Devin

Devin is a cisgender gay man. By day he is your friendly neighborhood hipster barista, but by night he is a regionally renowned boylesque performer – the official term for male burlesque dancers. He has performed and successfully competed in shows across the country, including boylesque hotbeds like Las Vegas and New York. Devin has a reserved persona but comes alive in front of a camera or onstage. Devin grew up in a small town in a typically religious southern family. He struggled at times with being accepted in the family, but now has a wonderful relationship with his mother – she designs and makes many of his costumes. Devin is an animal lover and shares his home with both a roommate and many animals, including a dog and several snakes. He also likes to cook and is a movie buff.
