We are excited to announce that Tuna Melt will be performing at this year’s Fire Ball. The stanky and delicious melt with a belt. Tuna Melt is a drag king for all the altos that knew deep down they were tenors. His drag reclaims the binary spaces in the musical industry through his thought leadership and original lyrics.
