Although Walter Cole came to drag relatively late in life—first trying out women's clothing in his late 30s—he hasn't let that slow down his drag persona, Darcelle XV. She's been strutting across the stage in a foot-high blond bouffant wig since the 1970s, delighting and titillating audiences along her way to becoming the West Coast's oldest female impersonator. Her nationally known drag cabaret troupe, Darcelle & Company, makes its home in Portland. At Darcelle XV Showplace, Roxy LeRoy—Cole's longtime partner—choreographs revues starring 12 fellow drag queens, including former Miss Gay Portland Summer Lynn Seasons, the needs-no-introduction Liza, and Felicity “The Electricity” Carmichaels, who should be thanked daily for having such a fun name. Check out their performances Wednesday through Saturday, or head to some of Portland’s other landmark gay destinations for drinks, dancing, and Underwear Nights.Read More
