Q: At what age did drag become an interest and how did you pick your name?
It never really was an interest, as I stood away from Queens. However, when I first met Asia, she told me I would be amazing if I did drag. One day I gave in, and from then on I was addicted. I first did club kid looks and then 2 years later I started doing pretty drag. My last name came from the 7 deadly sins and Dahlia came from the Black Dahlia.
Q: How many times did you apply to be on RuPaul’s Drag Race? How did it feel when you found out you got chosen?
I applied twice and got chosen and I was super excited when I got the call. I was actually at a Dunkin Donuts with some drag sisters when the producers called.
Q: Tell us about your RuPaul’s Drag Race experience?
Although it was short, I had a great time and I got to meet a lot of amazing people that I can now call my sisters; my drag family has now completely expanded. Also, it opened up a lot of doors for me and now I travel a lot more.
- Is there something you wish you did different and/or is there a certain look you wish we could have all seen?
I wish I didn’t choose the character I did, and I wish I would have shown more of my personality.
Q: What’s your marital status?
Single, and I am not looking for anyone right now.
Q: Who do you want to win?
I probably would want Nicky to win or my sister Jaida or Jan. I really love all of them, so it’s hard to pick.
Q: What’s ahead for Dahlia?
Hopefully you will see me on another season of Drag Race, please give me that Vangie edit. I also want to do music and more with Make up as I was a make-up artist before I did drag. I also want to do a lot with fashion and modeling.
