Season 10 contestant on Rupaul’s Drag Race! DragQueen, Dancer, Rapper, Activist!
The Vixen is known for blending political activism and queer advocacy into her drag performances. She has been an outspoken critic about anti-black sentiment in America, including in white queer communities, stating, “you [often] have to choose between calling out racism or homophobia”.
In November 2016, Taylor co-founded “Black Girl Magic”, a drag show consisting of only African-American queens. Drag Race alumni Dida Ritz and Shea Couleé are part of this show. Her fellow season ten contestants Asia O’Hara, Monét X Change, and Monique Heart were added to the line-up of the “Black Girl Magic” cast in June 2018.
The Vixen was announced as one of fourteen contestants for season ten of RuPaul’s Drag Race on February 22, 2018. She won the episode two main challenges. Outside of Drag Race, The Vixen had a booth covered with the Black Girl Magic logo for the first annual Wakandacon in August 2018. She became a sponsor for Grindr’s “Kindr” public service announcement in September 2018, in an effort to stop racial discrimination in the app.
On March 5th and 6th, Vixen performed alongside fellow drag race alum Bebe Zahara Benet, Bob The Drag Queen, Monique Heart, Peppermint, and Shea Couleé in Nubia tour, a live drag show featuring and produced by Black Drag Queens.
