Drag Name Origin[]

Timothy chose Latrice Royale as his drag name because he knew a girl named Latrice, and Royale sounded like something very delicious and very chocolate. He chose the name so he could enter an amateur drag night contest in the mid 1990's at the infamous Fort Lauderdale club "The Copa". The drag night was run by Tiffany Arieagus, who became her drag mother.
