Jinkx Monsoon went from being our favorite narcoleptic from the Northwest to an international drag superstar after winning Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Drag Becomes Him, a five-part web series detailing the life of Jerick Hoffer a.k.a. Jinkx Monsoon, has been recut as a feature length documentary and the film will now make its television debut on Logo this Thursday, April 13 at 8/7c.
Directed by Alex Berry and produced by Basil Shadid and Dual Power Productions, Drag Becomes Him is a behind-the-scenes foray into the personality and passion of entertainer Jerick Hoffer, also known as Jinkx Monsoon, a drag queen Seattle’s The Stranger dubs “the best f**king performer in Seattle.”
The cherished original series will be expanded to include additional footage and an entirely new edit, offering a deeper glimpse into the life of this charming drag superstar. The lovable season five winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race has performed off-Broadway and won a Gregory Award.
Since being crowned “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” Jinkx has traveled the world starring in her own cabaret show, The Vaudevillians with Major Scales and appearing with her Drag Race family in the Battle of the Seasons and Christmas Queens tours.
If that’s not enough Jinkx for you, she’s also taking over the Logo Instagram account on Thursday so you can get a peek inside her mind through social media.
We’re glad that Jinkx is back on our TV screens for many reasons, including her words of wisdom like this nugget we still use to this day:
