By day, she’s an iconic global health scientist but as the sun sets, she takes the stage as the utterly unforgettable drag queen we adore, who reigns supreme with her regal presence and magnetic energy.


Don’t miss Lozza Cherry Mateo, the daughter of none other than the legendary RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alexis Mateo, ready to light up the stage in Oxford with her enchanting burlesque performances as a proud Scrumpet.
