NYC's top drag queens predict the LGBT nightlife award winners

We asked the drag queen nominees for 2015 Entertainer of the Year who should nab the top prize at the Glam Awards

By Ben Lerman

How do you quiet down a room full of drag queens? Nominate them for an award. In 25 categories, from Best Promoter and Best Club Night to Best Bartender and Best Go-Go Boy, the Glam Awards celebrate excellence in almost all areas of NYC LGBT nightlife. NYC's own Drag Race winner and multiple Glammy winner Bianca Del Rio will host the show and hopefully read the nominees to shreds. While the Oscars cut most of the performances from its annual show, the Glam Awards has a ton of performers taking the stage, including Will Sheridan, Big Dipper, Sweetie, Aquaria, Bootsie Lefaris, Mila Jam, Miz Cracker and Monica Blewinsky. As the anticipation builds for crowning this year's Entertainer of the Year, we asked some of the 2015 nominees who should nab the top prize.
