Meet Drag Race México’s cast of 11 sickening queens joining host Valentina
Drag Race México has unveiled the cast of queens set to compete on its first ever season – and they’re all sickening.
As the latest country to fall in RuPaul’s quest for world domination, the official cast list of Drag Race México has finally been RuVealed.
To make matters even more legendary, the series will be co-hosted by Drag Race fan favourite alum Valentina and Drag Race France season one star Lolita Banana.
11 hungry queens from across the country will vie for the title of México’s First Drag Superstar – and if the newly-released Meet the Queens video is anything to go by, the competition is set to be fierce.
Valentina, take that thing off of your face, and show us the cast of Drag Race México…
Hailing from Ciudad Juárez, Argennis, 26, is already the winner of Mexican drag pageant ‘Iconica Reina Del Show/ Iconic Show Queen’– a title that will surely help her as she enters the workroom.
“My drag persona is a diva. She is a snooty b*tch. People tell me I am a bitch, and they’re right – but I am not going to change, so suck it.”
Official Bio: Best known as the chameleonic queen and named the best drag queen of Ciudad Juarez, Argennis has a career spanning 10 years and has been loved and cheered on by her fellow hometown citizens.

Cristian Peralta, 36, joins the Drag Race México cast from Guadalajara, and her Instagram displays fierce celebrity impersonations of Mariah Carey and the Sanderson sisters. If DRM has a Snatch Game, the other queens should watch out.
“I’m extremely competitive. Brace yourself, my dears, the queen of queens is here.”
Official Bio: From Jalisco to the world. Originally from San Pedro, Tlaquepaque, Cristian Peralta has 15 years of experience in the entertainment world, with three years in the world of drag showcasing her talent as a comedian, dancer, makeup artist, and impersonator, touring the country.

Also from Guadalajara, Gala Varo, 33, is one half of the drag pair ‘Red Rabbit Duo’, who appeared on season two of YouTube show La Más Draga.
“When people first meet me, they freeze in place. They’re shocked; they can’t believe such beauty exists.”

Lady Kero, 33, is the season’s only queen from Oaxaca City. Her social media brands her the ‘Oaxacan Dragon’ – and we’re ready to see some fire-breathing when it comes to the rest of the Drag Race México cast.
“My drag persona is a kindhearted auntie who gives you hugs, lends you an ear, gives you advice and a good scolding at times.”
Official Bio: Lady Kero has a vibrant spirit and a soul of steel. Born and raised in Oaxaca, Kero claims that the history, culture, and traditions of her hometown inspired her to create her drag character. She has “mezcal in her blood, pithaya lips, and a heart of cheese” — a true delicacy for Mexico and the world.

Margaret Y Ya
Mexico City’s first tribute to the Drag Race México cast is Margaret Y Ya, 28, who competed on the first season of La Más Draga and already boasts well over 100,000 Instagram followers.
“I have a carefree personality, I give zero fucks. The biggest misconception people have about me is that I’m a shitty person, and maybe I am, but only to other shitty people who deserve it.”

At 24, Matraka, is one of the youngest queens on the Drag Race México cast, and hails from Purísima

The most experienced queen (read: oldest) of the Drag Race México cast, 41-year-old Regina Voce first appeared on the first season of Queens of the Universe. After placing 7th/8th, it remains to be seen whether the third Mexico City queen can top that placement in a Drag Race arena.
“I have a very seductive energy. That’s what has got me – and will continue to get me – very far.”

The final queen announced for Drag Race México‘s inaugural season, Vermelha Noir, 24, is part of the same drag house as Pixie Pixie – do we smell a rivalry or an alliance?
