Queen of Pride - Stephanie Six Trombones
It has been a year and a half since I started my drag career and I am constantly amazed at the opportunities I have been given. I am so incredibly thankful to be chosen as Queen of Metro East Pride. It is my goal to use this platform to reach out to as many different people that I possibly can and show them that they matter and are valued. I have a background in musical theatre and obsessed with anything Disney. I have worked jobs ranging from managing multi-millions in jewelry for Saks Fifth Avenue to working with the circus. You can catch me performing at The Grey Fox, Rehab, Bar PM, and many other venues.
King of Pride - Jaq Qrow
I am Jaq Qrow (Jacks Krow). I got my start in the wondrous world of drag in May of 2019. The stage has helped me along in my journey through transitioning FTM, developing friendships, and overcoming struggles with mental illness. I don’t shy away from music that is a bit more angry, creepy, or even a touch sad, but also include other genres. I use this platform and choice of music to work through my own highs and lows of life but also as a lighthouse for others to feel safe in expressing their own hardships and struggles. My goal is to help as many people as possible, to feel seen, understood, accepted, valued, and loved for who they are no matter the differences. I am honored and humbled to have been chosen as King. You can catch me performing at Club Escapade, Bubby and Sissy’s, Grey Fox, and Bar:PM. Remember, you are never alone, there are millions of us, just like you.
