The Best Drag Performer & Artist & Entertainer in Palm Beach Goes to...

Melissa St. John is a Professional Female Illusionist and has been doing performance art for over 25 years.

The name Melissa St. John rings bells in Palm Beach County. Known affectionately as “The First Lady of the Palm Beaches” and named one of South Florida’s OUT50. St. John is revered for not only her ability to command a stage, she also is a fearless advocate that uses her powers for good. Her tireless commitment to advocacy has been on full display for 30 strong years. 

St. John works as an Entertainment Director for HG Roosters as well as a full-time florist at Austintatious Designs, LLC. St. John has played a huge role in organizing the annual “Send in the Queens” event, which is an annual drag fundraiser. She also has mentored a number of drag queens in the community and has been instrumental in curating the Miss Palm Beach Pride Pageant and has served as the official host for a number of years. Do yourself a favor a catch a show by St. John, hopefully you witness her performing a Whitney Houston song or Donna Summer song in one of her showstopping gowns.

“I'm so honored to be chosen for these three awards,” said St. John. “Our community means so much to me, and it brings me great pleasure knowing I've made a difference. Thank you for so many years of support, and together we can continue to raise our voices on all issues that are most important to us.”
