Irene Dubois On RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15
RuPaul’s Drag Race returned for season 15 and on a new network MTV. This season fans of the award-winning show will be meeting 16 queens. In addition, the program is offering the winner its largest prize ever: $200,000. And if that weren’t enough, RuPaul’s Drag Race will air its historic 200th episode in the following season.
January 6 sees the premiere of a two-part series. The official Emmy-winning show, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked, will debut right after on MTV. With the exception of the twins, the season 15 cast consists of a diverse group of queens.
Irene Dubois is the drag sister of Season 14 finalist Bosco. Other interesting cast members this season are Kerri Colby’s legendary drag mother, Sasha Colby, and twin TikTok stars Sugar and Spice, and the first queen from Miami Malaysia Babydoll Foxx.
Irene’s official bio reads: “Attention, Earthlings: The Alien Queen has landed! Outspoken and out of this world, Irene combines Texan glam with Seattle wit and grit! Plus, she’s Bosco’s drag sister, so expect eclectic, extravagant drag, with a touch of high drama!”
Irene shared with SeattleMet that her Brit grandmother and Star Wars are two inspirations for her creativity. She added, “Sometimes I like to dress up like a very refined older woman. And then sometimes I like to dress up like an alien.” She believes, “Drag is a cathartic release of joy. I think people like to watch other people have uninhibited fun.”
Other cast members joining Irene Dubois this season are Amethyst, Aura Mayari, Malaysia Babydoll Foxx, Sugar, Spice, Princess Poppy, Jax, Anetra, Robin Fierce, Marcia Marcia Marcia, Salina EsTitties, Loosey LaDuca, Mistress Isabelle Brooks, Sasha Colby, and Luxx Noir London.

Irene Dubois Job
Since Irene Dubois earned her degree in 2015 from Southern Methodist University (per her LinkedIn), she has been a drag performer. She earned her degree in BFA in Theatre Studies. Her training is in theatre studies, with a focus on playwriting and directing.
Irene was 17 years old when she first saw RuPaul’s Drag Race. She was instantly hooked. “Everything from that point on was in service of having a career as a drag queen.”
After ten years, a theater BFA, and a relocation to Seattle, Hill’s drag persona Irene has established herself as one of the most well-known performers in the area. She alternates hosting the family-friendly brunch show at Julia’s on Capitol Hill with more avant-garde appearances at R Place and Neighbours. Irene, who still refers to herself as a “strange kid,” tries out sci-fi and fantasy variations on traditional glam. The nonbinary, gender-fluid Seattleite has borne the loss of live concerts since stages went dark in the spring with a philosophical viewpoint and tons of Sour Patch Kids.
“Putting on drag is like a Tibetan mandala,” reasons Irene. “You put in tons of work, tons of experience is behind it. And then at the end, you just wipe it all off. It’s very meditative.”
Irene incorporates this into her performance approach by frequently coming up with performances that use music, news media, and spectacle to tell a message. She performs every Friday and Saturday at her home bar R Place for their “Lashes” event, hosts brunch every Saturday and Sunday at Julia’s on Broadway and presents Seattle’s top 18+ night every Thursday at Neighbours Nightclub.
