To say Chi Chi LaRue has a presence that commands the crowd’s attention would be an enormous understatement. Already very tall, in punishingly high heels she towers above the crowd as they part like the Red Sea before Moses to allow her through.

She has just arrived to Evolution Wonder Lounge in Edmonton to DJ the opening night Big Bang party and I’m fortunate to have been granted an exclusive interview with her before she takes to the booth.

Even though she has arrived generously early, I’ve been instructed to keep my interview somewhat brief as Chi Chi likes to get a feel for the sound system and DJ booth set up to ensure there are no complications during her set. An example of her professionalism and thoroughness that has had adult film production companies and now nightclubs and festivals lining up to work with her.

On this evening, following the announcement of adult film stars Cameron Bay and Rod Daily coming forward as having tested positive for HIV, the latest in a string of cases that has resulted in the current moratorium on porn production in the greater Los Angeles area which serves as the industry’s epicentre, I am eager to get Chi Chi’s opinion on these developments.

"It’s so stupid, because I’ve been making porn for 29 years and I’ve used condoms ever since I started. There should be no moratorium, just put a fucking condom on your cock!"

We further discuss her parting ways with straight porn juggernaut Vivid for their refusal to require their actors to do just that. As a long time safe sex advocate, it is clearly a passion of Chi Chi’s and it’s great to see someone with her stature in the industry refuse to compromise her ethics on the matter.

The juiciest moments in the interview, however, happens when I ask for her opinion on the success of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

"Ru’s a great friend of mine and this next season is going to be insane!" Along with a hint at some insider knowledge as to how quickly the drama starts in the upcoming season, Chi Chi tells us who she believes will undoubtedly walk away with the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar!

To find out who Chi Chi thinks will take home the crown this year, along with a discussion on Chi Chi’s transformation from drag queen to porn czar to headlining DJ, watch the full video online.
