“It doesn’t matter what you zip or unzip,” says TEDxGreenville 2014 presenter, Roxy, “It’s what’s inside that matters.”
Originally from Greenville and now living in Charlotte, N.C., Roxy says that she is “100% drag queen!” She remarks, “Charlotte is known as the Queen City, but Greenville is the Queen City of South Carolina.” With a wink, Roxy explains that the definition of Queen City is ‘a city that is not the capital city but which is the next largest to the capital city of a state’. It just seems to make sense, then, that our Roxy grew up in one Queen City and is now living in another.
Offering a little insight into her musical tastes, our Clemson-graduated Roxy says, “I love music, but my 3 favorite Bs are not Bach, Beethoven and Brahms; they are Barbra, Bette and Bernadette (Streisand, Midler and Peters)!”
At our March Salon, a preview party for TEDxGreenville 2014: Unzipped, Roxy raised a few eyebrows but even more comments about how elegant and beautiful she is. You may be surprised at how beautiful Roxy is on the inside, also.
At the April 11 all-day event, we’ll get a peek inside her life, her humor, and her heart. Our curator Lisa Corley says, “One thing’s for certain, people will be talking about Roxy’s appearance for weeks after the show is over.”
