Laganja Estranja was interviewed by Jessica Gonzales for High Times. In the article, Estranja, “Spills the tea on medicating, advocating, and celebrating,” — just in time for pride!
Gonzales is clearly a fan of both drag and Estranja’s extensive drag career, resulting in a perfect mixture of cannabis talk and drag appreciation.
Laganja Estranja is a triple threat, just not in the traditional sense—then again, there’s not very much that’s traditional about her—working as a choreographer/cannabis activist/drag queen. She’s currently breaking boundaries as the first professional drag queen on So You Think You Can Dance and, in doing so, is barreling into the mainstream with a hefty load of taboo on her shoulders. Yet she’s still able to handle it with grace, intelligence, and strength, living by the credo that “drag chose me, I did not choose drag.” We chatted about weed, drag, dance, and being your true self.
Estranja discusses So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD), discovering her drag name, using CBD and traveling as a cannabis patients.
