Twelve. Years. Ago. Today. My life took an amazingly, beautiful turn into professional dragland.
Prior to this, i had been doing drag just not calling it that for 3 years.
The Miss LifeWalk Pageant was the first time i claimed and called myself a queen. That small, seemingly insignificant moment in a pool surrounded by my friends where i said, “i’ll represent the Resource Center in the drag pageant” radically and drastically changed my
i wrote not one but two books on drag.
i won the first ever Diva USofA prelim to exist AND the 1st Miss USofA Diva. My drag mom Joe S Hoselton won shortly after and we were the first to reign together.
i got to wear a USofA crown made by the system’s original designer, the late great The DragonLady Earring Company. It was an honor of a lifetime and dream come true.
i judged hundreds of pageants with my crowing jewel being the 1st Diva and AFAB female to judge USofA Nationals, under the incomparable, Jerry Bird 🙏🏽.
i got to dance and travel with my bestie, 2 queens performing at Bud Light’s Up For Whatever weekend in CO.
i started the world’s first high fashion, haute drag magazine, GAG Magazine.
i met and married my wife C.C. Col.
i met and married, myself.
So much. Drag has given me so much.
And every time i start to think our relationship has reached the end, drag pulls me back in.
i’m excited to see what glass ceilings we’re going to bust through next. ✊🏽🪞👸🏽
Love you, drag.
