Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About Jinkx Monsoon
RuPaul has spoken, hunties, and your next drag superstar is the one and only Jinkx Monsoon! The “Sleeper from Seattle” swept the competition in season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. As a Seattle resident, I have had the pleasure of watching Ms. Monsoon perform at countless events, and I can say without a doubt that she is one of the most captivating performers you will ever watch. It’s no surprise that America has fallen in love with Jinkx after watching her dominate Snatch Game, triumph in the Telenovela challenge, or bring joy to a veteran who may have killed Judy Garland. Jinkx Monsoon truly is a super star, ladies and gentlemen.
Another Seattle-based talent, filmaker Alex Berry, has followed Jinkx on her journey to drag stardom for some time now. Dubbing the film Drag Becomes Him, Berry presents us with an intimate look inside Jinkx’s journey to the top. The first four installments are available on YouTube, and Berry assures me more is coming soon. Make sure you keep a close eye on his YouTube channel.
I can’t wait to see what Jinkx does next. I also have to admit that I had the pleasure of doing a hot and heavy make-out scene with Jinkx in one of her Funny Or Die videos (click that link right there to see), which was truly a blast. Jinkx it, girl. Jinkx it.
