There are two types of people in the world. There are those who love Michelle Visage. And there are those who will learn to love her when they get to know her.

One of several Americans on this year’s line-up, Michelle started out young on the New York club scene, quickly being embraced on the gay underground circuit and partying with legends like the House of Ninjas, who were famed for their immaculate vogueing during the 1980s.
