J’adore Mongciel J-Love-Performer

AdoreHi, my name is J’adore Mongciel J-Love, I started my drag career in Youngstown but currently reside and perform all over Cleveland, Ohio. I started my drag career around 4 years ago while studying for my Bachelor’s in Interpersonal Communications, with my minor in Africana Studies. I have two amazing titles that I reign, I am the Miss Ohio Queen Of Beauty Newcomer and Miss Cocktails Akron Newcomer. I like to think that I bring a lot of glitz and glamour with a side of banjeeness. I am so excited to show everyone here at the August Wilson African American Culture Center exactly what I have to offer. I can’t wait to entertain for everyone! Lots of love J’adore Mongciel J-love.
