Meet the Logo30: Trixie Mattel

The skinny legend has had a massive year.

Every day during the month of June, we will be spotlighting our 2019 Logo30. This powerful series profiles ordinary and extraordinary people who show pride in unique and provocative ways. Visit the Logo30 homepage to learn more about the series.

Trixie Mattel’s past year has been massive, and she has no plans to slow down. Since winning the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, she has toured the world, topped the iTunes charts, launched Trixie Cosmetics, and become the subject of a new documentary, Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts.

Now that it’s Pride season, Trixie admits she doesn’t really think about what Pride means to her because her life feels like a celebration every day.

“It’s sort of a dark thought but I hope Pride loses its meaning a little bit because we get to be proud all year,” Trixie tells Logo. “In the [Pride] parade on television you see in your small town it’s drag queens and leather daddies hanging out of convertibles. But most gay people don’t wear leather or wigs, and we’re just boring, waiting for the third season of Sabrina. We are all the same.”

Watch Logo’s full interview with Trixie below.
 

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