Drag Name Origin

"I got my drag name in March 2019, and it was help given to me by a guy that I was talking to at the time and we ended up just chatting and then the conversation moved to drag, bear in mind I hadn’t a drag name yet, then he decided that he liked the name ‘crystal’ for me and I liked it, whilst I liked the name ‘Versace’ for a while, I just put two and two together and voilà. But then a while after that I decided that Krystal with a k was more me and so the name stuck since!"[5]
