Erika Simone is this week’s Dragaholic Drag Queen of the Week! Find out how this entrepreneurial drag queen is taking over the world of ride sharing, one fabulous car ride at a time!
My name is Erik Koral, aka Erika Simone, and I am a Los Angeles native, entrepreneur and Drag Queen. My concept Driving is a DRAG is a funny hybrid of Ride Share (Uber & Lyft) and Drag and things are absolutely taking off for me right now. LA Weekly published a huge story about me three weeks ago, with a great 3 minute sizzle video and things have just EXPLODED since then with 8 additional pieces of press out and 7 more coming, including New York Times.
I am going to be a subject in the forthcoming documentary “Dragged” and have other secret projects in the works. It’s definitely an incredibly exciting time in my life and I can’t wait to see whats going to happen the rest of this year. I also have plans to do a panel on business and creative marketing using Drag as a medium at DragCon, a Lyft float at Pride LA & SF, get on “Ellen,” and I am also talking to several LGBT organizations about implementing a “safe ride” program for LGBT youth and the Trans community as well.
My eventual goal is to branch off of Lyft and Uber and franchise this as a specialty business by 2016 with Drag Queens driving party buses and limos in major cities across the country!
