London’s afro punk princess, Baby is 25 years old and while in drag the prefered pronouns used are she/her.

“I was chilling at home when I got the call and I had a feeling in my spirit, I felt it was going to be good. They were like, ‘We want you!’ and I was like ‘I’d want me too! Sick!’ It was an amazing moment” she explained about her inclusion in this series.

“I’ve been doing drag for about four years now” she continues. “I started out performing around clubs around London and Brighton. I was at university in Brighton which is a small city and very queer.”

“So, I learnt how to block my eyebrows, throw on a lash, walk in a heel, I bought my first lace front wig and now, here I am. A glamorous queen!”
