Kylie Sonique Love is the second trans winner in the Drag Race franchise. Angele Anang, who is trans, won season 2 of Drag Race Thailand (2019).
Also, quite a few winners are nonbinary even though it wasn’t mentioned in their story arcs – Jinkx Monsoon, Violet Chachki, Bob the Drag Queen, Alaska, Sasha Velour, Monet X Change, and Shea Coulée. (Apologies if I’m missing someone).
