“Drag, for me, is really about finding and showcasing power in all of the things I was told made me weak throughout my life…and living the fantasy of the female characters that shaped my youth. When I was really young; and didn’t know what being gay meant, I didn’t think I was allowed to like boys. So, I created an alter ego for myself, whom I named Tiffany, that I could imagine being with all the boys I was crushing on, and I would draw her all the time. The name stuck because I’ve always been super drawn to powerful femininity, and I couldn’t tell you why ‘Tiffany’ has always really exuded that to me. ‘Diamond’ then comes from my love of old Hollywood glamour and film…but I am also really inspired by designer dolls…and if Tiffany Diamond doesn’t sound like the name of the doll you keep in a collectors’ box on a top shelf, I don’t know what does…haha!
You can find me performing all over Chicago and the greater Midwest area…and I co-host shows at Big Jim’s on Fridays and Charlie’s on Saturdays. You’ll also be able to catch me at RuPaul’s DragCon NYC. If you see me, be sure to say hello!”
