Gregory D’Wayne of Dallas, Texas, might not sound familiar, but his stage name, A’Keria C. Davenport, carries with it a long tradition of drag queen excellence. Specifically, Davenport is a part of the House of Davenport, a well-known group of queens who bring with them a long tradition of performance, and will be performing in Ann Arbor on May 10.
“[A’Keria Davenport is] the drag daughter of Kelexis Davenport, whose other daughters include past contestants Sahara Davenport and Kennedy Davenport, as well as Silky O’Hara Munro (drag grandmother of Ra’Jah O’Hara), Deja Davenport (drag mother of Honey Davenport and drag grand mother to Monét X Change) and Chevelle Brooks (drag mother of Jiggly Caliente),” according to Davenport’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” fan page.
In addition to the association with the long line of queens, Davenport is the current reigning “Miss Black Universe” and has a “slick shiny look that makes you sit up and pay attention.”
“This super accomplished pageant drag queen is doing the Davenports proud with her signature aesthetic: ‘fit, fashion, mug and body,'” said fans. “Expect big hair, big attitude and big results from this competitor.”
