Spotlight: Sonchas Blanca



GURL: First things first; introductions, who the hell are ya? 

Sonchas:  Ok so I am Sonchas Blanca and I’m a baby drag king from the Newcastle area.

GURL: How long have you been performing? 

Sonchas:  Performance wise its pretty difficult to get booked as an under 18 performer in Newcastle, as I would assume it is most places, I do have another online show coming up, since most people are stuck in the house right now!

GURL: What’s been your favourite performance so far?

Sonchas: I performed on Instagram live as part of Quarantine Queens – it’s on my IG highlights!

GURL: Such a great little performance and you looked amazing too

GURL: Show us one of your most fabulous looks?

Sonchas: I think my most recent look is my best

GURL: Very masc4masc right there

GURL: Who are your biggest idols?

Sonchas:  Idols would be Dallas King, Baron LaVey and Faux King Dik, local drag and other trans kings really inspire me!

GURL: Tell us something absolutely random about yourself?

Sonchas: Random fact, I have grown up around the lgbtq+ community since I was  baby, I have two mums and wouldn’t have it any other way!

GURL: OMG that’s so adorable, a literal LGBTQ+ baby! They’re doing a fab job <3

GURL: Any advice for someone wanting to embrace the art of drag? 

Sonchas: For someone embracing the art of drag remember its more than what you see on drag race, AFAB queens and kings and trans artists exist too, all drag is valid! And if you wanna do drag JUST DO IT!

GURL: One song to be your anthem, go! 

Sonchas: My anthem would be little game by Benny or second puberty by Jake Edwards.

Oooo two for one!

GURL:  If you had to recommend us a fellow fierce entertainer, who should we hit up? 

Sonchas: The Salem Bitch, SHE IS INCREDIBLE!!!!

GURL: Yaaas we love us some Salem, check out here Instagram here!

Finally, what’s your fave design from our collection? 

Sonchas:  The local drag shirt, I love the design and everything about it.

GURL: We definitely need to make more of those in the future 😀

Go show this amazing young drag artist some love over on Instagram!
