Indica Sativa is the weed (drag) queen of your dreams

Behind the Drag aims to showcase the off-stage lives of some of America's most talented drag queens. The intimate series gives us the opportunity to meet the people behind our favorite over-the-top drag queens.

Indica Sativa is a drag queen from New Orleans living in Los Angeles who says her tagline is, "I'll get you high because I can get you high with weed or I can get you high with my performance, or both."

Before moving to the City of Angels, she read a survey that said the No. 1 thing you smell in the city is weed, and from there, she started to build her character. However, she says weed has been a part of her life since she was 14 years old. For her, the drug helps her cope with anxiety and focus on just being herself. 

"Weed is something that is a huge part of my life, but it's not completely why I do drag and it's not the only thing about me. But, at the same damn time, if you're ever around me, I'm probably smoking you out," she says.

Indica Sativa is the creator of her own shows and currently works with a company to promote their pens through marketing and hosting events, something she calls a dream job. When she's performing, however, she says she is solely focused on entertaining and loves to perform her favorite songs by Ludacris and Webby.

    Just a few days before Disney World enters its phased reopening on July 11, one particular attraction at the theme park seems to have gone rogue.On July 8, CinemaBlend reported that the park had conducted a test of its Carousel of Progress attraction at Tomorrowland.where its main animatronic character John recently appeared to spaz out on stage.An 18-second clip of that moment surfaced on Twitter, where it promptly led to some hysterical meme.“John clearly hasn’t been rehearsing during his vacation time,” the Magic Blitz Podcast joked on the social media platform.Several users took the opportunity to set the clip against some audio. One person, shared the clip set against rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s single “GOOBA”.All of this is to say that the pandemic, which temporarily shut down Disney’s attractions, clearly took a toll on poor John.But under Disney’s reopening guidelines (along with a bit of repair), the animatronic will hopefully be able to see new life again
