This 10-Year-Old ‘Drag Kid’ Just Founded NYC’s First Drag Club for Kids
Drag clubs are nothing new throughout the city, but now thanks to 10-year-old Desmond Napoles, drags of all ages will have a space to express themselves.
Desmond, who also goes by his drag name Desmond is Amazing, prefers to be called a “drag kid” as opposed to the term drag queen which he feels is more exclusive to adults.
For the first time NYC will soon have a drag club specifically tailored to the youth called Haus of Amazing. It will be open to anyone 20 or younger, and will provide a community to kids like Desmond that love drag and want to express themselves freely. As Desmond says:
“People should be able to dance, sing, or dress in any way. You can express yourself however you want.”
And that’s exactly what Haus of Amazing is for.
From Brooklyn, Desmond is not only the founder of NYC’s very first drag club for kids, but he’s also the youngest member of Iconic House of UltraOmni, walks BQ European Runway, and was a guest talent at this year’s RuPaul’s DragCon NYC 2017. Desmond truly is Amazing!
