Working as a Transgender Performer

You’ve all seen the typical view of a stage sat in the audience, looking at the bright lights. On this occasion, I was privilege to a new view - from behind the curtain. I could see the packed theatre, the judging panel including celebrity guest judge Graham Norton, and another performer on stage. I though, was concentrating on something else so much, that I was surprised when I realised a topless woman in a Donald Trump mask from the previous act was standing next to me. This meant it was my time to take my position.
Taken the night of my First Lip Sync Victory at Bar Revenge

How did this happen? Let’s go back to the beginning. February 2015. I’d been out of the T-girl closet for about 4 months, and had been regularly going out in Brighton as female. One event had caught my eye - Lip sync for your life at Bar Revenge. At that point I’d not performed in public since school, my social anxiety making the chances of me doing anything, practically nil. Since my gender dysphoria had been diagnosed though, I’d become more confident, which along with the examples of lip syncing I’d seen on TV, motivated me to go down and give it a go. I was sat at the bar when I had my first of many encounters with host Crystal Lubrikunt as she took my name and my first ever song, You Give Love A Bad Name. I’d opted to go with my trans name Ruby Porcelain although I was tempted by an alternate drag name, Rita Bix, but decided I wanted to reflect my trans identity.
