At Cville Pride, we are ALL volunteers. Along with the board members, who volunteer to serve as “staff,” we have additional committees, leaders, interns, and volunteers who make everything we do possible.
Dreama Belle, Entertainment Director
Dreama Belle is a drag artist located in the heart of Virginia serving comedy, live musicianship, lip-sync acts, and emcee abilities to audiences of ALL varieties.
She is the proud co-owner of Collaborative Arts Entertainment in which she directs, produces, and performs in many events sponsored under this label. She is the show director of “THE HAUS OF BELLE” produced bi-monthly at The Southern Cafe and Music Hall as well as “Diva Talk” produced at the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar. You can also catch Dreama periodically performing throughout the rest of this vibrant city on the show cast at IMPULSE GAY SOCIAL CLUB (2016-17 Vixen) as well as Fellini’s Drag Brunch when she is not street performing in the historic downtown.
Additionally, Dreama will be serving as the entertainment director and co-emcee for this year’s annual Charlottesville PRIDE festival!
When the current reigning Miss Harrisonburg at Large is not bopping around the bustling scene of the Valley, you can catch her traveling on a consistent basis across the east coast.
Remy St. Clair, Music Director
Host of The Throne Room, a weekly morning show on 101.3 Jamz, Charlottesville’s hip-hop and R&B station, Remy has performed at Cville Pride festivals and will be hosting for a second time in 2017.
