He's funny, campy, quick-witted and doesn't mince words, just like any other drag queen who knows how to work an audience. Marcos, known in some circles as Eclipse B. Child, has a slew of titles in his résumé, including a stint as a former Miss Freddie's for 2011, and as Miss Rouge and Miss Soul Survivor DC in 2012. He even went to the Miss Gay America National Pageant as the first alternate Miss Gay Atlantic States America. But when the wigs and makeup are off, Marcos prefers quieter activities, playing video games, watching movies and reading various medical books and journals. An emergency medicine/trauma nurse by day, this 30-year old former Marine and former dancer makes the rounds at D.C.'s bars, appearing at places as varied as Cobalt, DIK bar and Ziegfeld's/Secrets.

What's on your nightstand?
A book, my stuffed monkey and a bottle of lube.

What's in your nightstand drawer?
Playing cards, condoms, more lube and an electrical unit.

What are your television favorites?
America's Got Talent. I'm a big fan of Charmed, Roseanne. Lately, I've been watching a lot of these renovation shows on HGTV.

What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
The Popples. They were amazing, and I wish they'd come back. Apparently, my mom was very accepting of me as a child, because I had a Rainbow Brite bedspread and all of the Popples dolls.

Who's your greatest influence?
My great-grandmother. She was an amazing woman.

What's your greatest fear?
I have a phobia of little people. It's a clinical phobia, not even something I can control.

Pick three people, living or dead, who you think would make the most fascinating dinner guests imaginable.
Ellen DeGeneres, Roseanne Barr and Vin Diesel. The other two would make for interesting conversation, and he'd be good to look at.

What would you serve?
Sushi. I'd like to see Roseanne Barr try to eat sushi. For Vin Diesel, I'd serve me.

How would you describe your dream guy?
Golden-brown in color.

You sound like you're describing a muffin.
Actually, my dream guy is a muffin. Made by Paula Deen. If it's not Paula Deen, then I don't want it. Because muffins are also a little racist.

So, about that dream guy...
Dark hair, light eyes, lean muscular build. If he's my dream guy, he has clean foreskin, smells good and has a foreign accent. Anything not American. Well-endowed and a bottom.

Define good in bed.
I don't just want a bottom, I want a bottom who knows what they're doing. The best sexual experiences are ones that I can learn something from. And if they happen to scream out in another language, that's amazing.

Who should star in a movie about your life?
My boy side should be played by Zac Efron, and my female side should be played by Angelina Jolie. Cher can be her understudy.

Who was your first celebrity crush?
Scott Baio.

Who gets on your nerves?
People who are extremely conceited for no reason.

If your home was burning, what's the first thing you'd grab while leaving?
My laptop and my drag bag. That stuff's expensive. With the laptop, I'd have my porn, and with the drag bag, I'd have everything I've invested in, so I'd be good to go.

What's your biggest turn-on?
Foreskin.

What's your biggest turn-off?
Scat.

What's something you've always wanted to do but haven't yet tried?
A three-way watersports session.

What's the most unusual place you've had sex?
On the school bus, when I was in high school.

What position do you play in the big baseball game of life?
I'm a top. Fill in the blank.

What's your favorite retail store?
Universal Gear.

What's your favorite food to splurge with?
Anything in a tortilla. Because it's kind of like foreskin.

What's your favorite season?
I love spring as a season, but I like the temperature of the summer.

What kind of animal would you be?
Monkey. I'm obsessed with monkeys.

What kind of plant would you be?
Artificial, because they don't die.

What kind of car would you be?
One that runs. I'm reliable.

What are you most grateful for?
All the good people and opportunities in my life. And the fact that I was born into a country that's a melting pot of people. [Whispers.] Foreskin.

State your life philosophy in 10 words or less.
Live, laugh, love, wash foreskin before putting in mouth.
