Barbra Wyre is an American drag performer best known for competing on the second season of Camp Wannakiki.

About[]

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Barbra Wyre is a young, gorgeous, talented, funny, smart, skinny, eccentric, eclectic, entertaining, enigmatic, egotistical, naive and narcissistic queen who's ready for anything that nature throws at her! Except bugs, bugs can choke. She has NEVER been camping before but is so excited to trade in smog-filled L.A. air with “fresh” Camp Wannakiki air!

Barbra got her start in the tight knit downtown Los Angeles drag community and has since expanded her “talents” onto stages in West Hollywood and Palm Springs. Even though she isn't the most seasoned queen in the bunch, she knows that she can hold her own against some of the campiest queens in the country! Will she be Queen of Camp? Watch and find out![3]

Drag Name Origin[]

Her drag name is a pun on "barbed wire". Barbra states that the name came from the film Barb Wire starring Pamela Anderson but in actuality, Barbra admits that the name came from a "Buzzfeed drag name generator".[4]
