PYGMALION has just announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race winners Alaska 5000 and Monét X Change will be performing the first day of the festival, Thursday September 21st.

When I say Alaska and Monét are Drag Race royalty, it’s not an exaggeration. They are two of the most successful and well-known queens to come out of the show, boasting three million Instagram followers between them. Both queens have competed in multiple seasons of Drag Race. Alaska was the runner up on the fifth season of the show, and went on to win the second season of Drag Race All Stars, where she delivered her instantly iconic Mae West impersonation for that season’s Snatch Game. Monét won Miss Congeniality for her run on season ten, before going on to win the fourth season of All Stars. She returned to the show again to compete in the all-winners season, where she placed runner-up, losing out to comedy queen Jinkx Monsoon.

These two are sure to put on a fantastic show — buy your tickets early if you don’t want to miss out.
