Celestia Renee Cox has played with characterization throughout her entire life, from dressing up and performing shows in the backyard, to being an active member in the theatre community, “the art of impersonation has always been fascinating” to her. Cox is currently in her fourth year of performing in Drag. Currently, Celestia performs 3-4 days/nights a week over the state of Virginia. You can typically find her at her home bar, Godfreys VA. If not there, you can find her somewhere between the Nation's Capital, Charlottesville, or Virginia Beach.
When asked what one of her greatest entertainment moments were, she replied: “For me, being supported by today’s youth is so humbling and important because they get it. All they see is pretty figures and shining, confident personalities...If I can empower other people to have confidence in themselves and forget about the madness of the world today for the duration that they are in my presence, then I am doing my job. Life is far too short to not have fun.”
Recently, Celestia traveled to Orlando, Florida to compete for the National title of Miss Gay Days. Out of a lineup of national title-holding competitors, Celestia placed First Alternate.
Celestia has previously worked with The Trevor Project (https://www.thetrevorproject.org) providing crisis intervention for LGBTQ+ youth aged 13-24. Late last year Celestia stated: “I worked hand in hand with the Children's Hospital at VCU to raise almost 400 new books to brighten children's faces.” Currently, Celestia works with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention(https://afsp.org). “I have some great events coming up later this summer/fall to support these organizations. Keep an eye out!” When asked for a quote that represents how you live your life, Cox stated “To see a better tomorrow, we must start today.”
