Willow Pill is an adorable, fun, and twisted little doll that hails from both your sweetest dreams and your grossest nightmares. In order to encapsulate the human experience, Willow’s drag is simultaneously joyful & sad, sexy & nasty, jaw-dropping & embarrassing. Willow got her start as a rising starlet in the sticky clubs of Denver, Colorado but now resides in Chicago, Illinois where she has solidified herself as a glorified clown. She is Season 11 Winner Yvie Oddly’s drag sister, so expect the unexpected from Willow Pill.
