Bag Ladies Queens 2007

Real Name : Sam Cronk

Year you were crowned Queen: 2007

Number of years you’ve ridden the Bus Tour: 13

Where did you get your Bag Ladies Name? My cat Flower had the middle name, a story for another time, of Aurora. My very first drag performance was “Sparkling Diamond” from Moulin Rouge. I also believe one diamond is never enough so i tacked on an S and AUROR DIAMONDS was born.

What is your spirit animal or your secret super power? My sport animal is a tiger. Kind of a loner. Strong willed. Also, if you mess with the ones I care for you get the claws along with my bite. My secret power is STYLE!

What is something about you people assume is true that isn’t? People assume I’m a bitch.

Who/What inspired you to ride the Bus Tour for the first time? From my first drag performance I’ve only ever raised money. After meeting Cadillac Barbie and Sequoia Pentecost I had no choice….err ugh! I meant I was so inspired and thrilled to join the Bus Tour!

What has been your favorite Bus Tour Theme? Valley of the Bag Ladies: The Sensational Sixties

Share your favorite memory of the Bus Tour? I have so many however most are not suitable to share. Especially the ones with Sequoia. But I would say the most memorable are the ones where I look better than Latrina and Sparkle.

Who is your favorite Bag Ladies Sister and why? Summer Clearance! You can almost always depend on her honesty and gratitude! Especially if you’re wearing some hideous and if she borrowed something!

Why did you want to be Bag Ladies Bus Tour Queen? I wanted to be Queen because I wanted to be a part of something great! Also I’m the youngest queen so I know I’ll outlive them all! 😉

What does “Once a Queen, always a Queen,” mean to you? It means to stand with my fellow queens for what ever may be next! We will always be here to fight and care for others.

What is your biggest accomplishment as Bag Ladies Queen or as a Former? The second Aurora Diamonds Little Drag Closet and raising money while on vacation in P-Town.

For what would you most like to be remembered? My impeccable fashion sense and youthful appearance! Oh! And my heels!

When a cure and a vaccine for HIV are discovered and HIV no longer exists, what will the Bag Ladies do next? A Bag Ladies work is never done! Maybe it’s the homeless issue or the war or drugs. Whatever it is we will be there to help!
