America’s next drag queen superstar
In an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked, Drag Race competitor Sharon Needles, who would ultimately snatch her season’s tiara, revealed that her boyfriend Alaska — Pittsburgh drag queen Justin Andrew Honard — had auditioned for all four seasons of the drag reality competition. Miss Needles, of course, made and won the show on her very first attempt. Ouch. Awkward. Can Alaska finally emerge from her frighteningly famous boyfriend’s shadow? We shall see when she competes on Drag Race season 5, which premieres Jan. 28 on Logo. Alaska, don’t fuck it up!
