The cast for the 14th season of RuPaul's Drag Race has been announced and for the first time a cisgender, heterosexual queen will be competing.



Maddy Morphosis is from Fayetteville, Arkansas, and is a self-described cisgender, straight male who has been doing drag since 2017.



She said, "While I am straight, I don't consider myself a straight drag queen. I'm just a drag queen who happens to be straight."

Maddy stated, "I think my being on the show can tap into a lot of the guys watching at home — like, cisgender, straight guys — and really just, like, projecting to them that, like, gender is completely arbitrary. Just be yourself."
