NAME "My name is an homage to three things: "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani; the
British sitcom, "Keeping Up Appearances" ( It's pronounced, BOUQUET! It's spelled, B-U-C-K-E-T! ); and just some good old-fashioned alliteration!"
FIRST DRAG PERFORMANCE "They always say there's three times of year drag performers are born: Pride, Halloween, and college drag show. I got sucked into performing at my college drag show back in 2012 as Mama Mammaries where I performed Gwen Stefani to a crowd of 400. God bless that Kate Gosselin-looking queen who wore "banana" yellow flats. Once I moved to Chicago, Kahmora Hall took on two drag babies: myself and Soju. We have been family since."
GO-TO NUMBER TO SLAY A CROWD "One of my specialties is something I call [Briawna's Broadway], where I grab an audience member, ask them their favorite musical and perform a song from it on the spot. My fight- or-flight kicks in when I have to improvise and it's truly special for the show."
FUN FACT "I was featured as a contestant on the first season of Mental Samurai! I won't spoil what happens, but I am on the premiere episode. If you have trouble finding me, I'm the one that makes Rob Lowe blush."
WHERE CAN WE CATCH YOU "Every Thursday, the drag troupe I'm a part of, Outhaus, performs at The Annoyance in Lakeview."
GUILTY PLEASURES "I come off as a HUGE Broadway and disco fan, so a lot of people are shocked to hear I'm OBSESSED with hair metal of the '80s. I mean, with names like, Cinderella, Twisted Sister and Madame X, how can a queen not love it?"
