One of his Instagram posts reads, “Hi! I’m Desmond from NYC. I’m a drag kid, dragutante, dragketeer, and draganista doing what I like to call kinderdrag. I’m a total drag slayer. I am also the youngest member of the original iconic pioneering ballroom house, the House of UltraOmni. I have the best fans, my AMAZIES! I am sincerely grateful for your love β™₯ and support.”

On the same photo, Desmond also writes, “I call my looks ‘androgynously’ and my style ‘avant drag’. I’m inspired by RuPaul, the fashions of the Club Kids and Blitz Kids, the artists Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, designers John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, and Commes Des GarΓ§ons, Nelson Sullivan videos, altdrag, and do-it-yourself drag. I design or style my own outfits.”

This 10-year-old is an awarded LGBTQ advocate and the founder of the first drag house for drag kids! How AMAZING is this?! I know you’re reading the term ‘amazing’ a lot in this piece, but I’m seriously at a loss for words with this kid! His drag house is called Haus of Amazing (oops!). The house is set to open soon for memberships.

Desmond is extremely inspiring because a lot of kids his age do not think it’s okay to come out at that age. Others might feel scared and lost because they think they have no one to relate to. Well, that isn’t the case and it’s important to let kids know that they have people just like them to look up to and connect with.

Before stealing the show, Desmond took a moment to Instagram to let his fans know how excited and grateful he is to be part of NYFW.

OMG! I can't believe this is happening right now. I am dying! Literally dying right now! My first time walking in @nyfw . Thank you @gypsysport …you made my dreams come true! ❀️ . . . . . .

Something else you should know about this inspiration is his motto, which is, “Be Yourself, Always.” I couldn’t agree more. It’s so important to remain true to ourselves, and if someone is a perfect representation of that, it’s definitely Desmond!
