Jacqueline Dimera

Anthony Derose’s drag persona, Jacqueline Dimera, was created at first as a dare from a friend, then continued on to be his 10-year long alter ego. 

Derose has won multiple titles in drag pageants across the country, and is a member of the Imperial Court of RI at Providence, an organization that “raises charitable funds and performs noble deeds” for the community. 

He is also the chairman of the Democratic Party LGBT Equality Caucus, working with government officials to raise awareness of local LGBT issues. 

You can see Jacqueline Dimera this weekend at the 2017 RI Pride Fest, hosting Drag Block B and Performing at the dark Lady Saturday night, June 17.
