Kevin Aviance (born Eric Snead on June 22, 1968 in Richmond, Virginia) is an American female impressionist, dance musician, and fashion designer. He is a very popular personality in New York City's gay scene and is the founding member of the House of Aviance, a local gay performer's group. He is known for his trademark phrase, "Work. Fierce. Over. Aviance!"

He has appeared in several films, including Flawless starring Robert De Niro and the independent film Punks. Besides his feature-film work he has made guest appearances on such shows as the The Tyra Banks Show, and America's Next Top Model, also hosted by Tyra Banks. His songs "Din Da Da," "Alive," and "Give It Up" have reached the top of the Billboard dance chart.

On June 10, 2006 while exiting the Phoenix, a popular gay bar located in the East Village, Manhattan, he was robbed and beaten by a group of men who yelled anti-gay slurs at him. Four suspects were arrested on hate-crime charges, but reports say up to seven men were involved in the attack.[1] He suffered a broken jaw but it appears that he was able to participate in the events of the city's gay pride parade scheduled for the end of June 2006. Kevin was the brightest star at Pride 2006.
