Persia

PERSIA was born from the burgeoning creative mind of a child in South Central Los Angeles. With degrees from the University of California, Santa Cruz and the San Francisco Art Institute in one hand, and a few pairs of heels in the other, she set out to conquer and revolutionize the drag community. Persia began performing weekly at Esta Noche. Whilst performing at events around the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Mexico—including a few quinceañeras—Persia has also curated art shows, performed stand-up, appeared on a few television shows, modeled, and has represented SFMOMA by transforming into Matisse’s “Woman with a Hat.” She also works as a teacher’s assistant in a Children’s After School Arts Program called CASA, a program focused on social justice.
