Ms Classpergers (She/They)

Ms Classpergers is your spectrum sister of Nottingham. I found my female voice in musical theatre and like to honour those who inspire me with songs of their collection. I first performed in drag in 2018 where I was lucky enough to perform at Nottingham pride, and since then I have dreamed of being in-front of an audience (take that as you will). Singer, dancer and top-notch worrier at your service!
