Having spent years admiring the pageantry of Kentucky drag, Dustin was instantly taken with the out-of-the-box drag he found in NYC. The son of a preacher man, with musical theatre training and a punk rock soul, Dustin’s unique point of view and style of story telling had finally found a home. And thus, Dusty Ray Bottoms was born!
Dusty grabbed the attention of NYC nightlife with her showstopping performances in competitions such as The Miss Look Queen Pageant hosted by Bob The Drag Queen and So You Think You Can Drag? Named “Who’s Next” by NEXT Magazine as “the kind of performer who just might have what it takes to rival major drag talents like RuPaul and Bianca Del Rio.”, Dusty had become a resident Drag Queen in NYC!
