Ceviche de Chocho

Drag Queen & co-host of Tuck O'Hej

Ceviche de Chocho

My name is Ceviche de Chocho and I'm a drag queen based in Stockholm, Sweden. I've been doing drag for around three years and I have previously worked as a hostess for a club named King Kong here in Stockholm. Right now I'm the co-host of a monthly digital drag show, called Tuck O'Hej. Drag for me is an extension of my personality and a chance to explore my identity, whether it is about gender or ethnicity. It is also my biggest creative outlet as during these years I have learnt about make-up, sewing clothes and styling wigs: everything that I need to transform myself into my ideal latina woman.
