Why Sharon Needles Is The Best “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Winner Of All Time

We are in the midst of a rousing debate about which winner of RuPaul's Drag Race is the best queen of all time.

So far, we've recounted the merits of past winners like Bebe Zahara Benet, Tyra Sanchez, and Raja. And now we have come to Season 4, and (IMHO, anyway)  the greatest winner of them all: Sharon Needles.

Did you just say "duh"? We're right there with you.

Even Gaga agrees.

Sharon's brand of comedy, camp, and goth glam not only defined her as a winner, but as the best there's ever been. Hell, even her hometown of Pittsburgh declared June 12, 2012, "Sharon Needles Day." Epic.

But so is everything this ballsy queen does. Need proof? Okay, let's deep-dive.

Tune in to an all new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race starting March 2 on Logo TV.


For starters, her hygiene is on fleek.

Yet she's not afraid to get—well, whatever this was.

She's not afraid of having a little work done, either.

And doles out practical beauty wisdom while doing so.

She's the ultimate queen of entrances.

And ermahgerd, she's like the scariest.

But she's also, like, maternal and stuff.

No, really, she gives some legit tear-inducing words of inspiration

But she also can say a ton by saying nothing at all. 

Really, though, she's at her sharpest when reading.

And decimating the competition.

Oh, and remember when she coined the term DILK?

Of course you do, riiiiiiight?

Sharon's a nasty...

Naughty...

Unapologetic bitch

and the best RuPaul’s Drag Race winner of all time!
