“I can’t really think of a better time to tell y’all so here it goes: I’m straight too.”

Bosco was riffing on a sketch from her season of Drag Race, which is currently airing. Season 14 features the first straight man ever cast on the popular drag reality TV show: Maddie Morphosis.

In a sketch, Maddie humorously discussed coming out as straight to her parents, and another drag queen joked that she was straight too. Here, Bosco is coming out as a straight woman.

In subsequent tweets, they explained that they use she/they pronouns and that they started hormone replacement therapy after filming the season of Drag Race.

“This is something that’s been on my mind for over a decade now,” she wrote. “I’ve spent my adult life working in the food industry and have never felt financially secure enough to start this process.”

“Honestly, I was also just flat out terrified of how I’d be treated. I still am.”

Despite being worried about how others will react, Bosco said that she’s “the happiest I’ve ever been” now that she’s living her truth.

Many contestants on Drag Race have come out as transgender after their seasons, like Carmen Carrera from season 3, Jiggly Caliente from season 4, and Gia Gunn and Laganja Estranja from season 6.

Kerri Colby and Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté are also out and proud transgender competitors on season 14.
