In 1976 at an audition for the rock group, The Tubes, Doris met fellow drag queen, Tippi, and they became roommates. In 1977 San Francisco gay leaders urged no drag on Gay Freedom Day. Doris and many other drags turned out in force. At a come-as-your-favorite-Fellini-character party in 1979 Mills met Miss X who wasn't yet serious about doing drag, but by the end of the year Doris Fish, Tippi and Miss X were performing as Sluts-A-Go-Go.
Throughout the 1980s Doris Fish was one of the most prominent drag queens in San Francisco. On stage, Doris Fish performed for over ten years in San Francisco with Miss X and Tippi as Sluts A-Go-Go. Sluts A-Go-Go performed in venues like Club 181 with shows such as Nightclub of the Living Dead, along with other performers such as Sandelle Hebert and Tommy Pace. In 1986, Doris and Tippi did a weekly cable news show about the gay community, although some viewers complained that Doris was a negative stereotype.
As a visual artist Doris painted hyper-realistic canvases depicting of drag queens, although her favorite subject was herself. Doris Fish was her own greatest work, her face and body receptacles for the paint and powder he used to create herself as a "Fucking Goddess". As she once said, "If I could, I would paint my eyeballs.
Her major legacy is the cult camp classic film Vegas In Space, which she co-wrote and starred in with Phillip Ford.
A few years ago, she fell face-first into a make-up table. The resulting brain damage and overuse of eye shadow set her life on a new trajectory. She will show up where you are and yell something hilarious and stupid at you WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. Ariel is here; get used to it.
She's the type to catch your eye. She's your new third-favorite drag queen. She's loud, she's cheap, she's gorgeous, and she's fresh out of fucks.
