Jan is one of the most prominent ingenues in the world of New York City drag.
Whether she is performing with her band Stephanie’s Child (with fellow NYC dolls Rose’ and Lagoona Bloo) or hosting at bars all over town, this queen was dripping in stardust from the moment she took the stage. As she hits her biggest stage yet as a cast member of RuPaul’s Drag Race, I caught up with Jan to talk about rising in the drag ranks in New York City and what it was like getting the life changing call that she had been cast this season.
Michael Cook: Has it started to set in that you are part of the cast of the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race?
MC: Did you get any advice from your drag mother Alexis Michelle?
MC: You were doing so well career-wise prior to the show, from your one woman show to your band Stephanie’s Child. Is there a part of you that is hesitant to stop the momentum?
MC: There are so many girls who have come from the New York City scene that have made it to Drag Race; what former Drag Race girl has come from New York City and has taught you the most?
