Honard originally moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. Dissatisfied with the auditioning process, he turned to drag and got a job at the West Hollywood club Fubar. He frequently performed in the Trannyshack shows in Los Angeles. In 2009, he performed in Palm Springs Gay Pride with Tammie Brown and Jer Ber Jones.
