"In November of ‘92 I walked into a club in Cleveland with my drag mother and was informed that I would be doing the show that night. I was extremely nervous since the audience had been known to throw change at bad entertainers. I got through the number, no change thrown, went upstairs cried and swore I would never do that again. Twenty years later I am still entertaining and loving every minute."

"From the moment I saw my first drag queen, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. Drag is magical and beautiful to me."

"So many crazy things have happened to me that I can’t even fathom happening to regular people. I travel the country performing and hosting, and that’s my career."
