MLB: “Ufff. I have been doing drag since I was 17 years old, right now I am 26.”
DQG: What inspired you to do drag?
MLB: “All started playing in a competition in high school, by them I realized how incredible was to use makeup and other resources to create characters and entertain people. I think all drags are for entertain people, and people are who inspire you to create different fantasy for every night.”
DQG: How did you come up with your name?
MLB: “When I did my first show I did not have a name, but I knew I wanted a scary , androgynous and strong name. I was watching tv, “the buffy the vampire slaver”.

DQG: Are you excited about the book?
MLB: “Of course I am !, it´s an honor to be part of this, and for me is an incredible experience sharing this book with several legends of drag like Lady Bunny or Jeffree Star.”
