RuPaul’s Drag Race celebrates its transgender alumni

In honor of LGBTQ+ heritage month, trans members of the Drag Race family gathered together for a legendary photo shoot and behind-the-scenes video. Aja, Peppermint, Gigi Goode, Gottmik, Jiggly Caliente, Kylie Sonique Love, and Laganja Estranja teamed up for a gorgeous photoshoot to honor their inspiring careers.

Aja summed it up perfectly when she said, “As a trans figure in mainstream media right now…. we’re all trailblazing, we’re all leading different paths in different arenas while existing, and giving you more than what you’ve ever expected from this culture.”
