is a franchise with a steady-growing audience. On Wednesday, A Drag Queen Christmas: The Naughty Tour

brings together six RPDR
fan favorites who will jingle your balls and spread holiday cheer.
Known to be “large and in charge,” and “chunky but funky,” Latrice “mutha fuckin’” Royale always brings down the house with her electrifying stage presence and Beyoncé-inspired dance moves.
Native Texan Farrah Moan describes her look as a cross between fetish, old-school Hollywood and retro glam. As for her name, it’s a combination of the drag star’s 1970s idol, Farrah Fawcett, and the word “moan” — because she’s admittedly “a whore.”
Vanessa “Miss Vangie” Mateo
The first queen eliminated from RPDR
season 10, Vanessa Mateo made a name for herself when she uttered the now infamous phrase-turned viral meme, “Miss Vangie,” and walked backwards as she left the stage.
Monét X Change

Brooklyn queen Thorgy Thor is mostly known for competing on season eight of RPDR
, but she is also an accomplished musician who’s performed at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center. She once famously stated that RPDR
has made it more difficult for drag performers who are not on the show to build a career.
