Summary

Alaska Thunderf--k spills the tea on her meteoric rise from timid Pennsylvania kid to drag superstar in this intimate photographic memoir that will appeal to diehard Alaska admirers and broader drag fans alike.

Before RuPaul's Drag Race became a worldwide phenomenon, Drag was mostly an underground art form, performed by the daring and the quick-witted, with maximum energy and a minimal budget. This is the story of one of the galaxy's greatest queens, Alaska Thunderf--k 5000, as she transforms from wearing dresses made of trash bags because she has to, to wearing dresses made of trash bags because she wants to. Finally coming clean on her home planet (Earth), this dishy, visual memoir tells the stories that shaped Alaska into an all star: from prom king to the House of Haunt, to the very public breakup that almost destroyed her. Intimate and alluring with exclusive photography throughout, and illustrations by the author, My Name's Yours, What's Alaska? is the ultimate backstage pass.

Unique and personal: Chronicling Alaska's journey from small-town kid to drag superstar, this memoir stands out for its emotional resonance, distinct humor, and unapologetic realness. Filled with compelling personal stories told in Alaska's unique voice, it gives fans an exclusive look at Justin Honard the person, not just Alaska Thunderf--k the drag queen.

LGBTQIA+ representation: LGBTQIA+ consumers will see their experiences and passions reflected in Alaska's authenticity and openness about her childhood struggles, and will be excited by a drag memoir that celebrates the whole story of queerness, not just the sassy, shady highlights.

Great gift for fans of RuPaul's Drag Race: Behind the scenes stories of Alaska's journey to RuPaul's Drag Race fame, alongside full-color photography of Alaska's iconic trash-glam looks throughout her career, will deliver the exclusive content fans crave.

Perfect for:

  • Diehard drag fans
  • Fans of Alaska Thunderf--k, RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Trixie Mattel, Bianca del Rio, Sharon Needles, Magnus Hastings, Cherri Baum, Veruca, and more
  • RuPaul's Drag Race enthusiasts who want to deep dive into a famous queen's rise to stardom

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Really fun!

This was a really fun read, I loved how it focused on her time before drag race. The exploration of her relationship with Sharon was so interesting. It all gives loads of context and has a bunch of stories I hadn’t heard!

I do wish it was even longer and explored some of the post drag race stuff in a bit more depth.

Highly recommend for Alaska fans.

Great book, wish it was longer!

I really enjoyed the book but it was too quick of a listen! I could have listened to so many more stories and would have loved every minute.
