Bosco is 28 years old and is from Seattle, WA. Their drag name was inspired by their late dog of the same name. Other queens in Seattle supposedly get irritated with Bosco because they don’t wear a lot of clothing.

“The motif for most of my drag is slutty, and I think that’s really important for me to represent here on this show. I don’t think there’s been enough slut representation on this show,” said Bosco. “I am here to bring sluts to [RuPaul’s] Drag Race… I’m a very brave person.”

This queen shared that they used to cross dress and dance for years prior to becoming a drag queen. Since they were already doing both things they became a queen to make money.
