As bars and clubs shutter around the world, drag queens are performing online to make up for lost income and keep their fans in good spirits during the coronavirus epidemic. From livestreaming shows from home to personalized Instagram raps for fans, some of the biggest names in drag, including “RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars Latrice Royale and Gia Gunn, are innovating to stay in touch with their millions of followers. New York City and Los Angeles – home to the United States’ two largest LGBT+ communities – ordered restaurants, theaters and bars to close on Sunday to slow the spread of coronavirus, which has killed almost 100 people in the country. “It’s really scary because I’m a small business as well as an … entertainer,” said Royale, a plus-sized queen famed for her friendliness and loud laugh, who has suspended all live bookings until further notice.
