RuPaul’s Drag Race star Morgan McMichaels in Cape Town and Joburg

Morgan McMichaels is the next RuPaul’s Drag Race alumnus set to perform live in South Africa, bringing her sass to Jozi and Cape Town this month.

Morgan will appear at Babylon – The Joburg Bar on 22 February as well as at Zer021 Social Club in Cape Town on 26 February.

Following Dusty Ray Bottoms last month, the artist is the second in a monthly lineup of RuPaul’s Drag Race stars who are expected take to the stage at the venues over the course of the year.

Morgan will be performing four songs and will be joined by a selection of our very own local drag queens, so you’re in for a fierce night.

Morgan McMichaels is the female stage persona of Scottish-American drag performer Thomas White, who competed in the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, as well as the third season of the show’s All-Stars. Morgan is known for her sass, competitive nature, talent and authenticity.

White was born in Alexandria, Scotland, to a Scottish father and an American mother, and spent parts of his childhood in both Scotland and the United States. He moved permanently from Scotland to Los Angeles when he was 18, and started doing drag in 2001. McMichaels’ drag mother is Chad Michaels, who appeared on the fourth season of Drag Race and later won the first All-Stars season.

Morgan is a consummate performer who knows how to work a crowd and is a favorite in the Southern California drag scene. She is best known for her chameleon like ability to become anyone she seeks to emulate and is renowned for her portrayals of Pink, Joan Collins, Boy George, and David Bowie.
