Mia Chambers

Joshua Conerly, better known as Mia Chambers, is Jackson’s best drag performer for the second year in a row. In the local drag community for nearly two decades, Conerly has seen the evolution of the craft and watched as younger queens made a splash, but says his old “glamour queen” style still sets him apart. Taking cues from old Hollywood, Conerly blends the style into his vintage looks. He says he loves performing and especially the support he gets in Jackson.

Conerly found his outlet in drag performing, from sewing to singing. “Drag is a form of religion for me,” Conerly says. “I have been doing it for over 17 years, and it has saved me more than once. It is really nice to get recognized. It just shows that people actually care about what you are doing and that they still want to see you around.” — Caleb McCluskey
