Let us tell you, 2014 is the year of G.L.A.M! Glitz Glam to be specific. Glitz is as unique as they get. He has a style all his own, a style he's has been changing and perfecting for nearly two decades.. and we just can't get enough of it!
After his time in South Beach, Jesse moved to Ft. Lauderdale and started to make a name for himself as an androgynous club kid. It was then that he first coined the name Glitz. With only a short time performing as a glitter-covered club kid in Ft. Lauderdale, the desire to become a full fledged drag queen took hold. With his newfound love of donning big hair and looks that are dripping in jewels, Glitz added the surname Glamour to his performance title.
In the fall of 2013, his make-up skills earned him a spot on World of Wonder’s YouTube mini series, Transformations, with one of the original club kids himself, James St. James. In addition to being noticed by the producers of Transformations, Glitz was also noticed by another WOWlebrity and previous winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, the one and only Chad Michaels! With Chad’s support, Glitz joined Drag Race Royalty on stage as he began performing regularly in Chad’s touring drag show, Dreamgirls Revue. Chad and Glitz's work together didn't stop there though. Chad also asked Glitz to be a part of his ‘Tragic Girl’ music video.
