Best Transsexual DJ: Andria Michaels

Tall, lean, and very, very mean, Andria Michaels is Cleveland's DJ diva. She struts a stage four nights a week (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at Pump, and Thursday at Metropolis), but she reserves her rawest, bawdiest material for Thursday night. Inebriated men are lured to the stage and invited to striptease for Andria; by the time they find out she's a he, they're laughing too damn hard to care. Michaels is a drag queen with a message: Comedy has no sexual identity.
