We at dragqueens of the world met Martijn and she told us about her life and thoughts on equality.

‘Martijn’ is a project documenting the growing transvestite scene in London, particularly focusing on the life of professional Drag Queen and escort Martijn Smit, also known as “Vanilla Lush.” Martijn is a 31 year old Dutch man living in Lewisham, London. Since he was 18 he has been dressing in drag on a near daily basis. After years of minimum wage jobs including packing frozen chicken, he eventually moved to Amsterdam where his dream of becoming a professional Drag Queen eventually took off. – Quinn Palmer
