SECRET is the app that gay Washington loves to hate. Amid recent controversy that it is used for little more than basic bitching and slander, one secret actually said something positive: “Say what you will about other drag queens, but I’ve never seen Pussy Noir do the same thing twice on stage,” read one secret.

Of course, that isn’t a secret to her legions of fans – both straight and gay – who pack her performances across town. Less a drag queen than performance artist, Pussy Noir harkens back to the genderqueer days of drag in the 1980s when queens like RuPaul ran around performing as a little bit male, and a little bit female.

Noir always surprises, whether it is tantalizing a party of straight frat boys only to shimmy out of her dress and wig to reveal that she is physically male, or dragging male models across a bar top on a leash to wish a happy birthday to a friend. Each of her performances is unique.

Pussy Noir has another new creation planned for the BYT/Capital Pride Present BLAST OFF! party this Friday at Dock 5 at Union Market. She won’t reveal exactly what she’s performing, but – if based on past pride performances – it will be one of the most talked about of the night.
