The term legend gets tossed around a lot in reference to drag entertainers, but it certainly fits the bill for the legendary Kelly Lauren. For over forty years, Kelly has been in a fixture in the drag scene. And she’s a winner baby! Kelly Lauren’s been crowned Miss Gay Houston, Miss Texas-USofA and the one crown to rule them all – Miss Continental.

Kelly surprises and delights audiences with vampish ways and dirty dirty blond onstage antics that comes across as a delirious fun fusion, if Stevie Nicks was a Las Vegas showgirl.
