Name:Baga Chipz
Age: 29
Location: London
Real Name:Leo Loren

Name origin: "I was having a drink in a pub in Birmingham and this fella came up and started flirting with me and my mate. I said: "Look, why do you want burger when you can have me, prime steak on a plate?" And he was like: "Prime steak? more like a bag a chips."

I thought you can’t get more British than a bag of chips can you?! You’ve got your Crystals and your Sandras, but I’m unique. I stand out. If anyone else has my name, then they’ve copied it!" Baga Chipz explain about her drag name on a ITW.

How did you get into drag?
About ten years ago my mate put me into drag. She made me up
as Amy Winehouse with the tattoos and beehive and we went to
a karaoke bar where I sang Back to Black and everyone was like, 'Wow, that’s amazing’. The owner of the boozer said would I like a
gig. I literally smashed his hand off and the rest is history. I’ve
done drag for the past ten years - it keeps a roof over my head
and keeps me in clean knickers.


Name: Vinegar Strokes
Age: 35
Location: London
Real Name: Daniel Jacob

How did you come up with your drag name?
The origins of my name came about with me putting makeup on
for the first time and sending a picture to my best friend, who
replied with ‘Alright Vinegar ****’ and I were like Vinegar? That is
a hot name. I wasn’t sure about ‘****’, so I went on the internet
and Vinegar Strokes popped up and I thought that’s my name!


Name:The Vivienne
Age: 27
Location: Liverpool
Real Name: James Williams

Name Origin
"I love Vivienne Westwood and when I moved to Liverpool everyone used to call me Vivienne as I was head to toe in Westwood, so when I started doing drag it was a natural progression, but I didn’t want one of those cheap, nasty, slutty drag names so I thought of 'The Vivienne' and here she is, there’s only one of them."

How would you describe your style of drag?
My style is like a scouse wife who has come into money, she
moved to LA and blew it all and then she’s had to move back to
Liverpool. I like to have a really fierce look, but I like to be
hilarious on stage so I’m kind of an old school and the new
school put together which I think works.

Comedy is definitely my trump card. My favourite trick in drag is
my vocal impersonations so I do everyone from Kim Woodburn,
Cilla Black, Donald Trump - you name it, I’ll do it - for the right
