I’m CC, and I own CC’s Kitchen in Louisville. Drag is very new to me and I started regularly performing in February of 2022. The character CC was created to be the personification of my restaurant, environment, menu and style of food. Everything we do is over the top AND FUN, so CC has been evolving to be over the top and fun as well! CC’s is also home to one of the top Bloody Mary’s in the United States, and the MOST over the top Bloody Mary in Louisville.

Hello, my name is Vannessa Navage Halston, I’m a Sagittarius and I’ve been doing drag for about 5 years. What I love about drag is it helps me express and show certain sides of myself that others always deemed too feminine. I took a step back from drag to focus on my career, I’ve been with Aramark at the university of Louisville for about 7 years. With Aramark I am the pride hub leader for Kentucky, as Well as the diversity and inclusion district champ. I’m really looking forward to helping raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness as it’s something that has been common in my family tree.
