Pride Royalty

2019 and 2020

Queen of Pride - Roxie Valentine

I'm a horror/glamour queen that has been making splashes in the St. Louis drag scene for the last 5 years. In that time she’s been able to travel the state of Missouri and to various cities. Roxie’s influences come from classic horror movies, pop culture, and the fashion of today’s pop stars. In addition to Metro East Queen of Pride 2019 and 2020, this beauty has earned a few additional titles including Miss Gay City of Roses Missouri USofA, Miss Gay Tattoo the Lou and Mx. C. U. Next Tuesday. Roxie’s goal each time she graces the stage is to entertain you as either a drag monster or as the campy blonde girl (who would die first in the horror movie). You can catch her performing at locations such as Leos, Bubby and Sissy’s and Grey Fox Pub. Follow her journey on Instagram @roxie_valentine.

King of Pride - Kameo Dupree


I am Kameo Dupree! I've been dabbling in the world of male illusion for approximately 10 years now.  During this time, I have competed in local, state, and national pageants, hosted shows,  served as show director,  and mentored some Male Illusionists in the art of illusion. My performance style is everything under the sun but I hold a special liking for blues, county, and gospel.
