OUR HOSTS & HEADLINER

NWPA Pride Alliance - Pride on the Bay - Host Announcement - DJ TOny G and Rebecca Mae

NWPA Pride Alliance is excited to announce the one and only Ada Vox will be our headliner for Pride on the Bay!

Ada was the first drag performer to advance to the American Idol Top 10 (Season 16). Ada's uniquely glittery, dynamic presence sparked conversations about American households' readiness to see a drag performer on a mainstream television program. InStyle founding editor Hal Rubenstein said "Ada is a Latina drag queen with a rafter-shaking voice of stratospheric range who is far and away the most formidable talent the show has introduced since Jennifer Hudson." Ada was also the runner-up on Queen of the Universe (Season 1).

Ada cultivates a resounding sense of self-love, acceptance, and community in everything she does.

"Do what you love for the people who love what you do."

-Ada Vox
