Jojo Zaho (she/her)

After winning Miss first Nations 2017, Jojo Zaho was a contestant on the very first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under.

In 2015 Jojo started her drag career in the New South Wales country town of Dubbo as a political response to a council member stating that homosexuality is not part of the indigenous culture. So for Dubbo’s first annual Central West Pride March she walked the parade in a costumes she made with both the indigenous & gay pride flag and she hasn’t looked back since.

But it was 2017 that everything changed. When she appeared in the inaugural Miss First Nation Indigenous drag queen pageant as well as filmed in the documentary Black Divaz about the competition that launched her drag career.

Since then she has been involved in some fabulous gigs such as making her first television cameo on Get Krackin, being chosen for the Broken Heel Festival mentorship program as well as participating in the 2018 Broken Hill Broken Heel Festival which has lead to her now becoming a Broken Heel festivals first First Nation Glambassador. She has also had the honour of hosting the VIP party for the Newcastle leg of Cher’s Australian tour just to name a few. However most recently Jojo has been placed on the world stage as a competitor in the Stan original series RuPauls Drag Race Down Under where she now holds the unofficial title of Drag Race Down Under’s Porkchop.
