Chartreuse Money (She/they) has been performing their whole life, and doing drag since 2018. A “self-proclaimed drag queen” according to News 8 WMTW, Chartreuse has worked and performed at RuPaul’s Drag Con NYC, performed alongside Miz Cracker (RuPauls Drag Race Season 10 and All Stars 5), Mateo Lane (Netflix, HBO, Comedy Central) and even secured her own comedy drag show at Stand Up! NY, though the show never happened due to Covid-19. Chartreuse was nominated for Best Drag Performer for the 2019 and 2021 Portland Old Port Awards, competed in Top 6 in Miss Blackstones Pageant at Port City Music Hall, and has worked closely with Equality Maine. She is known for her work with children, most notably through Portland Stage Company (Play Me A Story), Drag Queen Story Time, and through her work with the New Leaders Project with EQME. She is the producer and host of her own show, The Char Ball at Portland House of Music, and is an advocate for inclusive performance spaces and opportunities for all queer artists.

Tasha Tektite made a crash landing here on Earth in June 2022. A total Pop Princess with a love for sparkle, she always comes with fun high-energy performances! “Tektite” a crystal formed when a meteorite hits Earth, has always inspired her with its unique properties of courage and to connect to other dimensions, and to the highest version of yourself!

KK Hollandaise is a deaf drag king from Portland. A baby drag king who enjoys performing and learning all kinds of drag. An essential side to any drag show, he is ready to get the crowd grooving along.
