Last Monday, I was able to attend the official RuPaul’s Drag Race finale party at the XL Nightclub, Cabaret & Lounge in New York City, where it was revealed that due to her old-timey comedic quirks and overall sweetness Jinkx Monsoon was crowned America’s next drag superstar.
Though I still found her strange, I was intrigued that, not only was there a drag queen from Pittsburgh, but that she looked how she looked. It was almost as if she had slapped the city’s conservatism in its face. Being unusual not just for a person, but for a drag queen? That takes guts.
