“I always knew there was a different side of me, but I never knew what it was until I started drag. It came out and I felt free.”
Dustin Villa, 23, began performing as Raquel Blanco nearly two years ago as a way to express himself creatively and give back to the LGBTQ community.
Raquel describes her style as "high-fashion glamour," inspired by luxuries Dustin didn't have while growing up.
“I want her to advance to the highest level and hopefully win a national title and a few pageants. Maybe one day, RuPaul’s Drag Race, but that’s everyone’s dream. I definitely want to be a star.”
