"You can't make any money here," one drag queen said. "Doing drag isn't cheap. It is hard to do drag get makeup, dresses wigs jewlry etc when everyone in this town says we can;t pay you its a benefit."

      Reno used to be a big drag queen town when the casino cabarets and main showrooms had nightly shows and lots of entertainers.  Reno also had several drag bars where shows sometimes were even impromptu. Today no drag bar, less than a handful of drag queens, and far and few shows have changed the community.

Where have all the drag queens gone?
