Early life & education
Tiffany was born Henry Williams in Miami, Florida to parents who are both teachers. He graduated from Sunset High School and attended Miami Dade College. There she studied jazz and musical theatre.
Fantasia has been performing in the South Florida drag scene for over ten years. She got her start in college when she needed extra money and wanted something fun to do with friends. The first club she performed at was called Twist. In an interview with SoBeGayNightlife.com she said on her first night performing "A friend of mine asked me if I would join him for this show he was doing. So I went along with it and I earned $10 in tips that first show. That was gas money for the week. It was a fun first experience so I just kept doing it every week." She is set cast at The Palace, a drag bar which has been operating for a quarter of a century. She is most known for her high-energy performances describing herself as "a big ole' ball of energy". She describes herself as a high energy performer with a twist of comedy. Her drag takes a little bit from all aspects of entertainment, with a big influence being the disco era. A couple of moments that Tiffany is known for as a performer is when she kicked her heel off during a show and it wound up in the restaurant's awning. The other moment is when Fantasia threw her wig off during another show, which was snatched by a car going by that never stopped. Tiffany is also interested in acting and music. In 2012 Tiffany made an extra appearance in the film adaptation of the musical, Rock of Ages, where she played a drag queen. In 2016 Fantasia released her first single, My Pussy Wet, a collaboration with Josh Riptide. Tiffany has also appeared on several reality shows including: Alaskan Women Looking for Love, Bad Girls Club: Miami, and Gimme Sugar: Miami.
In 2018 Tiffany made headlines when she was mistakenly detained by Miami Beach police for resembling a criminal named Erol Garret Bland. The incident occurred on Martin Luther King Jr. Day at about six p.m. She had just finished a shift at The Palace and was headed to another gig when she was pulled over by police. Both men are six feet four inches tall and weighed around two-hundred pounds. Tiffany not only fit the physical description of Erol but they were also both wearing similar clothes. Police released Fantasia after about five minutes of detention when they arrested the actual criminal (Bland). Erol was charged with criminal mischief and battery after accosting a woman in a store, following her, punching her, then threatening her with a knife.
