1 - Tell me about your character and where the inspiration for Sherry Vine came from?
Sherry Vine started as a joke, just to run around the clubs and have some fun. Then I started performing and here I am! I've been inspired by so many; Carol Burnett, Debbie Harry, Pam Anderson.
2 - How do you feel when you transform into Sherry Vine ?
For me it's a costume for the character. I love it and it's fun but I don't hang around the house in drag. I feel confident when I'm "Sherry".
I think so... Keith is reserved and laid back and Sherry is all over the place. lol

Depends - people can be very aggressive and mean and others can be very supportive and happy!

There's no question about that - drag IS an art form. It's an ancient art form actually.

Yes but all characters. One day a policeman, the next Mom, the next a rock star!
