Kelly Mantle

Welcome to the July issue of Diversity Rules Magazine. This month’s issue features Kelly Mantle who stars in a movie filmed in the Albany, NY region, entitled, “A Lasting First Impression.”

Kelly Mantle plays Charleigh, a cabaret performer on a journey to self-acceptance and love after being disowned and rejected by her parents and brother, David, for being a drag queen. When David is killed in an alleyway, his wife is given his cracked cell phone where she discovers texts between her husband and another woman. Assuming the messages are from her dead husband’s mistress, she confronts Charleigh at her place of work, a drag show palace. Thus begins a comedy of mistaken identity that would be hilarious if it weren’t for all the pent-up emotions from a traumatic past that both women are forced to confront in their fateful meeting.
