Wagner Follare As Safira (Ralph)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Lipsync Time”

Who Is Safira (Ralph)

Ralph is shy, a bit femme, and is a makeup artist at his dead-end day job. However, as Safira, he is as fierce as the rest of the girls, though still a little dainty. But, don’t get it twisted, she’ll still whoop some ass.


Sergio Cantu As Lemon (Patrick)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Lipsync Time”

Who Is Lemon (Patrick)

The thick Patrick is very dexterous and seemingly is a numbers cruncher during the daytime. However, as Lemon, Patrick is a force to be reckoned with and is the unofficial leader of the group. Not because of age, but more so a willingness to do what the other two may piss and moan about.


Fernando Mendonca As Scarlet (Donizete)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Lipsync Time”

Who Is Scarlet (Donizete)

Donizete works hard for their money and is the first one to b**** about anything and everything. She is the sassy one and will tell off anyone, including Champagne, if given reason to. But, like any queen with a mouth, her heart is made of gold. It’s just you got to dig past a bit of bulls*** to see it.

As Scarlet, well, unlike the other girls there isn’t much of a drastic change. Donizete’s personality is what it is, it’s just a physical change when it comes to her alter ego.


Silvetty Montilla As Champagne

Champagne (Silvetty Montilla) talking about herself.
Champagne (Silvetty Montilla)

Fernando Mendonca As Reverend Sandoval

Jezebel (Sylvia Salustti)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Lipsync Time”

Junior (Lucas Gama)

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 3 “The Gay Cure”

Who Is Junior

Junior is Reverend Sandoval’s son and was one of the counselors at his gay conversion camp. From what it seems, Junior isn’t as hateful as his father and also isn’t as machismo. Which isn’t to say he is gay, bi, questioning, or etc. More so, he doesn’t live and die by his father’s rhetoric.

About Amari Sali 3365 Articles
New Jersey native Amari Sali takes the approach of more so being a media advisor than a critic to sort of fill in the gap left between casual fans of media and those who review productions for a living. Thus being open about bias while still giving enough insight, often with spoilers, to present whether something is worth seeing, buying, renting, streaming, or checking out at all.
