Cynthia Lee Fontaine is ready to lip sync for her tierra…
The 36-year-old Puerto Rican drag performer and former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant, whose real name is Carlos Hernandez, is set to perform at a drag benefit to raise funds for Puerto Rico.
Last month, fellow Drag Race star Phi Phi O’Hara announced the Hurricane Maria relief show, titled Queens United/ Reinas Unidas. Along with Fontaine, who competed on seasons eight and nine of Drag Race, the show will feature more than 25 queens of Drag Race fame, and will take place November 6 at First Avenue in Minneapolis.
Other Latina drag performers set to perform include Jade Sotomayor, Naysha Lopez and Yara Sofia.
Billboard will host an exclusive live stream from the show on its Billboard Pride Facebook page.
All proceeds from the show — tickets, meets and greets and merch sales — will go to Somos Una Voz, a relief initiative started by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. The foundation is rushing food, shelter, medicine, power and means of communication to Puerto Ricans in need after the island’s devastating natural disasters.
The full lineup includes: Acid Betty, Alexis Michelle, Bebe Zahara Benet, Bob the Drag Queen, Chad Michaels, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, Ginger Minj, Jade Jolie, Jade Sotomayor, Jaidynn Diore Fierce, Jessica Wild, Jiggly Caliente, Kandy Ho, Katya, Kimora Blac, Madame LaQueer, Manila Luzon, Mariah Paris Balenciaga, Max, Milk, Mrs. Kasha Davis, Katya, Mystique Summers, Naysha Lopez, Ongina, Pandora Boxx, Phi Phi O’Hara, Phoenix, Trinity k. Bonet and Yara Sofia.
The show is sponsored by Flip Phone MSP, and O’Hara has launched a crowdfunding page as well.
