Leigh has been touring the world and elsewhere impersonating Elvis (as the renowned Elvis Herselvis), John Travolta, Liz Taylor, Jack Nicolson, Eydie Gorme, and Mamma Cass to name but a few. She will be playing John Goodman's Dan in "ROSEANNE: Live on Stage" along side Heklina, D' Arcy Drollinger, Steven LeMay and many other SF legends, opening in Sept.

A fearless musician, playwright and singer by nature, trixxie writes
and plays all the instruments on her own songs and performs them as theatrical pieces, mixing her talent for acting and directing together with her original music and experimentalist philosophies regarding current events, religion, politics and the meaning of life. As a faux queen*, miss trixxie carr performs solo or with dancers either lip-syncing or singing live in a mix of comedy-burlesque-performance art. Obsessed with existentialist despair yet a hopeless optimist, trixxie is never afraid to look at the subtext of our words and actions on an intimate and global level, and she attacks with wit and satire the phallacies of blind belief, while still embracing emotion and romanticism, using imagery and metaphor to connect her ideas and reach out to her audiences.

Heklina gained fame as Trannyshack’s erstwhile MC, keeping a tight rein on the chaos with her unflappable humor and sparkling wit. She is a premier hostess and DJ for hire around San Francisco, and has graced the Folsom St. Fair, Castro St. Fair, Gay Pride Main Stage, Castro Theater, and Halloween Main Stage, in addition to hosting numerous fundraisers for, among others, PAWS, Project Open Hand, AIDS Housing Alliance, Haight Ashbury Free Medical Clinic, Bay Positives, Lyric, the AIDS Emergency Fund, the UCSF Positive Health Project, Community United Against Violence, and Marriage Equality.  She has been seen on the E! Entertainment Network, NBC’s“Trauma” “The Cho Show”, VH1, “Playing it Straight”, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show”, BBC Television’s “Around the World in 80 Raves”, the Scissor Sister’s “Filthy Gorgeous” video, and as a guest on the Jerry Springer and Ricki Lake shows. She recently, in 2011, introduced Britney Spears for Good Morning America. Her film credits include the festival favorites Baby Jane? and All About Evil. Theater credits include a starring role in the 2006 Theater Rhino production TROG!, and producer and featured actor (in the role of Dorothy Zbornak) in the popular San Francisco Golden Girls plays. She was voted Community Grand Marshal of the 2004 San Francisco GLBTQ Pride Parade, and was the subject of two documentaries in the 2005 Frameline SF Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. In 2009 she won the Pride Creativity Award for outstanding artistic contribution to the LGBT Community. Check her out at

Monique Jenkinson is a performer and maker of performance whose work explores femininity, glamour and process in theaters, nightclubs and museums.

Her past solo shows Faux Real and Luxury Items have played in NYC, London, New Orleans & Seattle after sold-out local runs, and have earned her many accolades, including a 2009 GOLDIE for Performance. Her drag queen persona, Fauxnique, a fixture on the experimental performance scene, made history by winning the Miss Trannyshack Pageant, has appeared in numerous films, and has been profiled in San Francisco Magazine and Bust Magazine. Fauxnique lent her voice and face to the dance track 'Lipstique' by Sliencefiction (aka Never Knows) and its accompanying video. As a current de Young Museum Irvine Fellow, she curated Making Scenes, premiered Our People, and will premiere Instrument in late Fall, which she will create at the de Young and perform at CounterPULSE.

Monique was co-director, with Kevin Clarke of the duo Hagen & Simone (2001-2007), is a past artist-in-residence at ODC Theater and CounterPULSE, and a past recipient (with Keith Hennessey) of the CHIME Grant.  For more visit:

Birdie-Bob Watt is another of those extraordinary persons whose presence here contributes to making San Francisco the wonderful place it is.  You may have seen Birdie-Bob in nightclubs and cabarets about town, in any of the Thrillpeddlers Cockettes musical revivals, in Tom Orr's "Dirty Little Show Tunes", or more recently in the Thrillpeddler's revival of "Marat/Sade".  On Wednesday afternoons, you'll find Birdie doing a cocktail waitress gig (in full face, of course) at Cafe Flore in the Castro.  Birdie loves the spirit of celebration that drag can inspire in our mundane and ordinary moments, elevating our workaday world to fabulosity.

Faux queen, belly dancer, editor, photographer and mother of two, Crickett Bardot has been performing in the bay area for over 15 years. From her first Tuesday night performance at Trannyshack to first runner up at at the Miss Trannyshack pageant in 2001 and winner of the faux queen pageant in 2003, Crickett has consistently remained a prevalent performer in the bay area drag scene. The thing she loves the most is incorporating all aspects of her life into her numbers. From big elaborate bollywood numbers to pregnant drag , there is nothing this queen wont try!

Within days of her first coming out into the world, Ruby met & began a long & very FRUITful collaboration with Diet Popstitute & KLUBSTiTUTE, which included Ruby's Rated Xmas, the Clinton Inaugural BALLSTiTUTE (she was Hillary), The Virgin Queen Contest, Hard Cock Cafe & many more. In 1995, she co-created (with Diet)  & hosted the 1st Faux Queen Pageant & after Diet's passing, helped found the KLUBSTiTUTE KOLLECTiVE which among other insanities, produced a total of 10 Faux Queen Pageants. In 1995 & again In 1997, she wrote & directed Rocky Horror Superstar: the Jesus of Frankenfurter Saga in which she also played GOD. In a previous incarnation, she spent years doing political satire & comedy with Plutonium Players, The Reagan for Shah Campaign & Ladies Against Women. Yea, but what's she done lately? For some time, she's been the victim of a bad case of acute ennui, which is not uncommon when you've been 39 for as long as she has. She recently ended up on disability with a bad back & carpal tunnel, no doubt from too high heels & too many hand jobs, though all the years of working drywall probably didn't help & is looking for a new career. 

L. Ron Hubby has done a bunch of stuff, but this is the main thing to know about her: She's always happy to receive cash bribes from contestants. Well, not out in the open or anything, but... well, you could just meet her behind the DNA Lounge on the day of the show, probably. If you just happened to be there at, say, 6:00 with a suitcase full of unmarked bills. May the most generous, er, best queen win!

Deena Davenport had graced stages across San Francisco in many drag forms, from Lefty Fister, (Mr. Trannyshack, 2002), to winning "Best Drag Queen" in the 1992 Gay Pride parade. (First Bio Female!)  She is now busy runner her glamour emporium; The Glama-Rama hair salon and gallery, Deejaying on Radio Valencia and is President and founder of the Valencia Corridor Merchants Association.
