Miss Coco Peru

Best Drag Show, August 2011
Wrinkles be damned. Miss Coco Peru, aka Clinton Leupp, is as radiant as ever. A 20-year veteran of the drag circuit, Coco—who’s replaced her impeccably coiffed signature red wig with a shorter, more chic model—still draws a sold-out crowd wherever she goes. Her monologues pillory pop culture, while her musical interludes consist of show tunes belted out in a mock Broadway style. In between she dispenses bits of wisdom gleaned from a colorful if not always easy life: the drag queen with a world-saving agenda. Be sure to catch her when she makes her yearly appearance at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center in Hollywood.
