Lady Bunny

Born Jon Ingle, originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee, she has lived in New York since the 1980s. She began her career alongside Larry Tee and RuPaul as a fixture on the Atlanta, Georgia gay scene. She appeared in a variety of low budget films with them.

"The higher the hair, the closer to God," says Bunny, who was named the country's number 1 drag queen by Genre Magazine, and also dj's at some of the best parties in NYC.

This "Lady" is best known as the founder, producer and Mistress of Ceremonies of Wigstock, New York's Labor Day dragfest since 1984. She's a Southern girl through and through, raised in Chatanooga and first "up in drag" professionally in Atlanta's fertile bar scene with friends Flloyd, Lahoma and RuPaul.

Her first New York haunt was the seminal Pyramid Club, and she still prowls the night fearlessly - whether spinning lounge tracks in various New York nightspots, performing her own cabaret-style revue (most recently at Fez) or just terrorizing and delighting the unwary night public every chance she gets.
