Saturday, June 8:  Shea Couleé (Ms.Couleé, if ya nasty) is a drag queen and recording artist hailing from Chicago, Illinois.

Couleé was a finalist on Season 9 of VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race where they slayed the runways and tied for the most challenge wins in the show’s history.

Since Coulee’s time on Drag Race, they’ve released multiple singles with video accompaniments, receiving critical acclaim, having videos in rotation on MTVUK and given the Best Drag Video of 2018 accolade by Billboard.

But they’re not the only ones GAGGING over Shea — recording artists like Christina Aguilera and Iggy Azalea have requested Shea specifically to join them in music videos and live performances.

Proving they’re not a one-trick-pony, Couleé has worked with makeup brand Lunar Beauty and was the face of Lush Cosmetic’s 2018 holiday campaign. On top of that, they manage a steady tour schedule, a behind-the-scenes web series, and a plethora of new music.

Sunday, June 9:  Dita Von has been proudly performing drag/female impersonation in Milwaukee and the surrounding areas for the past 6 years.

She’s no amateur to the stage, having performed in over 10 musical productions in her hometown of Manitowoc.  She is very thankful and grateful for the many opportunities available to her in Milwaukee. Dita can be found hosting and performing in weekly shows at many local venues.  When she isn’t performing, she most likely can be found working at the sewing machine making her visions become a reality.

Dita is very thankful and proud to be back hosting at PrideFest ! She would like to wish everyone a happy, safe and most importantly fun PRIDE! LOVE!!!
