Lasey was born in Kempsey NSW 2014 as a little bit of fun. After performing for a show called “Lets Paint the Town Red” as a celebration of local Women for International women’s Week 2014. This show lit a fire in me and opened up a passion I didn’t realize I had. Ever since that moment I have wanted to be able to perform and use my drag artistry as a voice and a platform to be myself and speak up for those like myself who are dealing with negativity and struggles based on sexuality and gender diversity.
