JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s drag queens have found themselves confined to their homes amid a nationwide virus lockdown, their elaborate wigs and glittery dresses languishing in the closet.
Two of them decided to make the best of it by putting on a variety show in their own living room.
First broadcast on Facebook, the show was recently picked up by a TV network. Tal Kallai, who goes by the stage name Talula Bonet, and fellow drag queen Yuval Edelman, known as Ziona Patriot, perform musical numbers and trade jokes around a table packed with bottles of disinfectant.
In one episode, Kallai shows how to apply lipstick to the outside of a face mask.
