Performance by Mercedes Carrington-Colby

Be entertained and delighted by drag performer extraordinaire, Mercedes Carrington-Colby. Mercedes arrived on the scene in the early 90s, "It was fabulous but the lifestyle chewed me up and spat me out several times."

Mercedes is the alter-ego of former VincentCare client, Damien Chandler. "Volunteering with Ozanam Community Centre gave me confidence and skills to gain employment. Now I've built a fantastic life for myself. I've made my way back to drag and it's time to show the world the showgirl I was born to be."
