Jackie Cox

Jackie Cox made history as the first queen of Iranian descent to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and became a top 4 finalist on the Emmy-winning series' 12th season (2020). She’s also the first queen in Drag Race “herstory” to wear a hijab on the runway. JackieVision shows the drag superstar take on classic and modern television, celebrating all things queer and pop culture with her signature blend of camp, musical theater, hit pop songs, and outrageous comedy. Musical numbers in JackieVision are inspired by some of Jackie’s favorite TV shows including WandaVision, Star Trek, The Nanny, Handmaid's Tale, and The Real Housewives. Don’t touch that dial because JackieVision is coming to a stage, for you!

Jackie says, “Not only was I inspired by WandaVision and its strong celebration of Feminine power to create this show, but also how so many of us spent hours and hours watching TV this past year for comfort. My season of RuPaul’s Drag Race aired in 2020 as the pandemic began, so getting to perform live in front of an audience with this solo tour is so thrilling! I wanted to poke fun at our TV binging with my signature campy drag theater lens--while honoring whatever it is that has brought us joy in these times. It should be celebrated!”

WandaVision has garnered a massive queer following, inspiring drag artists around the world. Jackie says, “WandaVision’s femme empowerment combined with witches and campy old school sitcoms? It's a queer heaven!”

Jackie has long been a feature of the theatrical cabaret scene with her hit shows "I Dream of Jackie" which she has performed coast to coast along with its sequels “Jackie's Nightmare” & “Jackie’s Winter Wish.” Prior to Drag Race, Jackie appeared on TV in ABC's What Would You Do?, in Fusion's Shade: Queens of NYC, as well as numerous appearances on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, winning the title of "Real Queen of Beverly Hills" for her impersonation of TV personality and actress, Lisa Rinna.

Jackie plays Almost Famous, Indianapolis on September 29.
JackieVision is written, directed and produced by Jackie Cox in collaboration with Hard Candy. For more updates visit

Gender-Inclusive Universities and Student Privacy

For many students, attending university is a profound, often life-changing, transition. It is often the student’s first time living on their own without parental supervision. This lifestyle is also accompanied by a period of self-discovery, of defining and redefining a sense of personal identity largely independent of the influence of family and friends from home.

For students who are members of the LGBTQ+ community, this rite of passage can also be a deeply empowering one. Indeed, attending university may be the student’s first real opportunity to explore their gender identity in a safe, comfortable, and accepting college.

I had the opportunity to visit Mexico for an event José Cuervo was putting on, the unveiling of their premium tequila brand, Reserva de la Familia. The trip was all about tequila, how to drink it properly, how to pair it with food, and of course, visiting various points of interest in Guadalajara while tasting tequila along the way.
