Slimthick Monroe!

Slimthick Monroe – The Queen of Sodom (2013)

Toronto’s hottest diva Slimthick Monroe made her debut at Sodom in June 2012 at Sodom is Burning where she dazzled the crowd who literally bowed before her as she hit the stage. She then played a sexy Studio 54 diva at Sodom Warhol where she mowed down Andy Warhol with a machine gun. Slimthick Monroe has been a member House of Monroe since 2011. She has competed many times in Toronto’s ballroom scene as well as at the Latex Ball in New York. Categories she often enters include body and best dressed. Slimthick was born in Trinidad but grew up in New York City. She moved to Toronto at age 15. She is involved in community development though the Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance, a youth-led organization that builds self-confidence by using ballroom arts including voguing and runway. She is also part of the Woman, Butch and Trans Ballroom Coalition, an organization that helps marginalized people in the ballroom scene. ~Sodom Website
