Born Justin Andrew Honard, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 (or simply Alaska) is best known as the runner-up on the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the winner of the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. What separates Alaska from the dozens of queens who have come before her is her satire, which she incorporates into her high-quality, full-throttle music videos. Unlike some queens, Alaska’s output doesn’t sound or look like a drag queen trying to make songs and music videos. Her clubby dance tracks, which could appear on a playlist between Nicki Minaj and Die Antwoord, poke fun at drag culture and even herself (see “Your Makeup Is Terrible”), which only communicates the level of confidence and poise Alaska has continued to showcase since she stepped into the RuPaul workroom. If you don’t know who Alaska is, or even know much about drag culture, this is pretty much the perfect show to dive into.
