James St. James is the stagename of New York City-based drag performer James Clark.


James is an original New York-Club Kid, and has history with big names like Vivacious and even RuPaul herself. He also had friends hailing from the LA Club Scene, like Raja and Mathu Andersen. He does not necessarily have a small status, either:

He was a prominant figure in the club-scene from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.

He is still active as a drag performer. Although he says he only performs twice a month he is still a very respected name within the drag community.


James hosts a webshow called "Transformations" on the WOW YouTube-channel. It is a show in which he lets several queens from RuPaul's Drag Race give him a makeover in their signature style or any other style if they want to. Noteable guests include Raven, Bianca Del Rio, Bob The Drag Queen, Miss Fame, and Alyssa Edwards.


  • James interviewed the cast of Season 3 during the premiere.
  • James was on an episode of "Hey Qween!" hosted by Jonny McGovern.
  • James claims he was the first New York Club Kid, or at least there from the beginning.
