Years of dedication and hard work paid off for this controversial comedian and drag queen.

Long before her success on RuPaul's Drag Race, she appeared on MTV, A&E, and the Travel Channel. A staple at gay Mardi Gras events and private parties, this comfortable niche soon opened wide to include mainstream venues and straight audiences on an international level.
