long comes Violet Chachki, she’s just 23, and already like a chilled glass of bubbly she leaves us thirsty for more. Violet is one of those incandescent talents that can iterally steal the show. No, make that run away with the show just like she did when winning this year’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 7. Oh, btw, she also ran away with cable channel Logo TV’s hundred thousand dollar grand prize. Not a bad day at the office for her and not so bad for her legions of new fans, either!
So pour yourself a glass of happiness and let’s ask one of the hottest new Transgender Superstars on the planet just how she came to be in the International spotlight…
Violet, your formative career began by working in the Atlanta Dungeon. One of the Mistresses mentored you by “showing you the ropes,” so to speak. Will you tell us how you got into the BDSM business? I got into the BDSM scene really because I was always inspired by the wardrobe. I love all types of extremes but I love extreme fashion the most. Word got around Atlanta and I started working a few parties here and there and things just sort of progressed.
You said, “It was fun working at the Atlanta Dungeon.” You enjoyed the experience. Will you give us some juicy details about what happened in one of your behind closed doors forced feminization/humiliation sessions? I can’t give away too many details. I find them fun because you actually get to see a transformation happen. Someone gets to experience, if only for a little while, one of their fantasies. They get to step out of any gender roles they deal with in their day to day life.
Your drag performances on stage started in a club on Cheshire Bridge Road in Atlanta. What was your gig like up there on stage for the first time? What was your first professional costume? I really started out preforming burlesque style or burlesque inspired drag numbers or “Draglesque,” as I like to call it. My first professional costume was for this huge drag show called the Starlight Cabaret. It was a 5-piece black burlesque costume; I covered it with sparkling crystal rhinestones.
