Artist Statement:

I’m Ryan Stone, a drag king and burlesque performer from Colorado. Performing in drag has given me an platform to express my gender identity without limitations and with total acceptance from others.

Art to me is passion and there’s no better place to express that than on a stage. I love being playful with the audience and seeing the joy in peoples faces when I perform.

I also love breaking down the traditional gender norms and exploring what feels natural to me. I hope that by living out in the open I can destroy more ignorance and bring people into the light by being truly free. Be the truth, but know that it is a threat to a world constructed on lies. Being yourself can be more exhilarating than any drug.
