Elecktra Bionic is the stage name of Mattia Di Renzo,[1] a drag performer and one of the contestants of the first season of Drag Race Italia.

Elecktra was later crowned Italia's Next Drag Superstar at the finale.

Drag Name Origin

Elecktra is the name she would give to her daughter if she had one. Bionic comes from the duality of her drag character that deceives the eye of the beholder, who is never clear if they’re looking at a male or a female. She wanted to have a hybrid sense of sensuality.[7]
