“Love is my secret ingredient!”
One of the most outrageous and charming drag performers I’ve had a pleasure of sharing a stage with is Austin, Texas’ very own Max Sage . better known as Ms. Anne Thrope. Max is an accomplished chef and recently wowed Food Network judges on Chopped Sweets, a cooking competition where 4 confectionery artists are tasked with making delicious desserts from some pretty weird ingredients.
