Hi, my name is Blayke and I reside in New Orleans, LA. For the past 5 years I have worked in HIV/AIDS related services and more specifically working with gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men and transgender individuals. I am also a trans drag queen and have used the platform given to me through performing and competing in pageants to advocate for LGBTQ issues, especially those which directly affect the trans community and providing education.
