Holden Wood, a semi-professional bastard, has been a gender mocking buffoon since his freshman year of college, where he first exposed himself to the world as a part of the Queens and Kings of New Paltz’s Halloween showcase. He has since been tramping around the Bay Area, sneaking onto any poorly guarded stage he can.
When he’s not eating dirt or throwing coal at audience members, Holden dedicates his time to advocating for drag both as an art form and a means of gender exploration and expression – especially for our LGBTQIA+ youth. He does this through his work with the Grand Ducal Council of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties as the current reign’s Royal Crown Prince.
Having been described as “half James Dean, half the swamp monster that ate James Dean”, Holden is guaranteed to confuse, embarrass, and arouse any crowd!
