Born Timothy Wilcots in Compton, California, Latrice Royale is Large and in Charge, Chunky Yet Funky, Bold and Beautiful! After 20 years in the business of Female Impersonation, primarily in South Florida, Latrice’s unique talent came to the attention of the world on Season Four of RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2012. The sharing of her background in prison, difficult upbringing, and her “Get up, look sickening, and make them eat it” attitude won her the title of Miss Congeniality on that season as well as the hearts of fans all over the world. That same year she was invited back to participate as a contestant in RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and as a Professor in RuPaul’s Drag U. Since that time, she has made appearances all over the world, including a special television appearance with Jennifer Hudson on CBS’s Fashion Rocks and the inauguration of the new MAC store in Sao Paolo, Brazil with the legendary Preta Gil. Her story is further explored in the documentary Gays in Prison by director Christopher Hines, which recently aired on LOGO TV. www.LatriceRoyale.com
