Jinkx, who won the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Raceshared beautiful wedding photos in an Instagram post Friday (15 January).

“On January 9th, 2021, Michael and I said our vows and become spouses by law.

“That’s right! Mama got married (cue the Gypsy soundtrack) — we had an at home wedding, witnessed by our housemates, with our officiant Deven Green, safely Skyping in, and our family and friends watching safely through Zoom.”

They described it as “the perfect day”, and thanked fellow Drag Race stars Tammie Brown and BenDeLaCreme for “the integral parts they played in the ceremony”.

Jinkx’s new spouse Michael also shared photos, and wrote: “On Saturday, I married my best friend and love of my life.

“It was, like the greatest aspects of our relationship thus far, truly unconventional. But full of bliss.

“It’s been easier to forget, this year and last, but this experience has been the ultimate reminder of how beautiful life is and how thankful I am for all of it that I’m allowed.”

Jinkx Monsoon opened up about being non-binary after winning Drag Race.

Jinkx Monsoon opened up about being non-binary back in 2014, following their crowning as winner on Drag Race.

“My gender does not fit into the box assigned to my genitalia. I lie somewhere between the lines,” they told the world.

On publicly coming out, they told PinkNews last year: “It was kind of around the time that gender non-conforming, non-binary and gender-fluid were becoming words we used, and were being popularised in such a way that I felt like, finally, I have a way to explain to people the way that I feel and have always felt.”
