About All About Yvie: Into The Oddity:

This book is an intimate and in-depth look into the life of Yvie Oddly, winner of season eleven of RuPaul's Drag Race. It begins with their childhood and then tells of their coming out and coming to terms with their sexuality, gender and how those things impact their journey as an artist. It then follows them through their experience on Drag Race (season 11 and All Stars, All Winners), and their rise to super stardom. It’s a close glimpse into their wonderful and sometimes turbulent relationships with their friends, family, and all the people they met along their journey. And it’s an exploration of Yvie’s unique expression of drag as an art form.

 Yvie Oddly’s memoir will inspire readers as Yvie candidly shares their evolution into their current identity and learning to balance their private and public personas. Readers will follow them on a journey they will sympathize with, and many may even see themselves in their struggles.

About Yvie Oddly:

Yvie Oddly is a revolutionary drag queen performer, rapper, and fine artist from Denver, Colorado. They captured the attention of the world when they won season 11 of RuPaul's Drag Race. In their forthcoming book All About Yvie: Into The Oddity, the reader gets an in-depth glimpse into their childhood, their coming out and coming to terms with their sexuality and gender, and, of course, spills some Drag Race tea.  

New York Magazine named Oddly one of the most powerful drag queens in June 2019 because of their ability to push the boundaries of drag performance art. Following their win on Drag Race, Yvie competed on the seventh season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, an all-winners season, did a residency in Vegas and continues to perform across the country. Yvie released their debut album, Drag Trap, in 2020. 

In addition to music videos and performances, Yvie explores what they see as a transformative power of drag by making thrift store finds into wearable art. Yvie currently resides in Brooklyn, New York with their husband, Doug Illsley.
