Juanita MORE! is San Francisco drag royalty. Not only has she performed in the city since the early ’90s, but she’s also a drag mother and grandmother who’s inducted numerous performers into the art form. She keeps up with a busy party schedule, puts out voter guides every election season and campaigns for issues and candidates that affect San Francisco’s LGBTQ+ community. (Most recently, she spoke out against progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s recall.)
