“You don’t even go here!” If you hear that variation on a quote from Mean Girls, Miss Keyska Diva is in the club. And probably a bit tipsy. But that’s one of the reasons we friggin’ heart her face. The celebrated performer in the LGBT community who’s been honored as Miss TG Las Vegas Pride and performed on the MTV VMAs with Nelly Furtado (plus starred in some films of the adult variety) is no stranger to complicated and elaborate costuming—as well as wardrobe malfunctions.

“At Secret I was dressed as Akasha from Queen of the Damned,” Keyska recalls. “The costume wasn’t sticking. As we were going on stage we were still trying to glue the top on and ended up having to ask the DJ for some duct tape just to cover my nipples,” says Keyska, who was also in the midst of an allergic reaction from the special contacts she was wearing, but continued with the performance. “The show must always go on!”
