Lady Bunny (born Jon Ingle, August 14, 1962)[1] is an American drag queen, nightclub DJ, promoter and founder of the annual Wigstock event. She is a longtime friend of RuPaul. She has also released disco singles such as "Shame, Shame, Shame!" and "The Pussycat Song". She has appeared in films such as Party Girl, Wigstock: The Movie, Peoria Babylon, Starrbooty, and To Wong Foo.

Career

Lady Bunny began her career alongside Larry Tee and RuPaul as a fixture on the Atlanta gay scene[2] and appeared in a variety of low-budget films with them, including the Starbooty series. Moving to New York City in 1984, Lady Bunny organized Wigstock[3] in 1985, an annual drag queen festival that lasted until 2005. Bunny frequently performs at XL Nightclub with Bianca Del Rio.

Bunny was featured in the web series Queens of Drag: NYC by gay.com in 2010. The series featured fellow New York drag queens Bianca Del Rio, Dallas DuBois, Hedda Lettuce, Mimi Imfurst, Peppermint, and Sherry Vine.

Music

Her style of drag performance usually involves lip-synching to a compilation of karaoke versions of popular songs over which she has recorded her own vocals singing parodies of the original lyrics. The new lyrics are usually sexually explicit or revolve around food, or both. For instance, her parody of the Gwen Stefani song Holdback Girl has the lyric "I shit a

banana/a banana in my ass!"

Lady Bunny has released video parodies of "Santa Claus is coming to town" and California Gurls titled West Virginia Girls. Her January, 2011, parody of "Harper Valley PTA", entitled "The Ballad of Sarah Palin", lampooned the American politician as portrayed by Palin imitator Dorothy Bishop. On July 1, 2013, Lybra Records released remixes of Lady Bunny's collaboration with Wayne Numan,[4] "Take Me Up High"[5] which became her first Billboard Club/Dance hit peaking at #17 in September 2013. In October 2014 she released "Lately" (Remixes) her collaboration with New York City Producers and club DJ's Sean Grasty and DJ Rikky Rivera better known as Groove Addix. Lady Bunny's vocal of "Lately" is already creating a buzz globally in the underground club scene (pre-release) with explicit lyrics "Pussy this good/Dont wait around for no man-Pussy this good/Dont wait for no nobody." "Lately" is being released on the UK House label Enriched Records which is owned by Rich B a well known Dj/Artist on London's gay club scene.

Television

In 2005, she was a roaster on the Comedy Central roast of Pamela Anderson and released her first DVD, Rated X for X-tra Retarded.

RuPaul asked Lady Bunny to be a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race. Bunny declined it but took interest in the spin-off series, RuPaul's Drag U. Bunny served on the judges panel on RuPaul's Drag U, which aired on the Logo TV network from 2010 to 2012. Lady Bunny was Dean of Drag and had a role of judge in the first season. In season 2 of RuPaul's Drag U, the Dean of Drag role was expanded into a segment called Lady Lessons. As Dean of Drag, she was offering the contestants advice on beauty, fashion and social skills. Bunny's advice is always peppered with semi-clever double entendres and a segment will often end with an insinuation that she will be having her way with one of the experts that's been part of the lesson.

Alaska impersonated Lady Bunny during Season 5's Snatch Game, winning praise from Ru and the other judges, and a place in that week's top three.

In 2003, Lady Bunny made a guest appearance in the Sex and the City episode "Boy, Interrupted", as the emcee at the LGBT prom.
