“What’s good, Ma? Let me give you a reading!”
Aja is back on Grizzly KiKi. Since we last checked in, Aja has been on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 & RuPaul’s Drag All Stars Season 3; sent countless internet trolls back under their bridges; & traveled the world entertaining thousands of fans!
On the eve of RuPaul’s DragCon L.A. 2018, Aja delves into the intense racism & bigotry within the Drag Race fandom. As a Queen of color & a public figure, it is something she has had to deal with head-on. Tackling these experiences in both real & virtual spaces has been no easy feat, as they have become increasingly more common & brazen. What the trolls don’t understand is that Aja is a force to be reckoned with & she’s going to get them together, one way or another.
We are also celebrating the release of “Brujería.” It is the second single off of Aja’s upcoming debut EP, “In My Feelings,” to be released on May 11. The single dispels misconceptions surrounding Santería - Aja’s religious practice - while simultaneously celebrating historical & fictional Brujas. The track’s visually stunning music video completes the enchantment & explores the multiple facets of Aja’s complex persona.
Having seen Aja’s evolution over many years has been a privilege. She is a true New York Queen whose reach has grown beyond the five boroughs. She is using her art as a call to action. Queer people of color are essential, important, & must be celebrated!
