My 2nd Performance – Masochism Tango

When I found out it was broadway the next week I was nervous! The competition, Harrisburg Amateur Drag Race, was thick and I was up against a very strong queen, Aida Snatchwell. I knew that she has done tons of Broadway themed shows and it seemed to me she had more experience than me, even…

Drag is a form of Gender Expression

Drag has changed my life! It is part of my gender expression. Being a Drag King is part of who I am.Not only has it introduced me to some pretty dam amazing people but it has also given me an outlet. A real honest to god outlet that feels good in a way that leads me to more balanced places. Izzy keeps me sane!

For some unknown reasons living every day as simply a butch female just isn’t masculine enough.
