How often do you get grilled for RuPaulโ€™s Drag Race Season 10 spoilers, and how do you react?

Every time I walk out the door or pick up a phone! I know better than to reveal any important plot points. The producers of RuPaulโ€™s Drag Race ainโ€™t playing.

Your skin is amazing. Whatโ€™s your skincare routine like?

Cleanse, tone, eye cream and hydrate.

If you could only lip-sync to one artist for the rest of your drag career, who would it be?

Towkio.

11 years ago you were the youngest person ever crowned Miss Gay USofA. How did winning competitions like that prepare you for Drag Race?

Competing in pageants taught me discipline. You gotta be all in it to win it - mentally, physically and emotionally.

What were some of your favorite moments from RuPaulโ€™s DragCon LA 2018? 

Getting to hang out with the other queens was so much fun, but meeting all the young kids who have the support of their families was, without a doubt, my favorite part of the weekend.

Give us a tease of your event coming up on June 22 in Minneapolis at Union Rooftop!

Prepare yourself for the joining of the two most fabulous things on earth: feathers and rhinestones.
