RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. has been quite a ride -- we'll get into that later. Two episodes in we've seen some stunning competitors depart the competition and some pretty solid lip-syncs. But also we've seen some coming outs.

In the second episode, competitor Bimini Bon Boulash tried to show their pride in being nonbinary on the Main Stage. They had a reveal plan where they would pop balloons decorating their corset to reveal the colors of the Trans Pride Flag. While things didn't work out as they had hoped, they let the world know on social media shortly after airing. In this week's episode, competitor Ginny Lemmon opened up in the Werk Room.

In this week's Maxi Challenge the queens are tasked with a "Who Wore It Better" runway. they are forced to outdo one another after being given the same box of monochromatic materials as one of their competitors. Lemon, who has stood out for their continued reliance on yellow in looks. In the episode, they explained that was because of the color's healing properties.

"It's also the nonbinary color," Lemon explained. "I've always struggled with my identity and uh, sorry it's just a bit much but, for years and years I didn't know what I was; I didn't know whether I was a boy or a girl, I just didn't know. That's why I wear level because it doesn't say anything, it doesn't define me as anything." They told Sister Sister. In a confessional, they explained that for them drag is a release..

Later they talked about finding community and the journey to self-love before connecting with Boulash. The pair connected over their identity.

"I think it's always a difficult conversation to have," Boulash said in the Werk Room. Especially when some people don't understand, some people don't quite get it it can be emotional."

"Nonbinary isn't a new thing," they continued in a confessional. "It's just a new term that's just basically someone that doesn't feel like they are either masculine or feminine, they kind of float between the two. As humans we are so complex that having a binary to fit everyone into it, either male or female, just doesn't make sense when there's 7 billion-plus people in the world."
