5 Things You Didn’t Know About Kylie Sonique Love Of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’
It is finally down to the Top Four for season six of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. After a super close competition, only four queens remain on the path for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. Here’s what you should know about finalist Kylie Sonique Love.
Kylie got her spot on All Stars after competing on the second and sixth seasons of Drag Race. As some might remember from her maxi-challenge monologue, she was thrown into the military when she was younger because she was “too feminine” and soon after found drag as a way to celebrate herself. What else is there to know about this drag queen?
1. She is the First Contestant On ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ to Come Out As A Trans Woman
During the season two reunion of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Kylie came out as transgender on live television. She talked about how she’s always been a girl trapped in a boy’s body and has been happier since taking testosterone blockers.
2. She is Miley Cyrus’s Drag Mother
The two are seen in an adorable Instagram video where Cyrus asks Kylie to be her drag mother last June. For those who don’t know, this means that Kylie will now act as a mentor to Cyrus on her drag journey.
3. Kylie Sonique Love’s Drag Mother is The Goddess Raven
This queen’s drag mother is now retired, but was known for being an Atlanta performer as well as a national pageant titleholder. This YouTube video posted by Love was published in 2009 and features The Goddess Raven performing.
4. She Got a Rhinoplasty and Breast Augmentation In 2012
Kylie shared her experiences with both surgeries on her YouTube channel. May I just add, she looks absolutely stunning in this video, even without makeup. Although the video is labeled Day 14 Post-Surgery, she had no visible bruises. But, it seems like she didn’t end up loving the results down the line.
In 2019, she shared that she actually didn’t like her breast implants. She made sure to make it clear that she didn’t like the size of her breast implants, but would not be de-transitioning because of it.
5. She Didn’t Have Cable Growing Up
In a recent Instagram post, Kylie talked about her inspiration behind her “oops I did it again fashion fail” look in RuPaul’s Drag Race. In the post, she exposed that television was not a part of her childhood.
“I was born in 1983 I didn’t watch a lot of TV and movies growing up as a kid because we didn’t have cable like that, so everything that I did see really made an impression,” she wrote.
Stay tuned for the next episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars next Thursday on Paramount+ to see how Kylie does in the remainder of the competition.
