Drag Performer and Reality Star

Drag queens, especially those featured on RuPaul’s Drag Race, can get a bad rap as divas with few social graces. So when Monsoon refers to herself as “a gorgeous anachronism,” she means she has actual talent and good manners. Probably the only narcoleptic Jewish drag queen from Seattle you’ll ever meet, she turned her win on this season of the reality show into a successful New York City cabaret gig, The Vaudevillians, which has attracted celebrity guests like Joan Rivers and earned several extensions. We think we’ll be seeing this triple threat with a heart of gold on stages for a long time to come.
