Krista Herrington: australian deaf queen

Krista |
She/Her

Krista is a Deaf, Indigenous woman that is known for her incredible Drag performances using Auslan. As a makeup artist and model, she is a powerhouse when it comes to costuming and style.

When she's not covered from head-to-toe in sequins, Krista is an Auslan teacher. Well, some of her students have told us there's never a time where Krista doesn't look sparkly, even while teaching! Krista is a kind, patient teacher and she is adored by all of her students.

As a trans woman, Krista is a huge advocate for LGBT+ rights, especially within the Deaf community and has been an active member of the not-for-profit organisation Deaf Rainbow.
