YOLO ONO (Toni Villaseñor-Marchal) started their drag life under the tutelage of Wanda Screw. Prior to their introduction, Yolo was a miserable Ph.D. student in the sciences with a ravenous and underfed creative side. Currently Yolo uses drag as an artistic lens through which they can showcase their cultural heritage (Native American, Mexican, and Japanese), observable in the fashion and wearable art they create. In early 2017 Yolo was accepted into the Fashion, Body, and Garment graduate program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In this program, Yolo plans to hone their skills and passion into a career that will allow them to bring all aspects of their identity into an artistry that illuminates and questions facets of the human experience across cultural, societal, and biological levels.
