Mrs. Kasha Davis

Meet one of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

Mrs. Kasha Davis’s famous catchphrase on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7? “There’s always time for a cocktail.” But since 2015, Davis has been sober, which has profoundly impacted her life and work for the better. “In the process of clearing my mind over those eight-plus years, I have discovered the importance of giving back and being a light that was not there for me growing up.”

And Davis is a light, be it on season 8 of All Stars this year or the drag story hour she has helmed for almost seven years at Blackfriars Theatre in Rochester, N.Y. In the face of right-wing attacks on drag artists entertaining and educating kids, she has doubled down. In fact, her proudest accomplishment is securing a partnership with a production company to create a children’s TV show that she would cohost with her husband, Mr. Davis (a.k.a. Steven Levins).

“We are winning,” says Davis, who is a stepparent of two. “No matter how loud, angry, or even violent the haters are we win by being exactly who we are. Through these difficult times we have continued to build allyship and awareness and, I hope we continue to see the progress that is being made as we continue to stand in our truth and light.”

Coming up, Davis will be playing the role of Barry in a production of The Prom and will teach a course on drag at SUNY Brockport as an adjunct professor. She also continues to be an advocate for LGBTQ+ people struggling with addiction. “There are many paths to recovery, and the biggest message is that we can’t make it alone,” says Davis, adding, “I live my recovery openly so that others in the LGBTQ+ community can see it’s possible. One day at a time.” @mrskashadavis
