Drag Queen Jax is “unapologetically a queer person of color navigating the scene confidently.” She’s bold, confident, and hilarious, — but most of all, she’s now on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15!
This Drag Queen Jax Bio explores her life.
Drag Queen Jax On RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15
It’s time for another season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but this time the stakes are higher. High stakes, mean more drama, and more drama means Jax isn’t going to have an easy time.
But then again, Jax isn’t here to make friends. She is in it to win it. Furthermore, it was RuPaul’s Drag Race that first introduced the art of drag to her. So, she’s here to prove herself and how far she’s come. “I started watching Drag Race the week my grandmother passed away. It just sparked something in me creatively,” she said.
Super excited to share her journey, Jax took to her IG to write, “Make room for the JAX-flips. Get in b*tches, we’re going to #DragRace Season 15 premieres FRIDAY JAN 6 at 8/7c on @mtv !”
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 is set to hit the screen on January 6, 2023, with the biggest grand prize in franchise history i.e. of $200 thousand. But that’s not the only change hitting the competition this season. The show’s now moving to MTV, making it the Emmy-winning show’s third home.

Drag Queen Jax Job
Drag Queen Jax is a full-time queen and a part-time photographer. Infact, she has a BFA in photography and videography from the School of Visual Arts. Find her photography works on FB @jacksonmcgphoto and her website “jacksonmcgoldrick.com.”
Back in November 2013, she even participated in an exhibit at the Gratia Gillespie Art Gallery at Atria Darien, 50 Ledge Road.
Now coming to her time as a drag queen, Jax first began drag as a way to create a satirical commentary of her upbringing in suburban Connecticut. She used to formulate photographs around conversations she overheard in her town and create amplified personifications to place in front of the camera.
The first time she ever performed as “Jax” was at an open stage set for a local Queen’s final show at Icon in New York City. That night, she performed “My way” a song by Noah Cyrus, and the feedback was phenomenal! “The People refused to believe it was my first time performing in drag, my background as a cheerleader simply went into overdrive the second the music started,” she recalled.
However, her aesthetic has evolved over the years. “I quickly learned that drag in its nature is already so political, and that I don’t have to hit people over the head with it,” she explained. Now, she stylizes her drag around the things she loves and who “Jackson” is — an athlete, of mixed-race from the Caribbean, a suburbs child — “I found a way to mash this all together and that is who/what JAX is,” she added.
For Jax, the art of drag is just like any other sport. Infact, her competitive athlete background has instilled in her a work ethic she wishes to bring to her Drag.
So, what sets Jax apart from others? Well, it’s her originality. Jax’s mic work is 100% improvised. She doesn’t like to perform scripted shows.
Overall, drag has helped Jax learn to celebrate the things she used to think could be her detriment growing up. So, she wants to keep inspiring others to share their stories as well and be themselves every chance they get, “You never know who can relate and who needs to hear it. By sharing you can help someone feel less alone,” she added.
