Tonight! The Black Mondays Celebrate 5 Years!

Tonight my troupe, The Black Mondays, are celebrating our 5 year anniversary. Can’t believe it’s really been 5 years, but then, time flies when you’re having fun.

Sucio Sanchez and I, our first show on the road in 2006.  Sucio is retiring tonight….

Rama Lama, what became our signature number for years, if not still to this day. (I’m the blonde in the pink shirt on the left, lol)

Finally started getting political onstage: Bad Romance was my  first “trans” piece, and a real break out for me as a performer. I couldn’t have gotten the courage to do it without them.

Here’s to 5 more years, friends. <3
