Trixie Mattel

An American drag queen, actor, and singer who broke big as a contestant on the seventh season of <I>RuPaul's Drag Race, Trixie Mattel (born Brian Michael Firkus), is also known for her popular web series <I>UNHhhh with fellow RuPaul alum Katya Zamolodchikova. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Firkus began doing drag at the age of 19 and made her first public appearance in a stage performance of the <I>Rocky Horror Picture Show. After placing sixth on the 2015 season of <I>RuPaul's Drag Race, she moved to Los Angeles and began working on her web series, performing standup comedy, and acting (Mattel appeared as herself on an episode of <I>American Horror Story: Roanoke). In 2017, Mattel released the EP Two Birds, a well-received country-pop album that made a splash both at home and abroad. A follow-up EP, One Stone, appeared in March 2018, immediately following the third season finale of <I>RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars, in which Mattel was a contestant. Both EPs were then combined into the Two Birds, One Stone collection. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
