As Goode illustrates their love for fashion you can feel the depth of the marriage that bonds themself and the runway. “It’s always been a dream of mine to walk a runway, ever since I was a kid tying a blanket around my waist and stealing my mum’s heels from Target, walking back and forth down the hallway all night long,” they reminisce.

The captivating Barbie-like icon gushes about their ultimate dream and where they clearly saw themself fitting-in among Drag Race Alumni: “I’d like to bring a little humor and campiness. My golden rule in life is to not take things too seriously, so in that respect I’m obsessed with Jeremy Scott and Moschino, that would be my number-one dream. My introduction to Jeremy Scott was his spring 2015 Barbie collection—I can remember playing with Barbie since I was two years old. That is the dictionary definition to me of where camp meets fashion, and that is so my drag.” We are so floored by your presence and transparency.

The “e” in Goode may be silent, they are not. Goode came out as gender fluid, standing as a role model for all those identifying the same.

In a separate interview with MTV in June 2020, Goode addresses the topic, “In the moment, speaking about that, I really had no idea how this was going to go, which direction it was going to take. And I’m still happy to say that there are people who really, really identified with that. There are people who took that as a means of permission, in a sense, to speak to family members, their friends, and come out and be who they authentically are. It’s a kind of a responsibility that holds a lot of pressure, but also I really cherish that. It’s really amazing that I can have that kind of effect on anyone.”

Very appropriately, they describe themself: “I’m not just good, I’m incredible.”
