Publisher's Summary

Alaska Thunderf--k spills the tea on her meteoric rise from timid Pennsylvania kid to drag superstar in this intimate photographic memoir that will appeal to diehard Alaska admirers and broader drag fans alike.

Before RuPaul's Drag Race became a worldwide phenomenon, Drag was mostly an underground art form, performed by the daring and the quick-witted, with maximum energy and a minimal budget. This is the story of one of the galaxy's greatest queens, Alaska Thunderf--k 5000, as she transforms from wearing dresses made of trash bags because she has to, to wearing dresses made of trash bags because she wants to. Finally coming clean on her home planet (Earth), this dishy, visual memoir tells the stories that shaped Alaska into an all star: from prom king to the House of Haunt, to the very public breakup that almost destroyed her. Intimate and alluring with exclusive photography throughout, and illustrations by the author, My Name's Yours, What's Alaska? is the ultimate backstage pass.

Unique and personal: Chronicling Alaska's journey from small-town kid to drag superstar, this memoir stands out for its emotional resonance, distinct humor, and unapologetic realness. Filled with compelling personal stories told in Alaska's unique voice, it gives fans an exclusive look at Justin Honard the person, not just Alaska Thunderf--k the drag queen.

LGBTQIA+ representation: LGBTQIA+ consumers will see their experiences and passions reflected in Alaska's authenticity and openness about her childhood struggles, and will be excited by a drag memoir that celebrates the whole story of queerness, not just the sassy, shady highlights.

Great gift for fans of RuPaul's Drag Race: Behind the scenes stories of Alaska's journey to RuPaul's Drag Race fame, alongside full-color photography of Alaska's iconic trash-glam looks throughout her career, will deliver the exclusive content fans crave.

Perfect for:

  • Diehard drag fans
  • Fans of Alaska Thunderf--k, RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Trixie Mattel, Bianca del Rio, Sharon Needles, Magnus Hastings, Cherri Baum, Veruca, and more
  • RuPaul's Drag Race enthusiasts who want to deep dive into a famous queen's rise to stardom

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

It's basically a rundown of what happened

I love Alaska so I expected there to be more of her thoughts, feelings, insights and philosophy but its more like a list of events, which is you're a fan who googled her enough you already know

Interesting

listening to this audiobook is comprable to listening to a interview for a podcast except that the person you want to listen to doesn't get interrupted with questions. I know a lot of this from following the news but it is really cool to hear it from the Star herself and in her own words and voice. if you are an Alaska fan this makes for a fun read. my main complaint is that it lasted me less than a day 😂

What a wonderful read and look back upon her life and career thus far!

I laughed; I cried; it was better than “Cats”! Wonderfully read (for filth). Anusthing is possible after listening to this honest take on her own life and career thus far. Brava!

More than a contestant

Interesting self portrait of Alaska from begining to current times. Gives a perspective you cant get from just pictures or moments on a reality tv show. Well worth the listen.

Loved this shit

Really enjoyable if you love Alaska. Talks about everything you’d want her to touch on, and it’s longer than most books from the drag race crew. Gimme a sequel!

Really fun!

This was a really fun read, I loved how it focused on her time before drag race. The exploration of her relationship with Sharon was so interesting. It all gives loads of context and has a bunch of stories I hadn’t heard!

I do wish it was even longer and explored some of the post drag race stuff in a bit more depth.

Highly recommend for Alaska fans.

Great book, wish it was longer!

I really enjoyed the book but it was too quick of a listen! I could have listened to so many more stories and would have loved every minute.

If you love anything to do with Alaska then this is a brilliant listen. Alaska was a favourite of mine from drag race and was nice to know a backstory to the brilliant performer

Hiiiiieeeee

I'm already a huge Alaska fan but somehow I love her even more now. She's already such a creative inspiration to me, but as someone with a perfectionist streak and my fair share of 'intense' relationships, this really helped me understand why I connect with her work so much. The performance is so compelling (no surprise) and there's a good balance of drag race fan service/goss to real life drama and reflection. An easy read with substance.

If you love Alaska, you’ll love this

Besides the fact I could listen to her talk all day, this is an interesting and raw account. It gives you an interesting story about the drag scene, personal growth, an insight into the world of drag race and is funny and entertaining along the way. Gorgeous x

Truly booked and blessed ✨

Super special to hear a memoir from the author themselves. An incredibly inspiring and honest perspective on gender and sexuality, relationships, the arts, and finding your place in life (no matter which direction we get thrown). Alaska’s storytelling ranges from joy, nostalgia, pride, to vulnerability, and I was absolutely captivated the whole way through. Can’t recommend this book enough!
