“RuPaul’s Drag Race” season five winner Jinkx Monsoon opened up about their gender identity on Twitter this week.

Monsoon explained that they identify as non-binary/non-gender and prefer “They/Them” pronouns. The drag star revealed they have identified “under the trans umbrella” since their teens. Monsoon says they came out as non-binary four years ago in an effort to educate others on the transgender community.

While “They/Them” are Monsoon’s preferred pronouns, while in drag Monsoon prefers “She/Her.”

Monsoon will appear in the upcoming season of “Steven Universe” as the voice of a new gem, Emerald.
