When she’s not “dancing” at Drag Matinee or being an idiot at Plot Twist, she is conjuring up digital content to make her more viral than the clap.

Her digital work includes “Aunty Chan’s Vari-tea Show” as well as her Ru-Cap webseries “IMHO with Chan and Dixie” on YouTube. Her comedic performances are creative, inspirational, revolutionary, heart-felt, adjectives, so on and so forth.

Take your dollar bills out and pelt her down with them, it’s Aunty Chan!

DiDa Ritz

Dida Ritz got her start right in Chicago.

didaritz_pridefest_milwaukeeBeing known as “the legs of Halsted” and “lip sync assassin,” she’s a true staple to the drag scene. DiDa Ritz has been in the drag game for over ten years. She can currently be seen everywhere in Chicago — Y Bar, theAce Hotel, Sidetrack, Roscoes, Jackhammer, and Hamburger Mary’s — just to name a few.  She believes if you stay busy, you stay out of trouble.

When she’s not traveling, working or dragging it up, DiDa enjoys hanging with her close circle of friends, or watching lots of Hulu.

She appeared on Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, where she did very well and represented the city of Chicago with pride and love. She’s a true example of excellence.

DiDa performs at “Black Girl Magic” once a month in Boystown, which showcases different types of black entertainment in the Windy City.

We just simply loves DiDa!
