Tyra Wanks' triumphant drag debut

Posted in: Worth Checking Out
By Matt Akersten - 14th September 2009

Showstoppers: Judge Jonathan, winner Tyra, and hostess Tess
Auckland drag sister Tess Tickle only had one photo in her hand on Saturday night at K' Rd's Naval & Family pub - and she gave it to a brand new drag diva who had put a lot of effort into the bar's 'Drag Race' contest.

New sensation Tyra Wanks blasted onto the stage following her expertly-crafted preview video and high-impact flyer campaign at the bar.

Tyra now says: "A huge, huge, bigger than you can imagine thank you to everyone who came on Saturday night and screamed, shouted and even fog-horned it... thanks again, love Tyra."

Here are Tyra's hilarious 'magazine cover' flyers:




The judges also loved Tyra's shows - shown on the video clip below - so Tyra Wanks stays in the running in Tess's Drag Race contest at the Naval & Family happening for another few Saturday nights at 9:30pm. Good luck Tyra - we think you're fierce!
