planner, contributed to her highly organized nature. Eventually, she moved to Austin, where she began to experiment with drag. After moving back home for a bit, she eventually boarded a one-way flight to New York City & the rest is history!
Over the years, Chata has established herself as an international Drag Queen & DJ. In 2012, along with Baabes Trust, she co-founded Bushwig. Now in its seventh year, Bushwig has evolved beyond Chata & Baabes' wildest dreams. The drag festival has traveled around the United States, had it's first stint in Berlin this summer, and might just make it to Mexico City in 2019. What began as an idea while wig shopping, has transformed into a cultural phenomenon, solidifying Chata's legacy as a leader & legend in our community!
