But Velour’s look is not the only thing that’s been talked about since the finale. In a behind the scenes video with Velour working with photographer, there is a shot of the Season 9 winner drinking an iced coffee and side-eyeing the camera.
This moment became an instant meme on Twitter, because what queer person doesn’t identify with the visual of a drag performer sipping iced coffee through a straw while dressed like a glamour alien?
