After auditioning for nine seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nina West was ready to throw in the make up smeared towel when she finally got that life changing phone call.
We all could see it in her eyes on every episode of Drag Race “I can’t believe I’m finally here.” Nina went on to win people’s hearts and became Miss Congeniality.
As one of the most generous drag queens on Drag Race, Nina West has raised over two million dollars for local and national charities through her charitable fund The Nina West Foundation.
As a drag queen who reads to adults as well as children, Nina’s had to face haters from both sides, with some conservatives accusing her of corrupting children while others say she’s watering down the edgy nature of drag.
But one of the most punk thing you can do is treat everyone with kindness and fearlessly be yourself.
Today Nina West, from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 joins us to talk about her adventures after becoming Miss Congeniality. This Friday Nina passes on the torch to this season’s winner. Will this season’s winner be ready for the crown?
