My name is Victoria Sikora. I am the female ego of Timothy Elliot Lalowski, a gender-fluid person finding their way one step at a time. My greatest passion is working to create a better existence for humanity, however I can. (Check out my human-rights activist blog at ItGetsMoreGay.tumblr.com) I am currently attending the Illinois Institute of Technology, working on two degrees in Architectural Engineering and Civil Engineering and hope to one day begin my very own non-for-profit engineering firm working to create progressive design systems in third world countries so that their systems can grow and advance to a level of independence from foreign hand-outs. I am also very passionate about developing the world in a social setting as well. I am a large advocate for human rights and I fight for all peoples’ rights on a daily basis. That is where my passion for drag comes in.
I am passionate for drag for two rudimentary reasons. 1)Drag is an opportunity to express a part of myself that has been suppressed for a majority of my life. Victoria is as much a part of me as is Timothy. 2)Drag queens are voices for the LGBT community, and they are symbols of it to the rest of the world. Their influence is stronger than many of them even realize, and can be used for so much good, if properly utilized. What I stand for is Love. I stand for finding every bit of Love you can for each and every human being, regardless of who they are, where they’re from, the color of their skin, whatever may be between their legs, or whomever they choose to consent to in the bedroom. I live every day trying to demonstrate the tremendous human capacity for Love.
In order to achieve my goals, I need to gain visibility, and that means the super popular show, ‘Rupaul’s Drag Race’. I have been a big fan of many of the queens who have been on the show, such as Pandora Boxx and JuJu Bee, who’s hearts and compassion have blasted away much of the competition. It is my hope to be a part of this show and seize the opportunity to be an inspirational drag queen that youth can look up to, respect, and grow from.
There’s a lot of work to be done, considering how short of a time I have been performing drag (3 months!!!), but I need to pull together an audition tape and become polished enough to stand a chance in the competition. I need costumes and props, Make-up, film, time, etc. In order to really be able to put together an audition. (I am going to push myself to perfection and utilize every cent to its fullest) I do my own sewing, scripting, costuming, music mixing, photo and video editing, etc. and I’m really good at utilizing low budget items, but there is only so far a queen can push these things before the competition starts to swallow her up! I go to school full time, run my own philanthropic dance troupe, and work full time while I am trying to pull this together, so I’ve demonstrated determination to make it happen.
All donations will be used solely for drag materials and the lovely people who help make my video happen (All of YOU!!!), will be recognized in the credits as well as a few shout outs to the more generous donors. Please help me live my dream!!!
