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