Drag Race's Trinity The Tuck has come out as trans non-binary.
The season 9 runner up and All Stars 4 co-winner, who uses she/they pronouns, shared her story in an Instagram post on Thursday (31 March), which marked International Transgender Day of Visibility.
They said they had started to question how they identified with their gender after starting drag.
"Life’s a journey!"
"That's why I altered my body starting at the age of 21 to look more feminine and also started hormone therapy for a short period," the queen explains in a post captioned: "It’s not always easy but love yourself! Life’s a journey! ❤️🏳️⚧️"
She continues: "I stopped because I personally don't know that I would be comfortable living as female with the way id physically look. Everyone has their own journey I suppose.

"I've spoke [sic] with many of my friends who are trans to get their thoughts and insight over the years. I still don't know where my journey will take me but I am trans-NB. I wanted to share my feelings in hopes that others who felt like me would know they aren't alone.
"Sending out love! I hope it finds you," they add.
The queen was met with a wave of love nd support in response to her post.
Michelle Visage kept it simple with "😍 🏳️⚧️" while Trinity's fellow season 9 sister, Peppermint, who is trans, comments: "I'm thinking about you so much Miss Thing this is so beautiful sending you all the love! You are right where you need to be you are not a minute too soon or too late! Happy transgender day of visibility!"
The queen is the latest Drag Race contestant to come out as trans. Season 14's Willow Pill and Jasmin Kennedie both came out as such on the show, while Gigi Goode came out as trans non-binary last August.
Attitude's new-look March/April issue is out now.
