Alex Velez also known as TP Lords was born and raised in Miami, Florida. TP started the art of female impersonation at the age of 16 in the Ballroom Scene (an underground competition between different groups; better known as houses; for trophies and bragging rights, sometimes money). This where tTP got the last name ”Lords”. The first name TP was a nickname given by the House of Lords family. It stands for “Total Package”; because of TP's many talents in this artform. It was the ballroom scene that opened TP up to performing at nightclubs professionally. TP started working at nightclubs at the age of 19, and has been in the biz for 23 years.
TP has won many pageants along the way: Miss Illusions, Miss Florida at Large, Miss Latina World, Ultimate Miami Drag Queen, Miss Miami Beach Gay Pride.
You can see TP performing at many clubs throughout South Florida. TP loves this artform because it is an opportunity to express art in any way with no boundaries or rules; music and fashion is the inspiration.
A recent transplant from the sparkly yet sinful city of Las Vegas, London

Currently working drag shows from West Palm all the way down to
South Beach Miami; this diva sure knows how to get around!!
After 11 years of twirling across the country, she can truly say this is what she was made to do. If we are lucky enough for you to join us at any of our events that she is working, we promise you that there will never be a
dull moment when this Queen is around.
