Diana Prince is the drag alter-ego of Jon Jones. Jon was born in Oklahoma City in 1975 to loving and adoring parents. He attended and graduated from a private, Christian school and was active in his church throughout his childhood. This upbringing led him to a Baptist college outside Oklahoma City to complete his degree in Elementary Education. He has also completed his Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and is working on completing his Doctorate in Education Degree. During his first year in college, he met Matthew Cox and knew that he had found his soul mate. They will be celebrating their 16th anniversary together this April.
Jon moved to Las Vegas in 1998 with Matthew to accept a teaching position with the Clark County School District. In his 13 years of teaching, Jon has taught first, second, and third grades; and currently works as an elementary literacy specialist. In his spare time, he has been a volunteer for Las Vegas PRIDE for many years in many different capacities.
Diana Prince was born in November, 2009, for the Palm Springs Pride Parade. She began her performance career shortly after at Flex Lounge in Las Vegas, where she honed her drag look and attitude. She had the help and encouragement of several friends and fellow queens to get her started. Kenneth Blake, JewDi Vine, Diva Delafuente, Ernie Yuen, and Matthew Cox all played key roles in the creation of Diana Prince. Now, just over a year later, she is gratefully accepting the title of Miss Las Vegas PRIDE 2011.
