Could you please share with the readers how did you start doing drag?

Mizza: I started doing drag when I was 18, I had seen RuPaul’s Drag Race on TV and then I had seen local Dublin queens in The George and the dragon mainly Victoria, Davina, Shirley, Dolly, Veda and Pixie so that really made me want to do drag. Then, I went home and I researched about it and tried to do it. I entered the drive competition and then I didn’t win, I didn’t even place. After that, I asked queens who have their own night and if I could perform and 8 years later, here I am.

Which level do you think the drag culture in Dublin at?

Mizza: I think drag culture in Dublin is the highest one because there are so many talented people who are all different and plenty of room on the scene for people.

How do you describe your drag? Are you a performer, actress, singer or all of them?

Mizza: I am definitely not a singer what I would definitely say. I feel like my act is a lot more mental for most of the people, I feel like I am the class clown (she laughs).

What do you suggest for the ones who have just started doing drag?

Mizza: They can add subject that they won’t give up to their repertoire. I recommend you to have a research session prior to starting to do drag. Because, there are a lot of information which might be both useful and not useful. Try to find your own path of reflecting what you would like to shout out and then deliver it in your own way. Your makeup is important but not everything. Be open to develop yourself and practice a lot.
