Drag Race’s Jinkx Monsoon Comes Out As Non-Binary: “I Choose To Educate Rather Than Get Upset”

Jinkx Monsoon, the winner of the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, has come out as non-binary.

“Because this apparently needs to be repeated… I am male bodied, I prefer to identify as non-gendered/non-binary. I prefer They/Them,” Jinkx wrote on Twitter.

Jinkx went on to explain how long they have identified as non-binary:

“I’ve never identified as fully male,” Jinkx told Queerty earlier this year. “I’ve always identified as more gender fluid or gender ambiguous, but I never knew the vocabulary to explain it for myself.”

“Embracing that in myself meant that I started to embrace the fact that there are a lot of people out there that really like gender fluid people. So now I’m meeting all these hot guys who would have been into me this whole time if I just knew how to find them!”
