Uncle Clifford Sayles (Nicco Annan)

Uncle Clifford (Nicco Annan) looking off to the side.
Uncle Clifford (Nicco Annan)

First Noted In – Season 1 Episode 1 “Perpertratin'”

Brief Introduction

While they present themselves as male while in public and sometimes during the day, Uncle Clifford identifies and lives their life as a woman in The Pynk. The reason? It is their establishment, their safe space, and probably one of the handful of places they can be at ease. Hence their name since, while the girls may not necessarily like how much of a cut they take, Uncle Clifford does their best to take care of them.

Additional Information About Uncle Clifford

Mercedes (Brandee Evans & Renika Williams)

First Noted In – Season 1 Episode 1 “Perpertratin'”

Brief Introduction

Mercedes is The Pynk’s headliner, but with enough money saved over her, approximate, 7-year career, it seems she wants to retire from stripping and start a business. What kind of business? Well, taking note she has a day job of coaching girls on a dance team, perhaps a dance studio? Either way, one of the reasons it may have taken Mercedes 7 years is due to dealing with her holy-roller mother, who often guilts her into giving up money. Which, considering what her mother put her through as a child, may shock you.

  • Save Your Money Kids (1.4): Has been working at The Pynk for 7 years and has been saving from every dance.

What we do know is where she came from was severely flooded, and, like Keyshawn, she was in a very abusive relationship previously.
