Pride Royalty


Queen of Pride - Gloria Goode

She's a drag queen, trans woman, and Dolly Parton aficionado. She is your Queen of Pride 2022, Gloria Goode! Growing up in small town Missouri I grew a quick wit and a penchant for raising a little hell. I've been performing in drag for almost four years and my signature style is a mix of camp and theatrics. When I'm not hosting my weekly show at Prism STL "Twirl Scouts" I am out connecting with my community. I understand the struggle of living a life without the support I needed to thrive as my authentic self. As Queen I promise to use my reign to help as many trans and queer people as possible feel accepted and loved as I can.
