Watch These Drag Legends Make a Surprise Appearance on “GMA Day”

Hedda Lettuce, Shannel, and Alyssa Edwards were on hand to surprise kid drag queen, Desmond is Amazing.

Morning television just got a lot fiercer.

On a recent episode of the new Good Morning America hour, GMA Day, co-hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines welcomed the 11-year old baby drag queen, Desmond is Amazing, who stole RuPaul’s heart at last year’s DragCon NYC.


After Desmond sashayed onto the set of the morning show, Strahan and Haines talked to Desmond about being a kid drag queen, and how his drag is inspiring to other young fans.

Not only did GMA Day welcome Desmond, but they also surprised the little queen with three other drag legends, Hedda Lettuce, Shannel, and the Dancing Queen herself, Alyssa Edwards.

“You are the future of drag, so you have a lot to live up to,” Hedda told Desmond. The three queens also brought gifts along with them including makeup, and a unicorn bag full of goodies from Alyssa.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
