Where Is Blood on the Dance Floor Now?
While the band was formed in 2006, they didn’t last long, ending their music career in 2016. Dahvie Vanity, the singer of the band, faced multiple allegations of sexual assault, many involving minors. With this came a lot of hate from fans, which resulted in the band getting blacklisted from tours and music streaming sites. Blood on the Dance Floor’s merch was removed from Big Cartel in 2018 and their music was removed from Spotify and Google Play in 2019. By then, however, Monroe had already removed themselves from the band — they left the band in 2016 after seven years as a member, breaking up the band but paving the way for their solo career.
Monroe was born in August 1991 in Florida. The teen sensation started out by attending punk rock shows at the age of 15, just like many of their fans. This led to Monroe’s queer awakening and a career in drag. During their time in Blood on the Dance Floor, Monroe had already started practicing drag. Many knew they had a love for makeup, so this was no surprise. Yet, their time in Blood on the Dance Floor was not what they thought it would be. Monroe has since released a statement detailing the real reason they left the band: They faced abuse and threats to stay.

Years later, Monroe is now a successful drag queen. A drag queen is usually a male or nonbinary person who dresses up in “drag” to exaggerate female qualities. Some describe “drag queens” as female impersonators; however, the point is to overemphasize feminine qualities to call attention to the fact that they are not women. As RuPaul once said, “I do not impersonate females! How many women do you know who wear seven-inch heels, four-foot wigs and skintight dresses? I don’t dress like a woman; I dress like a drag queen!”
Monroe joined Season 2 of “The Boulet Brother’s Dragula,” a reality TV competition show that celebrates underground and alternative drag art, which distinguishes it from other drag shows. Monroe competed under the name “The Dahli,” but was unfortunately eliminated in the fourth episode of the season. They were brought back in “The Boulet Brother’s Dragula Resurrection,” but once again, they were eliminated from the competition. Monroe was then recast in the fourth season and won the crown of “The World’s Next Drag Supermonster” at the end of Episode 10.
Monroe’s drag name, Dahli — which references the famous Spanish artist Salvador Dali — was given to them by their drag mother, Lady O. In the world of drag, queens can acquire their names through a “drag mother,” making them a drag daughter; drag mothers and daughters have a mentor/apprentice relationship. Unfortunately, Lady O has since passed away. Monroe now has their own drag children, one of which is Astrud Aurelia, who also competed in Season 4 of “The Boulet Brother’s Dragula.” The other three drag children go by the names “Worst Nimare,” “Pup Dom” and “Boss.”
Hall describes his initial thoughts on Vanity saying, “he was a good dude […] he was always so nice. He went out of his way to be nice to people. He just had that instant charm about him.”
Hall says much of the band and crew were really separated; that no one liked being around Vanity for long periods of time because he was obnoxious. He says they saw stuff but never with underaged girls. It was always someone of age or someones mom.
Hall goes on to describe how all of the victims stories make sense in hindsight; that all of the timelines add up. He recounts an experience he had on his first tour with Blood On The Dance Floor where Dahvie Vanity brought three of age people on the bus. Two were females and one was male.
Hall goes on to say Vanity was smart and thats how he was able to do the things he did. “He was very good at being a shitty person,” Hall says. He describes how Vanity would get close to the parents with his personality and offering free merch and that allowed him to get away with a lot more.
“Well, he really wasn’t. And it was kept at such a distance too where Jayy wasn’t present enough to see anything. They were two completely different people, they just happened to be in the same band. They would hang out together sometimes but it was really forced. There was barely a friendship there.”
