Anastasia LOVES attention just like any other drag queen but what makes her different is that her energy in a performance is ALWAYS 100% no matter what! Anastasia is already an alter ego for her boy self but when she’s out and about and wants to PARTY her alter ego comes out & she goes by STAZZ! You can follow her on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and even learn more on her website.
