    “On the Spot: Georgia Brown, Miss Positively Beautiful 2010”

    What is the big drag event going on tonight?

    It’s the documentary about drag pageants. We are having Miss Diva of Tucson 2010 who is going to perform and speak which is a big deal because she is the best.

    What inspired your look?

    This actually came from the first Lena Horne in her first film role “”(Cabin) in the Sky”” as Georgia Brown, which is where I got my name.

    How did you get into this hobby?

    Right after I got my B.A. at UC Irvine in dance, I joined an all-male drag company that comes through here a few times. I had 18 fabulous drag queens teach me all about drag and I wasn’t on stage at that point, so I got into the drag scene here.

    What is your favorite song to perform to?

    “”Be Italian”” from “”Nine.””

    I have to ask you, how do you feel about Lady Gaga’s new single?

    It’s OK. It’s not my taste. I don’t particularly care for the Madonna sound. I do love Lady Gaga — just not this particular song. Maybe it will grow on me.

    If you were being born, what would you come out of?

    If I was being born, I would want to come out of the center of the stage on a swing.

    “”Moulin Rouge,”” your ultimate scene?

    Visually, anything Baz Luhrmann, just beautifully done.
