Drag Race Queens Twitch

The current pandemic has meant that many drag artists – even RuPaul’s Drag Race queens – have turned to streaming platform Twitch to reach their audience.

And while some RuPaul’s Drag Race queens have gone all in on gaming, as is typical for Twitch, others are focused on performance, music or simply chatting with fans.

In short, Twitch has opened up a whole new way for fans to connect with their favourite queens, so with that in mind here are the RuPaul’s Drag Race queens you maybe didn’t know were on Twitch.

Detox – TheOnlyDetoxOfficial

She might be new to the world of Twitch, but RuPaul’s Drag Race queen Detox is rapidly growing her fanbase on the platform. As every good drag streamer should be, she’s obsessed with
Dead by Daylight but she’s also a huge Mortal Kombat fan so expect some shady fatalities soon.

Ongina – onginatv

Another
DbD fan, Ongina streams games both in and out of drag. The season one RuPaul’s Drag Race queen is one of the most popular on Twitch, streaming the likes of Final Fantasy XIV and Nintendo games, as well as drag transformations and even cooking streams – most recently Dona Tarte’s charity Bake Off.

Just Jaremi – JustJaremi

Formerly Phi Phi O’Hara, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Jaremi leans into his nerdy side on his Twitch channel. One of the most regular streamers on this list, he’s a variety streamer covering everything from
Stardew Valley to Pokemon, Valorant and The Sims 4

Juice Boxx – juiceboxxtwitch

Another RuPaul’s Drag Race queen new to Twitch is Canadian queen Juice Boxx. She may have left the competition first, but she’s rapidly amassing a fanbase of gamers as she plays a variety of games like
DbD, Zelda and Kingdom Hearts on her 80s-inspired backdrop. Also, fans of Canada’s Drag Race should know that Boa has also just joined the platform and is set to stream soon.

Bob The Drag Queen – officialbobthedragqueen

It’s no secret that RuPaul’s Drag Race royalty Bob The Drag Queen is a huge Smash Bros fan, regularly competing against Monet X Change and Kim Chi. But she also has a Twitch channel to showcase those skills, as well as her Purse First Music Sessions.

Sum Ting Wong – JustSum

Season One’s Sum Ting Wong is another Dead by Daylight player (honestly, it’s a Twitch rite of passage) but she’s also dabbled in Valorant and chats with fans during her make-up streams. Just look at this awesome Trickster cosplay!

Crystal Methyd – crystalmethyd

The season twelve RuPaul’s Drag Race queen is a big fan of, you guessed it,
Dead by Daylight. But she’s also been known to join Nemesis, Deere and Trashly from the drag team The Stream Queens for a spot of Mario Kart and Smash Bros.

Vivacious – vivaciousnyc

She’s no gamer, but season six’s Vivacious has been regularly DJing throughout the pandemic, building up a strong following. You should tune in, dance in your bedroom to Quarantina Dancerina and keep an eye out for Ornacia too.
