RuPaul has a lot on his plate. Coming off the success of Drag Race UK, his new hit Netflix series AJ and the Queen, a big Saturday Night Live hosting announcement, and now he’s given us the brand new cast announcement! Finally, our favorite show is back and with some incredible queens to boot. Here’s a little introduction to each of the queens announced for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12, debuting FebRUary 28th!
Aiden Zhane Acworth, Georgia
Aiden is chock-full of originality. She draws inspiration from horror films and Marilyn Manson.
Brita New York, New York
Brita may not be a stranger to your television set. If you kept up with my recaps from a few years back, she was a featured queen on Fusion TV’s Shade: Queens of NYC. She is a hardworking queen dedicated to her craft, working nearly seven days a week!
Crystal Methyd Springfield, Missouri
A self-proclaimed “attention addict”, Crystal’s colorful and unique looks are going to be so much fun to see on the mainstage! Plus, I heard she has a great sense of humor.
Dahlia Sin Los Angeles, California
Hailing from the Haus of Aja, this queen slays with her looks. She will certainly be one to watch each week on the runway!
Gigi Goode Los Angeles, California
Gigi has been taking Los Angeles by storm! Her Instagram is like scrolling through a high-fashion magazine. I can’t wait to see what she brings to the competition.
Heidi N Closet Ramseur, North Carolina
As you can tell by her name, Heidi is a lot of fun. She’s a dancer and an artist ready to take the world by storm with her infectious personality!
Jackie Cox New York, New York
Another hardworking New York City queen is here! She’s found a home on the cabaret stage and loves to write her own shows. I’d try to get her on my team for the acting challenges if I were on the show.
Jaida Essence Hall Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Jaida strives to be the essence of glamour and it seems like she’s accomplished it! This beauty queen originally wanted to work in fashion, now she gets to be the model for her own designs!
Jan New York, New York
Another New York City queen? Sure, Jan. Jan is a musical theatre queen and skilled singer ready to showcase her pop diva talent on the mainstage.
Nicky Doll New York, New York
Nicky may reside in New York City, but her original home is Paris, France! She’s the first-ever queen from France to hit the mainstage! She’ll be bringing us European catwalks and high fashion every week.
Rock M. Sakura San Francisco, California
FINALLY, another queen from my hometown joins the cast! Rock M. Sakura is all about comedy, makeup, and death drops. She’s a self-described amalgamation of anime, manga, and anything pink.
Sherry Pie New York, New York
Sherry Pie is campy but polished. Drawing inspiration from Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett, she’s sure to be a hoot!
Widow Von’DU Kansas City, Missouri
Widow is a loud and proud dancing queen. I’d hate to be in the bottom two against her! She turns it out with her looks and performances.
That’s the cast, y’all! What a great group of queens. Which team will you be reppin’? Let us know in the comments below! I can’t wait to chat with you all season long!
