The New Mexico Pride Titleholders are the faces of Pride. These titleholders find opportunities all year long to engage the community, educate, and bring awareness of our LGBT culture through entertainment and appearances.

About 86% of LGBTIQ people have experienced mental illness and trauma. His drag father taught him that drag is not just about the performance it’s about being unique; avoiding being “normal”. He is a shining star that has made an impact on this world and touches the hearts of many. As a member of the United Court of the Sandias Youth Line, Roman performs at charitable events and helps with the holiday drive, the Light In the Night and Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico.
