Trixie Mattel, Wisconsin’s sensational drag artist is bringing her signature sounds to the Saint Andrews Hall!
Trixie Mattel (birth name Brian Michael Firkus) was born in Milwaukee in 1989 and is a drag queen, actor, reality television personality, singer, songwriter, and musician. He comes from a Native American family (he’s half Ojibwe which is one of the largest indigenous ethnic groups north of the Rio Grande) and he made his debut as a drag artist when he was 19 years old (in a stage performance of the Rocky Horror Show). He had an abusive stepfather who’d call him a 'Trixie' when he acted feminine and he loves Barbie dolls (and other Mattel children's toys) so he combined the two for his stage name. He’s best known for competing on the 7th season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race; the reality competition television series documenting renowned drag queen Ru Paul’s search for America's next drag superstar. Trixie was eliminated in the show’s 4th episode but returned in episode 8. Unfortunately, she was eliminated again in episode 10 and she placed sixth overall in the competition. She’s also starred in other TV shows (Hey Qween, Gay of Thrones, American Horror Story: Roanoke), Web Series (Untucked, UNHhhh), and she made her music debut with the 2017 album, Two Birds.
