Monét X Change’s Mother has Best Response to Finally Discovering her Son’s Drag Career

Monet X Change Mom

Prepare to sob.

This season of RuPaul's Drag Race, a number of contestants didn't have the best, or rather most open relationships with their mothers, when it came to being a gay drag queen. Growing up from religious households, Dusty Ray Bottoms, Monique Heart, and Monet X Change all had tenuous relationships with their mothers over their sexual identity and career.

Now, however, it seems like we can cross Monet X Change off the list.

This Pride, X Change created a video with The Root, discussing what it was like to grow up gay on the small Island of St. Lucia.

"This PRIDE season, I did a video with 'The Root' about being West Indian and gay, which has apparently been circling around the island of St. Lucia (where I'm from) about who I am, who are my parents, etc. (it's a very small island's been on the evening news)."

"Sooo I just got an incoming call from my mom. Apparently from the many times I tried to explain to her what Drag Race was...she never really understood through the phone," X Change explains. "She doesn't do technology, and does not have VH1 (she ONLY watches Lifetime and HGTV)."

"My mom finally saw the video, and I guess it all clicked. She went online, researched the show, and all about who Monet X Change is. This is what she had to say to me, ' know I love you, and I'm proud of you. I love you.'"

"Getting that love and acceptance from your mommy is unquantifiable...and not something I knew I needed, until I just got it. Happy Pride."
