Seattle starlet Jinkx Monsoon made her RuPaul's Drag Race debut on Monday night and was totally beguiling.
Her primary achievement in episode 1: Coming out as narcoleptic. As Jinkx explained it (after being caught dozing on a sofa), she refuses to be ashamed of her narcolepsy and is OUT AND PROUD.
After the episode, I sent the following email to Seattle's premiere Jinkx Monsoon historian Adrian Ryan:
Is Jinkx Monsoon a narcoleptic, is Jerick Hofer a narcoleptic, or neither? (My secret dream is that he's faking it as a hilarious character trait for Jinkx, but let me know what you know.)
oh hell no, he's totes faking it. it cracks me up.
I agree. What a way to subvert the drama of RuPaul's Drag Race and the drag world in general: Throw in a queen who may fall asleep at any moment. It's genius. GO JINKX!
(And congratulations on being named Dlisted's Hot Slut of the Day!)
