If the words "famous Black drag queens" don't bring RuPaul to mind, you probably didn't read them correctly. But just because she's famous doesn't necessarily mean she's the best Black queen. Talented Black female impersonators are a force to be reckoned with the drag world, and they hail from all over the globe - from Los Angeles to New York, from Europe to Africa, from Sahara to Milan.

Who's your personal pick for the greatest Black drag queen of all time? Maybe you're a fan of Bob the Drag Queen, the winner of Season 8 of RuPaul's Drag Race. Or maybe you adore BeBe Zahara Benet, the Cameroon-raised queen who spun her Drag Race Season 1 victory into a music career.

Some of the most famous female impersonators are Black or African American, and you're sure to find them on this list. Vote your favorite performer up to number one!
