Last week, season 13 winner Symone announced the new set of queens vying for the title of drag’s next superstar. Like its predecessor, the new season is backed by a herstory making cast that includes the series’ first-ever cisgender straight male contestant Maddy Morphosis.

In an interview with Variety, Gottmik praised the inclusion of Maddy and related the current controversy to her own casting announcement. “When I first got announced on the show, I was flooded with people who did not think I should be on the show or I shouldn’t be doing drag,” she said. “I feel like she’s going through the exact same thing right now.” The 25-year-old made history in season 13, as the franchise’s first-ever out transgender male contestant.
