Join Portland Ovations and Pride Portland’s Parade Emcee, Chartreuse Money for an hour of stories and art in honor of Pride! Start your day with a glamorous expert storyteller who uses the art of drag to read books and lead craft projects, then follow Chartreuse to the 2024 Pride Portland Parade and Festival. This fun, fabulous literary experience fosters learning and play, encouraging children and their caregivers to celebrate all kinds of difference in a creative and joyful space.

Chartreuse Money (she/they/he), also known as Jake (he/they), has been a working drag entertainer since 2018 when she learned to love herself through the acceptance of the queer community in Portland. Chartreuse holds a Bachelors of Arts in Dance with a concentration in Education and Choreography. Having worked 4 years as a full time educator in public schools and as a full time choreographer at theaters across Mid-Coast Maine, Lewiston/Auburn, and the Greater Portland area, Chartreuse has an extensive background in working with children and young adults (as well as grown up adults too!). Chartreuse has appeared on News 8 WMTW and News Center Maine for her work hosting Drag Queen Story Times across Maine. She has also appeared in theatrical productions Maddy’s Theatre at The Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine, most recently as Frack in GRUFF: An Epic Fairytale Eco-Musical (2023), and as Yellow Dragon in Dragons Love Tacos (2022). Chartreuse has been the Host/Emcee for Pride Portland for the past two years, and most recently won the title as Portland’s Best Drag Personality for the Portland Old Port Best of 2023 Awards.
