She’s also a member of the drag duo, The Rose Sisters. Let the “Ballad Queen” of the Twin Cities take you through the emotion and soundness of her performance.

Megan The ManEater Carter
Megan the man-eater Carter is a cast member at sisters sluge where we performed by weekly.
Wanda Gag is fun, quirky, and always looking for new drag projects. Even though she just started doing drag this year, she’s been by Miss Ava Cado’s side for the last two years, learning with her all that it takes to become a beautiful woman. Serving Sexy Stupid Bimbo, Wanda is probably the tallest woman you have ever seen. Presenting comedy and beauty at the same time, you’ll get a kick out of her making goofy faces and shaking what her momma (the cushion section at Joannes) gave her.
Chanel East Coast
Chanel East Coast is all about love! A local to the Mankato area for the last 10 years, originally from Springfield, MN. She cannot wait to sing and dance with all of you! She's got thighs and loves fries!
Princess Blue Rose
Princess Blue Rose is a female impersonator who has been performing in the art of drag for over five years. She is excited to entertain, serve a look, and celebrate Pride with everyone at this event. Princess Blue Rose will give you a little class and a lot of sass during her performances. So please, enjoy and have a lot of fun as this marvelous cast gives you a reason to hoot and holler.
Clutch your pearls and rub your crystals Luna Muse is coming back to town! After graduating MSU, Mankato in 2019, Luna moved to the Twin cities where she spreads her witchy-poo magic working with Flip Phone Events and various other pop-up gigs in the midwest. Most recently she performed on the historic First Avenue stage for their grand re-opening since the industry shutdown.
SCMN Pride holds a special place in her heart as it cultivated her from the beginning of her drag career as a vampy & campy chameleon
