Divina de Campo opens up about gender identity
They said: “Hi I’m Divina. I’m non-binary. It just means the terms male/female don’t ‘fit’ for me. I’m just a person. You can use he, she, they, them. It doesn’t bother me.
“What you see or think isn’t always the same as how I experience the world. How I present to you doesn’t necessarily reflect my reality.
Of their happiness with any pronouns, the drag star clarified: “That’s not the case for everyone. If it does upset someone to be misgendered then don’t be a dick.
“It’s a pretty simple rule for life. We can be kind.”
The announcement was welcomed by other Drag Race stars.
Drag Race UK’s Blu Hydrangea replied “Love you lots 💕”, while Gothy Kendoll wrote: “god i love you”.
Aquaria, the winner of Drag Race US season ten, replied: “You better live this truth! ❤️💙❤️💙💙❤️”.
They are far from the only non-binary Drag Race contestant.
A lot of Drag Race queens identify as non-binary
Season nine queen Valentina explained to Out magazine in January: “I identify as non-binary. I don’t completely feel like a man, I don’t completely feel like a woman. I feel like a goddess. I feel like I’m my own gender.”

Fellow season nine alum Aja also non-binary, explaining to Them: “The whole time this [hasn’t been] a character — it’s really just me in makeup. It’s me, it’s just an extension of my gender identity, and it’s my expression.”
They added: “I do feel like a woman, but I feel comfortable in my body. I don’t feel the need to change anything. I don’t feel the need to appear more feminine to society’s standards.”
Fan favourite Courtney Act identifies as genderqueer, explaining: “There’s a lot of labels and how important they are.
“Once we start living in that truth. For example, genderqueer set me free from feeling not good enough as a man.
“It set me free from not feeling valuable enough, strong enough as a man.”
Courtney Act added: “When I realised my femininity was important and could be celebrated, it laid to rest a lifelong struggle with my gender.
