Trixie Mattel, the half-Ojibwa drag queen, folk musician, comedian and TV personality—best known for snatching the crown in season three of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars—provides an all-access pass to her one-woman show tour. While Trixie may radiate near-delusional confidence, the man beneath the makeup, Brian Firkus, does not, and that tension is what makes this character profile so revealing and unguarded. With insights into Trixie’s performances and Brian’s personal life, this peek behind the curtain explores the darkness that underpins comedy, the stress of the spotlight, the monotony of the road and the pressures of performing solo. As Trixie watches herself on All Stars not knowing whether she’s won (spoiler alert: they film alternate endings!), discusses overnight success on Skype with fellow queen Jinkx Monsoon, and tapes The Trixie and Katya Show with BFF Katya Zamolodchikova, we grasp how fleeting friendship and fame can be.
