Jeremy Mikush as "Crystal Powers"
Jeremy Mikush, also known as Crystal Powers or Handsome Jeremy, comes from a family of musicians who never felt they could be one professionally, as good as they could sing or play. They encouraged Jeremy’s creativity nonetheless. He went to UCLA to get a PhD in Musicology in gender studies in opera from the 1600s; and simultaneously was also being mentored and becoming a part of the Radical Faerie community in the mid 2000s into the 2010s.
Now he creates music and does drag performances as a time-traveling intergalactic priestess named Crystal Powers. For the last five year’s he’s been touring and performing with the well-known artist, Alaska Thunderfuck.
