Five questions for Yara Sofia, one of 12 RuPaul’s Drag Race alums chosen for RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race, a Puerto Rican princess who lives in a fairy tale.
DLNQNT: If you had your own fragrance, what would it be called and what would it smell like?
Yara Sofia: Yarah, and it will smell a lil bit oceanic… I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s not going to be toilet water!
What’s the most valuable advice your drag mother ever gave you?
You mean drag father? Edwin Irizarry told me once: “Everything you do must be beautiful — even creep things should look pretty. Eyes love beauty in all different kinds.”
If you threw up right now, what would probably come out?
Doritos and Cheetos! Besides salad, broccoli, fried chicken, etc. I can’t lay off chips — they’ve been a part of my diet since I was a kid.
Which celebrity do you look most like — as a lady and as a boy?
Depends on what I’m wearing; I have many drag looks, so I can’t name just one lady. However, as a boy people tell me I look like Johnny Depp — probably because I’m from the Caribbean, but I’m not a pirate.
Selflessly plug something that you have nothing to do with.
My current obsession is Once Upon a Time, transmitted on ABC. I think in real life we live in a fairy tale. It’s up to us to decide which character we want to play. I’m Maleficent…
