RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 has come to a close, and after an intense competition, the Los Angeles-based, Hawaiian-born queen Sasha Colby has been crowned the winner. The victory marks the second consecutive time a trans contestant has won a regular season of Drag Race’s American edition.
Last year, Willow Pill became the first trans winner, while Sasha’s former roommate and close friend, Kylie Sonique Love, won an overall iteration of Drag Race in the United States when she won the All Stars 6 crown. Let’s find out Who Won Rupaul Season 15.
Who Won Rupaul Season 15?
Shasha won RuPaul’s drag race in season 15. Mama Ru announced the season 15 winner at the end of an epic grand finale, which saw Luxx Noir London, Mistress Isabelle Brooks, Anetra, and Sasha fronting solo musical numbers set to original tunes, before Ru whittled the finalists down to a final two, Sasha and Anetra, for a lip-sync smackdown.
The duel marked a rematch from the pair’s LaLaPaRuza battle in February, which saw Sasha win over Anetra, who helped make the face-off one of the most memorable lip-syncs of the season.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 The Crowning Moment
Sasha Colby was presented her official crown at a live finale viewing party in New York on Friday night, joined by Willow and her fellow top-four sisters, Anetra, Mistress, and Luxx. After accepting the title from RuPaul, Sasha dedicated the win to every trans person, past, present, and future. “This goes to every trans person, past, present, and future because we are not going anywhere,” she said.
Sasha’s Future Aspirations
During the finale, RuPaul asked Sasha what she dreams of doing next. She replied, “I love a good manifestation moment, so I’m seeing my TV show, I’m seeing acting, I’m seeing music, all thanks to this show and you.” Sasha’s win gives her a platform to achieve her dreams and inspire others who look like her.

The Future Of Drag Race
Although season 15 has ended, there is still plenty more Drag Race. The previously announced All Stars 8 is set to premiere on May 12 on Paramount+. Several international spin-offs are in the works, including a Global All-Stars competition and region-specific iterations in Brazil, Germany, and Mexico.
Conclusion: Sasha Colby’s victory in season 15 of RuPaul’s Drag Race marks another milestone for trans representation in mainstream media. Drag Race has been a platform for queer performers to showcase their talents and push for greater acceptance and visibility. Sasha’s win, along with the success of previous trans contestants, will hopefully inspire more trans individuals to pursue their dreams in the entertainment industry.
