Kunj is an interdisciplinary artist enchanting the DMV area for 10+ years with provocative drag & performance art. Their drag is a blend of classic Bollywood glam & grand high witch with very a punk demeanor. Expect for something sweet and wet, sticky or aromatic. You’ll never be prepared for the spells they will cast!
KC B. Yonce
KC B. Yoncé is a local DMV born & raised drag queen, DJ, event host and activists.  He has performed at countless venues across the DMV but considers Number Nine & Trade his home bars.  KC hosts a popular drag show called “Slay My Name” which he hopes to resume now that venues are opening back up. 


Rigatoni is a fun loving and saucy D.C. drag queen always ready to twirl around. She's fierce, she's glamorous, she's a little dumb, but a ton of fun! 

The Darkest Star

The Darkest Star is incredibly excited and honored to be joining the Pride in our HIPS show cast! The Darkest Star is a gender chaotic drag king with a flair for beautiful grunge. He made his drag debut in 2018 at one of Pretty Boi Drag's Open King Night shows and has performed for them many more times since then. On and off the stage, you can typically find him rocking out anywhere people are spinning synth, new wave, goth, electronic, and rock music of the 80s and 90s.
