Hey, it's me, Robin Graves. Well, not anymore. A lot of you knew this was coming. Some of you didn't. But there are several reasons why I've decided to stop being Robin and start being Farrah. For one, there are lots of branding issues that arise with any pun name. The name Robin Graves has been around far longer than I have, and no matter what I do, I will continue to be tagged accidentally in other Robin Graves' work. I wanted to start to set myself apart from other performers. For two, a new artistic direction has been a long time coming for me. When I started doing this, Robin Graves was a larger-than-life character who represented the woman I wanted to be. However, after over 3 years of being Robin, I've realized more and more that I'm happier as myself. Being Farrah, for me, means creating art that is more true to who I am as a person and allowing all of my talents, not just drag, to shine. I want my character to be a real woman. I want to be more than just a drag queen. I want to portray with my art that strong women don't have to be bad bitches. So, here's the new me. My name is Farrah Thorne. Nice to meet you.
