Amaya Sexton has Betty White dreams.
The JLo-loving, corn country native was voted Best Dayton Drag Queen in Dayton.com’s Best of Dayton Contest.
Amaya sat down with “What Had Happened Was” host Amelia Robinson for the first episode of the podcast’s second season.
She talks about the Sextons - her drag family, chicken wings, channeling Beyoncé and being a trans woman on Facebook.
“I get people on my Live who say, ‘I am not trying to be mean, but are you a man or a woman’,” she said. “What I am really doing is helping educate a lot of people about our community... I am very comfortable with who I am because I know who I am.”
Sexton, Miss Masque 2018, has 10 years in the drag game and plans to be the Betty White of her profession.
