Drag Race Holland crowns winner

Rachel Badham November 9, 2020

Drag Race Holland’s first season has crowned Envy Peru as its winner after four queens competed in the finals. South American drag queen Envy Peru was up against Ma’Ma Queen, Miss Abby OMG, Janey Jacke in a show which saw the contestants perform a medley of RuPaul songs and present their ‘best drag’, where Envy donned a Dita Von Teese inspired look.

Envy’s win means she is the first Latina queen to win Drag Race. After her victory, she told Entertainment Weekly: “I’m proud to be a face, example, and role model for the Latin community. They’re lacking acceptance. There’s a lot of machismo there, so I just want to show the kids who are queer that you can achieve your dreams, even though you’re Latin and queer.”

She continued: “I want to be an example for them and, hopefully, with this crown, I can make a difference so that mothers who have queer kids can be more accepting and see queerness as a blessing instead of a flaw.” 2020 also saw the franchise’s first Indian winner after Priyanka won Drag Race Canada season 1 in September. In addition, the show took home six Emmys at the annual TV awards, including the honour of Outstanding Competition Program.

Drag Race Holland has not yet announced a second series, but Drag Race UK season 2 is set to air in 2021.
