ChelseaBoy, born Brian van der Heijden in Helmond, the Netherlands, is a multidisciplinary drag artist, using their audiovisual storytelling as a tool to explore topics such as identity, gender and sexuality. Taking inspiration from the supernatural domain, their "Gender Hybrid" character aspires to showcase the synergy between our inside and outside world through nostalgic performances filled with extraterrestrial elements. Their ultimate utopian vision is to create a universe governed by the full spectrum of unbridled creativity, inclusivity, self acceptance and love.
