Violet Chachki (born June 13, 1992) is a genderqueer drag performer and musician. Violet has no pronoun preference.[1]

She began performing in drag at the age of 19. The name "Violet" was inspired by Jennifer Tilly's character in the film Bound, while "Chachki" is a variant of the Yiddish word tchotchke, a small object that is decorative rather than functional.[2] Violet first performed at the bar LeBuzz in Marietta, Georgia. He used a fake ID to perform in local drag shows, eventually winning "Miss New Faces" at Friends on Ponce in Atlanta.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

"I myself identify as being genderqueer. So some days I feel more like a female. Some days I feel more like a male. And some days I don't want to take my makeup off. And some days I don't want to put it on. So for me, gender is extremely fluid like that. Drag has really helped me explore my identity."[3]
