On today's episode, we kiki with the feisty latina from Miami who's setting the concrete jungle on fire, Pixie Aventura!!!
Pixie Aventura is a constant presence in New York City nightlife. For her, drag is both an art form and a business, which has enabled her to turn it into a full-time career. Pixie approaches drag with a level passion, polish, and professionalism which can be seen as a "how-to" manual for Drag Queens.
A Miami native, Pixie experienced drag for the first time through the performances of legendary queens TP Lords and Daisy Deadpetals. After leaving Miami to attend college in Ohio, she found herself in the company of the West Family, headed by Nina and Virginia West. Needless to say, Pixie was getting an ivy league education in drag. All of these experiences eventually led to the birth of Miss Aventura at Otterbein College, where she performed at an annual charity event. After graduation, she moved to New York to pursue a career on Broadway. Finding herself typecast and limited by the roles offered to Hispanics and Latinos, she broke free from the system by unleashing Pixie full force and hasn't looked back since!
