UNIQUE Programs at Sacramento State is pleased to announce a special inclusive drag show with RuPaul’s Drag Race cast member Shuga Cain on Thursday, October 24th at 7:30 pm. This FREE event takes place at 7:30pm in the University Union’s Ballroom.
Shuga Cain (born Jesus Martinez) appeared in the most recent season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Shuga Cain was a director for media education for Scholastic and many other start-up businesses before beginning doing Drag. However, Shuga Cain always knew the performance life was better suited for Shuga. Shuga did cruise line performances with Disney and did musical theatre earlier in life. Though, money became an issue with the life of a performer. Thus, Shuga came to the business world to make a living.
Shuga moved to New York and was approached by a tech company to do their media. Shuga began making 6 figures, and was doing Pride concert performances on the side. Eventually, Shuga came to the realization that drag was the type of performance and occupational lifestyle of preference in comparison to any kind of media and business work offered.
Shuga started out doing Drag at age 39, and is now only 41 years old, and the oldest Drag Queen to be on Ru Pauls Drag Race series. For only being in the drag community for two years, Shuga Cain has truly made a big name.
