Alaska now hosts the show Behind the Drag Queen of the Year Pageant Competition Award Contest Competition with Lola LeCroix.
Call her Alaska Thunderfuck, Alaska 5000 or just Alaska. Whichever you pick, she's the award-winning drag queen who allegedly crash landed on Earth in 1966 in her namesake state and was held in captivity until the '80s.

As might be expected, the alien queen doesn't simply do drag — she has her own fragrance, has released four studio albums, has been in a Sharknado movie and has competed on RuPaul's Drag Race, finishing as runner-up on Drag Race's fifth season and winning the second season of Drag Race All Stars.

And the extraterrestrial just doesn't slow down. She now hosts the show Behind the Drag Queen of the Year Pageant Competition Award Contest Competition with her best friend Lola LeCroix.

Similarly larger-than-life drag performer Tencha La Jefa will host Alaska's two local performances.

$40-$45, 10:30 p.m. and midnight Thursday, Nov. 16, Bonham Exchange, 411 Bonham, table reservations by text only at (210) 386-4537, facebook.com/reylopezentertainment.
