"My drag name comes from some Blu Hydrangea bush that is in my garden. My nanna told me that we had to plant it with a rusty nail so that it turns into a beautiful blue hydrangea. I love that story of something coming from a rusty dirty old nail into something beautiful which is kind of like me as a person. I came from someone who wasn’t so confident who was a little bit of a nerd into this glamourous colourful being - I love it." Blu Hydrangea explains her drag name on an ITW.
