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

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
