Anita Buffem

Born and raised outside of Syracuse, NY it wasn’t until a move to New York City in 2004 with only a backpack and a soul full of determination that the character of Anita was fully realized. The drive for success was fueled by a calling to bring joy, positivity and a sense of inclusion to anyone who's felt like an outsider.

With a background in performance and a natural intuition for comedy, Anita has traveled the US as the producer, creative director, and star of, "The Haus Of Mimosa" an award winning musical comedy duo created in 2007. It's these travels and the production work with "Mimosa" that led to a new path which includes comedy, beauty, style, and wellness. 

“Anita Buffem, Beauty Starlet” has co-produced and co-written for numerous digitally released web-series including “The Anita & Gina Marie Show” and the solo spin-off “The Anita Buffem Show” (GaySVTV). In 2017 Anita appeared along side “RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars Miz cracker, Monét Exchange, and Bob The Drag Queen as part of REVRY TV’s, “The Drag Roast of Sherry Vine”. 

Anita can be seen DJ-ing at the hottest bars, clubs, and resorts creating a stylish, fun, and comfortable vibe. Previous live events include hosting/performing for MAC VIVA Glam Pride Event, several “It Gets Better” events, Joe's Pub, 54 Below at Studio 54, Tyra Banks' “T-Zone” Fundraiser, various community events, DJ-ing at The Pavillion at Fire Island Pines, Central Park Summer Stage, The Asbury Hotel Tea Dance at Asbury Park (famous for it's music scene), The OUT NYC Resort and Hotel, and many more. 

Anita has received accolades and awards from Gay City News, TIME OUT NY, The Glammy’s (NYC’s premiere nightlife awards), The Heritage of Pride, CBS NY, Odyssey Magazine, to name a few. 

The summer of 2016 Anita's career as a DJ took another leap after being given a summer residency with SALT Hotels for their Asbury Park location playing to diverse crowds from families and millennials, to trendy New Yorkers on weekend getaways.

With almost a decade of accomplishments, today feels like it's just the beginning for Anita. “I’ve gone through an unexpected rebirth and I have never felt more honest, more beautiful, and more alive than I do when I'm performing, playing music, and creating a positive vibe for audiences. I’m excited to continue this journey of health, beauty, and love uplifting others through comedy & music.”
