Whether in the boxing ring or on stage at the drag show, Diamante was a commanding presence to behold.
With his light feet and quick reflexes, he was a rising, if unconventional, star in a boxing scene usually dominated by straight alpha males.

As it turned out, he had all the moves.
He just needed the right touch to help him make his big debut.
