Every Winner of 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' Ranked in Popularity From Lowest to Highest

RuPaul’s Drag Race is a superstar making machine.

The long-running RuPaul-hosted drag competition series has exploded in popularity over the past decade, with dozens of spinoffs and international franchises, as well as All Star editions, including the most recent “All Winners” season.

Thanks to the platform of the show, many of the queens featured have been able to turn their art into massively successful brands, and they’ve also amassed huge followings on social media. Instagram, especially, has proven to be a huge platform for the Drag Race queens to showcase their makeup skills, performances and comedy routines.

We’ve rounded up all of the winners of every U.S. season of RuPaul’s Drag Race (except Tyra Sanchez, who retired from drag in 2020), as well as all of the winners of the U.S. seasons of All Stars, and ranked them according to their popularity on Instagram.

Every Star Who Came Out as LGBTQ+ in 2022

Visibility is essential.

Over the past few months, several high-profile stars have opened up about their sexuality and gender identity, revealing that they are all part of the LGBTQ+ community.

At a time when LGBTQ+ rights have especially come under fire in the United States, including proposed anti-trans legislation in several states, as well as the “Don’t Say Gay or Trans” bill in Florida, these celebrities are all helping push back against ignorance, prejudice and intolerance in the fight for equality for every citizen.

For more ways to help support the LGBTQ+ equal rights movement, check out organizations like HRC, GLAAD and The Trevor Project.

Kesha continued, “Look around. These are our brothers and our f—ing sisters. We need each other. We are not alone in this, and we need you now more than ever. We all need to stick together, and we really need to remember that this s— was punk,” the Grammy-nominated musician added. “This was not easy. This is not going to be easy, and we are not done fighting. But today we’re here to celebrate who the f— we are. We are who we are!”
