List Rules Vote up the fishiest, most sickening NYC queens who ever tucked.

There's something special about New York drag queens - they seem to have a unique blend of beauty, comedy, and attitude. Some of the most famous queens of all time hail from NYC, like Lady Bunny, Bianca Del Rio, and the original superstar herself, RuPaul.

Queens from NYC are some of the best female impersonators in all different facets of drag. New York queens compete in some of the most prestigious pageants on the planet, and strut through world famous clubs like Industry, Pieces, or Boots & Saddle.

Here they are, the best New York queens of all time, including high-class New York female impersonators, modern Drag Race crown-bearers, and bears of a different era. You just might find yourself singing, "These high heel shoes are longing to sissy that walk/Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York..."
