Tootsie Snyder grew up in rural Ohio and moved to Pittsburgh at the age of 18 to find herself and her passions in life. Working at Pegasus downtown introduced her to the fast-paced and fabulous life of a gay yinzer… and DRAG!
Drawing inspiration from local and international talents, Tootsie has been performing for 7 years in Pittsburgh. She started at the Blue Moon through open stage events and was later crowned Miss Blue Moon in 2016. She has since expanded her creative portfolio to include a vast array of venues and events. In addition to the lively, weekend drag shows of Pittsburgh, she has performed and hosted events such as birthdays, viewing parties,Pride events, anniversaries, bingo games, university-sponsored programs, private parties, weddings, brunches, trivia nights, holiday celebrations and much more.
Outside of drag, Tootsie enjoys taking care of her plants, styling wigs, experiencing new places and food, getting together with friends, and being a loving and devoted dog dad to Pico. She is a fun and free spirit, who loves to laugh and make others laugh too.
Tootsie is also passionate about politics and equity for all people. She believes there is a place in this world for all talentsand creative energy, regardless of identity and that music is a common ground we can all celebrate. She strives to relay that message through her performances and can be seen in her looks, energy and killer lip-sync talents.
Tootsie looks forward to what the future brings and the new challenges, venues and connections that await.
