Columbus’ very own Queen of Drag, Nina West, is set to bring her signature blend of charm and charisma back to the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” runway, as she competes in the highly anticipated ninth season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.” Streaming on Paramount+ starting May 17, this season is breaking new ground, with contestants vying for a charitable cause.

Each contestant this season will be competing for a supersized donation of $200,000, provided by The Palette Fund, to a charity of their choice. Nina West, known for her philanthropic spirit and engaging performances, has selected The Trevor Project, a leading organization focused on suicide prevention and crisis intervention for LGBTQ+ youth.

West, a beloved Columbus local and a proud advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, has not only made a name for herself through her participation in Season 11 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” where she was crowned Miss Congeniality, but also through her extensive work in promoting kindness and acceptance.
