Zelina Duval is a native New Yorker born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx. Selina’s journey to what you see today didn’t come without it’s challenges. Coming out at 16, Zelina left home due to lack of compassion and understanding from their family. The person you see today is an individual who has come through difficult times, with determination and inner strength that they were able to develop themselves through the help and support of others. A licensed cosmetologist and regional artist for Tom Ford Beauty, Zelina is an active member of The Imperial Court of NY. Joining the court created opportunity to assist with fundraising for many LGBTQ organizations. “I started off as a diamond in the rough. Eight years ago I was thrown into the Miss Stonewall pageant by my good friend Judy Paige Monroe. I was very green, yet it was my start being part of the drag community. The past several years I’ve utilized my persona as an instrument to give back to the community. I’ve used my same determination, and finally achieved winning the coveted title of Miss Fire Island 2022. This was no easy task and it took a village to assist me in my win. I am honored to share this title and my talents as well as bring love, light, laughs and awareness within our community. I appreciate the opportunity to share my story and I only wish we had platforms like this growing up. It’s organizations and people within our community to allow others the opportunity to share their story in hopes of helping others along the way, and to inspire future generations. And remember to Spread Love Not Hate.”
