Did you know that X-men’s Dazzler is Bea’s main inspiration for getting up on stage and performing for a crowd? The bright lights! The big make up! The even bigger wigs! Watch Bea Dazzler give a nod to her namesake and live her dream of being a rock star… minus the mutant powers.
Sometimes Carebear, sometimes Godfather, always charming: Drag King Chaz Avery has been making a name for himself in the Left Coast Drag Collective scene since his debut in March of 2016 with his energetic live performances, and also by producing & hosting the well-loved King Fling extravaganzas and various other events throughout the city. He’s thrilled to bring to life a character from one of his earliest fandoms – a character that makes up for his uselessness with his handsomeness!
In a divet on their couch once lived a drag king. Not a clean, pristine, hard couch: it was a worn in couch, and that means comfort. It was meant for marathoning everyone’s favorite trilogy all in one go. That drag performer was Dublin Tendre. They have left their hole in the ground to take you on an epic journey. It’s a dangerous business, stepping outside your door and into the word of drag. Join Dublin on this adventure but careful! If you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you’ll be swept off to.
Ghost of Judith
It’s the dead of night,
You are awoken by a distant clapping sound
Out of the corner of your eye,
The sparkle of a rhinestone.
What is this, a burgler?
No its the Ghost of Judith!
Taking inspiration from 1980s horror films, Mad Max, and the femme fatales of sci-fi.
She is here to remind you that you are good enough just as you are, embrace what makes you different, and there is no such thing as too many hotdogs.
Another world, another time – In the age of wonder. A thousand years ago, this land was green, until the crystal cracked. A single piece was lost, a shard of the crystal. Now a young performer must embark on a treacherous journey to fulfill a prophecy to bring peace and make the drag community whole once more. Now let us hear your war cry for Gimmick!
Get ur sharpies out of the way – this babe is chockful of artistic inspiration and she aims to show it. Best known for her all around absurdity (a triple alliteration!) she is always ready to leave a mark, whether it’s with sharpie or with her performance. We are of course talking about everyone’s favourite fruit: Honey Dewme!
Rising from the ashes of the gender constructs they burnt to the ground, Van Damme is reborn this way! This former toxic drag king is rewriting their origin story, and their character arc is still a mystery… Are they a fully reformed & upstanding citizen? Sarcastic yet lovable antihero? Or maybe Van Damme is just the latest incarnation of a vulgar villain with some serious daddy issues? You’ll have to watch for clues in the secret scene at the end of the credits, and good luck avoiding all the spoilers on social media! Regardless of moral alignment, Van Damme is ready to rock their stretchiest spandex, and pack a big blast of party vibes wherever their drag powers are needed.
You buy expensive and look cheap or buy cheap and look expensive. Kittin Kaboodle is on a mission to improve their cosplay/drag skills with reused and unconventional materials aka your trash. Fandom favorites include but not limited to Sailor Moon, Slayers, DC Comics, and Disney.
On a quest to get the word of gender anarchy across the world of earth, Krystal Divination aims to give every character who crosses her in her lifetime the power to be their truest self and not be afraid to fight crippling curse of judgemental one sided mind ghouls and trolls whom are riddled with darkness.
Lola Maneata is a local legend: her immaculate costuming, head to toe looks and jaw-dropping talents. Lola finds inspiration in pop culture and turns it into divination. Don’t miss your chance to catch a glimpse of this magnificent performer!
Misster Mortecai & Gay Jastby
Prepare for trouble and make it double… They’re here, they’re queer, they’re gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide! The sun and moon, the angel and devil on your shoulder, the human embodiment of a crack fic, here to bring you bullshit, Bentleys, and be-bop, it’s Gay Jatsby and Misster Mortecai!
