Sam Smith Gets Drag Queen Serenade After Oscar Win

by matt baume March 02, 2016

Sam Smith may not have known how many openly queer people have won Oscars, but at least he knows where gay tourists go when they visit L.A. He popped up at The Abby on Monday night for the regular weekly drag show, and Vicky Vox treated him to a rendition of her (at this point well-worn) hit, “This Boy is a Bottom.” At one point she rubbed his beard — hopefully he tipped well.

A video of the Abbey show posted to TMZ, and the comments there are, well, pretty much what you would expect for a comment section, so go check it out if Donald Trump’s victories aren’t enough to make you lose faith in humanity.

Vicky Vox, by the way, is one of those drag queens who should be world famous but inexplicably isn’t. She does a number involving a cigarette and her nose that has to be seen to be believed.

And to her credit, she noted Sam in the crowd and thanked him for taking a stand at the Oscars. “Thank you for taking a motherfucking stand, bitch,” she politely said. “That do take nerve.” For all the criticism Sam’s received for not knowing his Oscar trivia, at least his intentions were good. And in case the question comes up at some point again, he might want to take note that there have been somewhere over a dozen openly queer Oscar winners in the past.
