Week 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race featured a Golden Girls challenge inside a prison. South Florida’s own Latrice Royale won the challenge and with it a cruise for 2 courtesy of AlandChuck.travel (a Florida based company).  The queen who sashayed away was Puerto Rico’s own Madame Laqueer, who sat down with us Tuesday morning for an interview.

At what age did female impersonation become an interest?
When I was 18, because I was directing a play in college that had to do with the gay nightlife and theatre became an interest. I wanted to give myself a 19th birthday present so I got ready to do my first show.

How did you pick your name?
Originally Madame was a character from the 80’s on a soap opera in Puerto Rico. LaQueer because it was my favorite TV show (Queer as folk) and Queer has a double meaning. And hence I have a mysterious name.

How did you go about getting on “RuPauls Drag Race?” Tell me about the experience?
I have known about it since the first season, but I couldn’t audition. I auditioned for the 2nd & 3rd season and didn’t make the cut, and they finally picked me for the 4th season.

It’s a great experience because we as drag queens get to know other drag queens from around the country and learn different styles, etc. It’s also great to have the world know who you are and of course it’s amazing to just be on the stage with Ru Paul. It was my dream come true!

Who do you want to win?
My girl for the winning is Kenya due to Puerto Rican Pride. However, I would love to have Chad take the crown home because she is such a polished queen and a true superstar! She is a beautiful person on the inside and the outside.

Tell me about the man behind Madame LaQueer?
Carlos is the nerd form school who always gets picked last and is very nice but misunderstood. It doesn’t take very much to get on his good side. He likes to have a good time and relax. He is always searching to get to know different cultures and new knowledge.

Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you?
I am a digital mixer; I have a bachelor’s degree in computer programming and I am a nerd and a gamer.

What’s ahead for Madame LaQueer?
Lots of travelling and I will be searching around for what I like. I am thinking of making a YouTube fun channel.
