Meet Timmy Patterson Jr. ……
God blessed Timmy with the gift of dance and academic excellence. Timmy’s educational journey started in New York City and then to Virginia Beach, VA. Timmy was accepted into the Old Donation Middle School Dance Program and then went to Salem High School and the Governor’s School for the Arts, concurrently. During his high school years, Timmy was also an instrumental part in many external dance companies and productions to include Spotlight Productions, Kempsville Dance Team, Denise Wall’s Dance Studio, The Virginia Tattoo Company, The Virginia Children’s Choir, The Academy of Classical
and Contemporary Dance, The Virginia Ballet Theater, Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive Program and Goucher College Summer Dance Program (with a full scholarship) and many more. Timmy graduated High School with Academic Honors and in the top 10% of his graduating class.
Timmy was offered numerous college scholarships but finally settled on George Mason University (GMU) where he was awarded a full scholarship to major in Dance and minor in English. During his freshman year at GMU, Timmy was a principal dancer featured on the school’s billboards, flyers and brochures. During his time with GMU Timothy had the honor of working with Bill T. Jones, David Parsons, Camille Brown, and Ori Flomin. After receiving his Associate Degree, Timmy’s light was shining bright and he decided to move to the Big Apple. And not long after he arrived, he took a huge bite. He landed roles as a principal dancer, with his first professional contemporary and ballet dance companies, BALLET INC. & Eryc Taylor Dance, Todd Rosenlieb, Debra Thorpe and the Todd Rosenlieb Dance Company.
Timmy also worked as stylist and designer for the infamous Patricia Field, which led him to perform at New York’s Fashion Week many many times. One of his proudest moments was when he met RuPaul, JaQuel Knight (Beyonce’ Choreographer), Vanessa Williams, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, among many others. The thing is, to know Timmy is to know he didn’t just meet them–they met HIM.
Ready or not, here SHE comes, the world welcomes Kiara! Timmy used his gifts of dance, theater and fashion to create a beautiful soul, Kiara. She transcended audiences with grace, class and exceptional pose and talent. And, Timmy did his own make up, another extraordinary talent. Performing began locally in the Hampton Roads area but quickly grew to NYC and LA. Instantly gaining her immediate notoriety and a huge fan base on Social Media. During the pandemic she created, produced and co-hosted (with her friend Steven (Bitch Pudding)) the award-winning Digital Drag Show on Twitch, aired every Friday night. Their show has been featured in Rolling Stone Billboard Magazine and the Wall Street Journal.
Timmy LOVED the LGBTQIA community, this is what made his heartbeat. He was adamant that everyone would have a safe place to stay, food, a car ride, treated with respect and dignity; but more than anything loved unconditionally – no limits or barriers. Because of his passion for equality and dignity you would find him marching for Gay Rights in NYC and at his local PRIDE events. Timmy was pure joy to everyone he met, he was loved by so many and taken way too soon. We will never stop fighting for his honor and relentlessly holding those accountable for this tragedy. Timmy was killed by Fentanyl and “Friends” but will always be remembered by all with LOVE.
