One of our favorite contestants on the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race (and a frontrunner for Miss Congeniality) Monét X Change broke hearts and left eyes teary with her story of growing up in the Caribbean, where LGBTQ people are not easily accepted. During the season we discovered that Monét X Change’s mom had a distant relationship with her son, not fully understanding or accepting that he did drag. But that has all changed now. In a new Facebook post Monét X Change reveals that his mom is now fully aware he does drag, and that she is super supportive of his career.

“Sooo I just got an incoming call from my mom. Apparently from the many times I tried to explain to her what Drag Race was … she never really understood through the phone,” Monét X Change says. “She doesn’t do technology, and does not have VH1 (she ONLY watches Lifetime and HGTV).”

“This PRIDE season I did a video with ‘The Root’ about being West Indian and gay, which has apparently been circling around the island of St. Lucia (where I’m from) about who I am, who are my parents, etc. (it’s a very small island lol…it’s been on the evening news),” he said.
