Al Lykya is Seattle’s dreamy, dimpled drag king stripper. Utilizing his background in dance, theatre, and the art of drag, Al Lykya challenges ideas about gender and stretches the definition of masculinity. A former competition dancer and child pageant star, Al parlayed his natural charm into his performances as an internationally known drag king over the last decade. The Man with the 10,000 Dollar Chest has performed at the Seattle Boylesque Festival, the FIERCE! International Queer Burlesque Festival, and played the role of Captain James T. Kirk in all three iterations of Star Trek: The Sexed Generation. This trans-masculine sweetheart was also the regular emcee for Revelry, and a guest vocalist with Pervana, the Tuesday Tease house band.
Al loves reading fantasy and sci-fi that includes queer, trans, and gender non-conforming characters. He is also a sucker for YA novels about vampires and werewolves.
