Courtney Act was on the Australian Masked Singer!
If you miss Courtney Act, all you have to do is tune into Australian television to see her! Though she was unmasked during the semi-finals and barely missed landing in the top three, she made history as being the first drag queen to be on the show! Congrats, Courtney!

Trixie mocks Ted Cruz on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
If there’s anything to know about all of us at Werrrk.com, we have two passions: drag queens and mocking Republicans. Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, we got both! To celebrate Ted Cruz’s new book, hilariously titled Unwoke: How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America, Kimmel had none other than Trixie Mattel come in and read it to kids in a drag queen storytime. You HAVE to watch it!
