ABSTRACT
The article offers information on Hannah Fletcher, winner of Mister Phoenix Gay Pride in which she was named Nikki Kidd. It states that the title gave her the platform to raise money for charities and work for the equality of male impersonators or drag kings. She says she worked for an AIDS organization, and thinks her drag act would help other organizations to raise funds. She likes to perform to the music of 1950s or 1980s, and describes her work experience with Diamond Dallas as good.
