Heklina, a drag queen and entertainer, performs at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, CA, USA, on February 18, 2012.

Heklina is the stage name of Stefan Grygelko, who founded Mother formerly Trannyshack (1996),[1] is an American actor, drag queen, and entrepreneur in San Francisco. Heklina is half-Icelandic and named herself after the Icelandic volcano Hekla.[2]

I think that drag queens are still the eunuch clown that’s safe to laugh at. It’s definitively not shocking anymore. So I don't know if America’s really embraced it. The early 90s was when RuPaul and it was the first time any drag queen had mainstream exposure. I don’t really see a drag queen breaking out like that [again].”
