''Falls Church is a really gay high school.... I had an interest in make-up and fashion, and instead of trying things out on my friends, I decided to try them out on myself.... I learned a ridiculous amount. I'd had no drag friends before.''
Tatianna (a/k/a Joey Santolini) a contestant on the current season of "RuPaul's Drag Race.'' She hails from nearby Falls Church, Virginia, and tells FCNP her back story and what it was like to compete as one of the show's dozen queens. Joey has survived five episodes so far, and exchanged a series of heated quips with with several of the show's strong-willed divas, most notably with Tyra Sanchez. Her hilarious impersonation of Britney Spears won great praise, but she has also had an uneven review of her stylistic choices. You can catch her on the Logo cable TV channel, or on the network's website. (Falls Church News Press) (RuPaul's Drag Race)
