Pandora Boxx

Pandora Boxx has been internationally entertaining the masses for more than a decade. Pandora most recently appeared as a contestant on the smash hit RuPaul’s Drag Race (Season 2) on the LGBT network Logo. The show garnered the highest ratings ever for the cable network. Despite not winning, Pandora proved to be the break-out star and was named by Entertainment Weekly "America’s Next Drag Superstar.” also called Pandora’s “the most controversial elimination of the season.” That popularity led to becoming a drag professor on the spin-off show called RuPaul’s Drag U (Season 1 and 2), for which Pandora was voted MVP twice by fans of the show. Pandora hosted the all-drag-queen comedy show One-Night Stand-Up: Dragtastic NYC, which also aired on Logo. Pandora can also be seen in the award-winning Absolut: Cocktail Cabaret commercial.

Pandora is also the creator, writer and star of the public access/Internet show The GAY (means happy) SHOW! Pandora’s credits run the gamut of media, including stage (Steel Magnolias in the role of Annelle), screen (A Voice from the Lantern in the role of Marvelous Marvin) and television (VH1's drag documentary Boys Will Be Girls), as well as having work featured in several film festivals like the ImageOut Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and the Berkeley Film and Video Festival (receiving two honorable mentions). Most recently Pandora produced, starred in and wrote the hit play “The Lipstick Massacre," a comedic murder mystery. The play premiered at Rochester’s MUCCC to four sold-out shows, which prompted its return several months later to the prestigious Geva Theatre Center, also in Rochester, to rave reviews.

This year Pandora released a debut single called "Cooter!" The single rocketed to number 56 on the Dance Singles Chart of iTunes as well as reaching the number 2 position on Amazon's Dance & DJ/Dance Pop Hot New Releases Chart, right behind Adele. Pandora is currently embarking on a world tour called "Pandora's Cooter Tour!"

The 13 Most Underrated Madonna Songs

(0) Comments | Posted December 30, 2014 | 10:01 AM

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Madonna fan. I have been since I was a wee lad dancing around my bedroom lip-syncing to "Borderline". Amid some Madonna leakage, she released six tracks (which I'm loving) early from her 13th album Rebel Heart (due out on March...

I was recently going through my favorite movies and realized I'm a huge homosexual. Ok, so maybe I didn't JUST realize that but I digress. I realized there certainly are some "gay classics" that have absolutely nothing to do with the gays at all. What makes a movie totally gay...

Doing It for the Funny: In Defense of the Comedic Drag Queen

Now that this season of RuPaul's Drag Race has almost come to the finish line, it's time for me to put in my two cents about all this comedy-queen bashing that has happened. Quite a few queens were saying that drag is not about comedy and that you don't tour...

The whir of the machine is soothing to my nerves. Everything has gone wrong today of all days, my mother's birthday. The light glides underneath its plastic sheath, like a searchlight seeking lost ships at sea. With the gift I had bought my mother shattered into a million pieces on...

To Write, To Live

(12) Comments | Posted June 1, 2012 | 6:55 PM

To write is to live. It is the very blood that flows though my veins. Without it there would be an empty void, unfulfilled by any source. Where there was desperation, writing became my salvation. Where there were no words that could be spoken, writing became my voice. Where there...

And I'll tuck them under my dreams,
And if we wake up old beyond our years,
Not quite as brave as we seem,
It's just the pain that never disappears.
Tell me where is boy blue..."

The Last Days of Northside: A Personal Essay

When I was 7 years old, I was happy to be me. I went to grade school in Falconer, N.Y., and my parents were actually told I was too chatty, which was a far cry from when I was voted "The Quietest" in high school. One report card even said,...

Out of the Boxx: Yes, I Am!

Fag. Homo. Queer. These were the words I grew almost accustomed to hearing as I walked the halls of my school. I hated those words. The truth is that I really didn't even understand what they meant. To me they just became bad words, words I never wanted to hear,...

I remember coming out. It was a hot summer's eve about 300 years ago. Abraham Lincoln was president then. He really looked good in that little yellow chiffon number he stole from Mary Todd. Oh, Mary, what a looker! Ah, it was the best of times. It was the...
