~~This award honors Leigh’s work in female impersonating and entertainment~~


In his own words ….. 

“I have been doing shows since 1976, starting when I was 17 years old. My career in show business started in Louisville, Kentucky. I moved to Orlando 26 years ago (1987) and landed a job at the Parliament House (Orlando’s Premiere Gay Entertainment Destination) as a foot light player. I was at the PHouse for 4 years.

I decided is was time to move on and left there to win over 20 pageant titles. I was able to travel quite a bit across the nation and across Florida. After this, I became show Director at Southern Nights. This gig lasted for four years. I had the opportunity to work at AmEvening at LaCage as Patsy Cline and Stevie Nicks.


I continued traveling while starting my partnership with Nancy Gilman with Ritzy Rags Wigs & More in 1995. Went to work at Cold Keg in Melbourne, Florida, where I remained for 5 years. I also worked as director at Friday Nights.



I left “Friday Nights” and have become a 6 year running show at Hamburger Mary’s Orlando. With my Cabaret Dinner Show and Leigh Shannon’s Illusions IN Revue. The Illusions IN Revue has been feature in conventions, corporate events and the Hennegar Center in Melbourne, Florida.


I had the opportunity to produce, narrate, star and a feature film “My Fair Lidy” which is now out on DVD.”


Leigh is now pursuing a reality show, and/or his own version of Last Drag Standing for a main stream cable channel.

“My goal is now to continue to grow in all new directions of entertainment. I will continue to to work at my store with Cancer Patients and many types of people who shop there.

Main goal: to live life …. to the fullest.”
