'RuPaul's Drag Race' royalty Monét X Change has launched their own vegan talk show on YouTube titled 'The Plant-Based Way with Monet'


RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni and All Stars 5 winner Monét X Change has launched their own vegan talk show on YouTube!

The Plant-Based Way with Monét will see celebrity guests and drag queen icons join the non-binary drag artist to talk all things vegan.

During the introduction of the show, Monét admitted that they are not yet plant-based, but they want to be.

Furthermore, The Plant-Based Way with Monét aims to spread awareness about the plant-based diet through open conversations and good plant-based food.

Plant-based with Monét X Change

In the trailer for the latest vegan talk show, Monét is joined by a herd of vegan celebrities and drag queen stars.

Famous faces to appear on the show include American’s Next Top Model’s Isis King, drag queens Jackie Beat and Alaska Thunderf*ck, and vegan chef, Charity Morgan.

The first episode of the YouTube series kicks off with Charity Morgan who shares her secrets to a successful plant-based diet.

In the episode, Charity says: “People think because you’re using a plant-based ingredient … you’re supposed to do something different.”

Morgan continued to explain that she embraces flavours from her Puerto Rican and Creole heritage to recreate nostalgic dishes using vegetables and tofu.

The vegan chef added: “So when people say ‘I don’t like tofu, it’s bland’, I say ‘Don’t blame tofu for your lack of creativity’.”

Additionally, guests on The Plant-Based Way with Monét get to taste test some delicious vegan foods.

In the trailer, fellow Drag Race All Stars winner, Alaska, is seen tucking into a plant-based burrito before exclaiming: “It tastes like chicken. It’s one of those ones for, like, dad.”

Veganism in Drag Race

In recent years, veganism has become a popular topic amongst Drag Race contestants.

UK Drag Race icon Bimini Bon Boulash made their TV debut on the show in 2021, immediately announcing “I’m vegan!”

In addition, Bimini’s entrance outfit included a pink skirt that read ‘vegan bitch’ in diamonté gems. We are obsessed!

Boulash even recreated Pamela Anderson’s legendary ‘All animals have the same parts’ PETA campaign.

Joining Bimini to promote a plant-based lifestyle is UK Drag Race contestant Scaredy Kat, as well as US stars Courtney Act, and Honey La Bronx.

Even judge Michelle Visage is vegan. What’s not to love?
