Rose McGowan Raised by Drag Queens

"To this day, I only go to gay clubs. I'm perfectly at home there." -Rose McGowan, raised by drag queens.

Actress Rose McGowan reveals she ran away from home when she was 13, and soon found herself being taken in by a group of drag queens.

“At 13, when I was a runaway, I was taken in by the most amazing drag queens in Portland, Oregon. We didn’t always know where our next meal was coming from, but there was so much camaraderie and love.”

“Not to mention, those girls could paint a face, and I learned how because of them.”-Rose McGowan told The Advocate.

She made it clear that her experience with the drag queens is largely responsible for her love and respect for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people) community to this day.

“I could finagle my way into lots of different places. Whether it was how I danced or the way I looked, I was always quite celebrated in the gay clubs.”-Rose McGowan said.

The 38-year-old star whose sister is a lesbian, regrets not having experiences with other women when she was growing up.

“I disappoint myself. I’ve never even kissed a girl. Isn’t that funny? The girls I think are cute look like guys, but then I think, ‘But if they open their shirt, they’ll have breast.”-Rose McGowan admits.

Rose McGowan gives all her gratitude to the drag queens she was raised by as teenager
