RuPaul zodiac sign Drag Race Queen Is Your Spirit Animal

Have you been keeping up to date with the latest in RuPaul’s Drag Race Queen?

Hell yeah, you have.

As we’re all aware, Logo TV’s Emmy-Award winning global phenomenon is probably the best reality show in the world. Ever. RuPaul’s mini, maxi, and main challenges just keep getting more outrageous with each season. Better yet, her handpicked crew of zany contestants couldn’t get much sassier. But have you ever stopped to wonder which Drag Race Queen you most closely identify with? Have you ever considered who your spirit animal is according to your zodiac sign? Probably not, to be frank. But the whole process is a spot of fun, so let’s try to figure it out anyway.

Of course, we’ve thrown plenty of slayer Latina queens into the mix for you guys.

Aries

As an Aries, you’re energetic and encouraging yet jealous and bossy. You love a good debate and excel at competitive games. More than anything else in the world, your most burning desire is to be number one.

Ring any bells?

How about Aquaria? The Brooklyn based queen who scored the number one spot last season.

As it so happens, Aquaria is an Aquarius in real life, which we’re willing to bet is the inspiration for her name. Nevertheless, her competitive spirit and winner takes all attitude makes her a bit of an Aries in our books.

Taurus

The Taurus want to own the best of everything and aren’t afraid of getting their hands dirty to get what they want. Then there’s the tendency to be lazy and cheap as well.

Above all else, this reminds us of Valentina. Specifically, when she couldn’t be bothered to learn the lyrics to “Greedy” by Ariana Grande and tried to wear a mask to hide her lousy lip syncing attempt.

“Miss Congeniality,” indeed. Hmmrf.

Leo

The Lion-like Leo is courageous, entertaining, and arrogant. On top of that, they’ve also got a distinct fluffy mane, often a vibrant shade of long blonde or golden locks.

Surely, you can guess who we’ve got in mind by now? Yes, none other than the sassy blonde bombshell known as Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.

Remember when this Puerto Rican beauty lost a lip sync comp of “Ain’t No Other Man,” while none other than Christina Aguilera herself was in the judge’s seat.

Instead of sulking off stage, she gleefully strutted away with her trademark “Miss Vanjie… Miss Vanjie… Miss Vanjie.” Typical Leo behavior, right there.

Libra

Our pick for Libra goes to non-other than the fabulous Puerto Rican Cynthia Lee Fontaine.

In case you don’t remember, she rocked the Miss Congeniality award on season 8 and season 9 despite only being placed tenth overall. That makes her the shortest running contestant to win the coveted viewer’s choice award – not once but twice! Hardly surprising, though, considering she displays common libra attributes such as being charming, lovable, and sincere.

Libras are also famed for dancing the night away, leading Remezcla to question whether she was reinforcing Latino stereotypes. Hah!

Scorpio

Remember Chi Chi DeVayne, the sassy black performer from season 8 of the Drag Race and season 3 of the All-Stars Spinoff?

She’s our pick for the Scorpio’s spirit animal, but it’s more to do with her past than her performances on the show. DeVayne had a tough upbringing which entailed hanging out with gun-toting gangbangers and getting into all sorts of trouble. A school of hard knocks, if you will.

We reckon she only made it out the other side due to her brave, protective, and vengeful character, all of which are common Scorpio traits.

Cancer

Who could forget Kim Chi? In case you already had, she was the outrageously creative manga-inspired Korean contestant that captured our imaginations way back in season 8 with her colorful outfits.

Aside from unbridled creativity, Cancer’s are known for strutting around with puffed out chests and for having round or “moon-like” facial features.

I don’t know about you, but we reckon that fits Kim Chi to a tee.

Virgo

The unforgettable Eureka O’Hara is a helpful Virgo’s spirit animal for her larger than life persona. Before bursting on to the RuPaul catwalk, O’Hara starred as Miss Don’t H8 DIVA to promote a powerful anti-bullying message, among other charitable volunteer gigs.

What’s more, her Virgo qualities of hard work and dedication have seen her come back from injury to secure a spot in the top three of season 10.

Sagittarius

Dedicated and always inspiring, season 6 contestant Bianca Del Rio encapsulates the Archer down to a tee. Not only did this enthusiastic and encouraging starlet snag first place, but she’s got a long and prestigious list of achievements to her name as well.

The part Cuban, part Honduran phenomenon has won a Big Easy Entertainment Award, New Orleans Gay Entertainer of the Year and a Southern Decadence Co-Grand Marshal title. She’s performed in countless TV shows, films, and cabarets as well.

Total Sagittarius.

Gemini

Ginger Minj may be famous for the color of her…uhh… hair. But did you know she’s a bit of an artsy type as well?

When not competing on RuPaul’s, the brash and brazen contestant personifies the Gemini’s love for music and performance art. Ginger Minj has loads of musical numbers under her belt, not to mention TV appearances and theatrical roles.

Capricorn

Peruvian-Puerto Rican beauty queen and proud transgender woman Carmen Carrera gets our pick for the Capricorn’s spirit animal.

Porqué?

Her fierce devotion and loyalty to her transgender issues, of course.

Remember when she slammed RuPaul for the show’s use of the pejorative terms “she-male” and “tranny”? That was her Capricorn character coming out loud and proud.

Pisces

Just like any self-respecting Pisces, Puerto Rican native Nina Flowers loves nothing more than to dance. Of course, this should hardly come as a surprise seeing as she rocks the clubs and festivals of Miami as a DJ in her spare time.

Having trouble putting a name to a face? That’s probably because Flowers hasn’t been seen since the first season of the show when her romantic and helpful Pisces persona allowed her to snag second place.

Of course, you probably don’t remember back that far, do you?

Aquarius

This particular personality type is known for being original and open-minded, which sounds a heck of a lot like Trixie Mattel to us.

After comprising a creative stage name from the taunts of her homophobic papa, Trixie’s made significant progress in the world of drag. Her primary achievement was coming in first during the All-Stars season 3.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Star Denali Serves Disco in Kali Uchis “Telepatía” Video

Even though she was recently eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Denali is creating waves online with her lip sync videos. In her latest visual, the Mexican-American drag queen tackles Kali Uchis’ viral hit “Telepatía.”

The “Latina que Patina” made her mark on Drag Race.

Denali, the self-proclaimed “Latina que Patina,” was competing on season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. During her run on the show, she served plenty of moments that paid homage to her Mexican heritage, including a standout lip-sync dressed as Quetzalcoatl.

Denali, who is also of Jewish descent, finished in eighth place. We sadly missed out on a Denali and Valentina crossover moment because of that elimination. While we’re sure there will be an All-Stars placement in her future, she’s keeping her digital presence alive. On Denali’s YouTube channel, she’s done lip sync videos for Britney Spears’ “If U Seek Amy” and the Pussycat Dolls’ “When I Grow Up.”

Denali’s “Telepatía” video is everything.

Recently Denali released a video lip sync of Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía.” This is the perfect synergy of queer Latina power as Denali noted in her post. “Super thankful to Kali Uchis and her team at EMI Records for this opportunity!” she wrote. “Having had this song on repeat since it came out and it’s such an honor to promote for more queer Latinx queens.” Uchis is openly bisexual.

In the VHS-like visual, Denali is living her disco fantasy. There are moments that are reminiscent of Studio 54 and other stunning shots of the drag queen at the beach. Shanté, you stay!

Denali is not the only queer artist taking on Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía.” She retweeted the account @imirregulargirl who gives the sensual smash justice as well.

The Black and Afro-Latina Queens of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Discuss #BlackLivesMatter

The Black and Afro-Latina Queens of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Discuss #BlackLivesMatter

The drag queens on the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race discussed the #BlackLivesMatter movement in the previous episode and it was real. They talked about the ways they were active during the protests last summer and what it means to be a queer person of color in the U.S. today.

Kandy Muse gave the conversation an Afro-Latina perspective.

While the queens were putting on their makeup in the workroom, LaLa Ri from Atlanta, brought up the topic of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. New York’s “Dominican Doll” Kandy Muse was the first to speak on her involvement in the protests.

“Being an Afro-Latino from the south Bronx, when I see Black people being murdered by police, it just puts so many things into perspective,” Muse said. “Fighting for Black lives and all those things are very, very important to me.”

Symone reminded the other queens of George Floyd’s murder by the police.  

Symone, who hails from LA, reminded her season 13 sisters that the murder of George Floyd last May by the police is what sparked the protests throughout the country.

“It’s sad that he to- that that had to happen, but I’m happy that people are waking the f*ck up because it’s always been there,” Symone said.

As a Black queen, Symone spoke to the trauma that Black people were facing with video of George Floyd’s murder being replayed in the media.

“Even with [the] corona[virus] going on, I felt immediately compelled to be involved in protests here in Los Angeles because enough is enough,” Symone recalled. “Things need to change.”

Lala Ri put some light on Rayshard Brooks‘ murder by the police.

During the discussion, LaLa Ri brought up that the murder of Rayshard Brooks at a Wendys in Georgia happened very close to their home.

“It kind of just really hit me that I could easily be in that drive-thru, and there’s a situation where they can pull me over just because I look like I don’t belong in that type of car,” LaLa Ri said.

As LaLa Ri relived that realization, she got emotional talking about it on the show.

“You could just be a Black person in the world and you could just get killed for nothing,” the queen said in tears. “It’s scary that you could just be killed just because of the color of your skin.”

Olivia Lux, an Afro-Puerto Rican queen from New Jersey, also mentioned how Black trans women are being murdered at a high rate.

“Statically Black trans lives at the most at risk,” Olivia Lux said.

Tamisha Iman wrapped things up with the words of John Lewis.

Tamisha Iman, a Black queen from Georgia, evoked the words of late Georgia Congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis to wrap up the conversation.

“Get in some good trouble!” the Georgia queen said in an empowering moment.

The clip was uploaded to RuPaul’s Drag Race YouTube channel on Feb. 1 in honor of Black History Month. Be watch the full video to see more of this necessary conversation.
