I’m so excited to share something a little different this week! My incredible partner, Flare aka Flarington King, an influential Drag King who has been performing for 25 years, did this amazing Kenny Rogers look to shoot a brand new video performance!
You can catch their interpretation of “The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers at the Drag King Legends show, happening on February 21st on Zoom. This show, produced by Flare, Mo B Dick, Ken Vegas and Fudgie Frottage, is a celebration of Drag King artists with 25+ years of performing under their belts. Truly an historic event and one drag fans won’t want to miss!
I had the absolute pleasure of photographing one of my favourite couples at the Dolly Shots Studio; the beautiful burlesque babe Bianca Boom Boom and the fabulous drag artist Black Swan! Their love is so palpable, it was really a pleasure to photograph them, and I’m so happy to share the first of two photosets today!
2018 has been a transitional year. It has been the uncomfortable growing stage in between leaving a past self behind and becoming a new creature. It has been hard and it has been a journey but ultimately it has been worth it.
The biggest change in my life this year was leaving my soul-sucking, 9-5 office job for a more creative career path. I have had some of my best photoshoots, both in front of and behind the camera and worked with a whole plethora of new and wonderful people! I made a fabulous new costume for one of my favourite performers, Laura Desiree. I celebrated the marriage of two of my dearest friends. I got a new, badass tattoo of my idol Tura Satana from my girl Suspiria! And to top off the whole year I move back into my apartment after nearly a year of extensive renovations!
I am now in the process of setting up Dolly Shots Studio for 2019 and I am so excited to share it with you! Stay tuned next year for lots more fabulous-ity and beauty!
We are bringing back our Spice Girl meets X-Men group number for this incredible event and will be sharing the stage with a ton of amazingly talented queer performers. You are not going to want to miss out on this weekend of shows running from May 24th – 27th.

In a shocking twist this week I am serving up a big slice of Beefcake! The sweetest person I know, Sky Blew, and I collaborated on some deliciously seductive photos to show off this boylesquer’s incredible assets. Sky is a multitalented performer who can be seen doing burlesque, drag (as Dixie Rect) and even shadow casting with Toronto’s Rocky Horror Picture Show troupe, Exited Mental State. Please enjoy this strip-tease photo set of the adorable Sky Blew!
