“I’m a drag queen, multi-instrumentalist, fashion designer, and queerdo from Phoenix, AZ. About 2 and a half years ago, I started this crazy journey in drag, in an attempt to liberate myself from the traditional, sometimes suffocating nature of music school, where I studied jazz music on both the drum set and upright bass. Through drag, I’ve found the perfect way to blend my love of music, fashion, performance art, and all things punk in one spot while providing an outlet for my queer angst and passion for gay shit! Recently I was a competitor in Alaska Thunderfuck’s Drag Queen of the Year pageant, where I got the opportunity to showcase all of these ideas at once- singing live, playing upright bass, choreography, and a drum solo, all with the help of a full live band. And one year before that, I won the Boulet Brothers’ Dragulaworld stage competition over RuPaul’s DragCon weekend in 2018.
I hope to inspire others to take risks in their life and in their expression… and show the world that drag queens, and all LGTBQIA+ folk, can accomplish more than could ever be expected of us. You can catch me in Phoenix every Tuesday night at The Queer Agenda…and playing drums in my most recent music project: Hyperbella. Our debut self titled album is available now on all major streaming platforms.”
