Nymphia Wind, the winner of Season 16 of "RuPaul’s Drag Race," made history on Wednesday as the first drag queen to perform at the Presidential Office. Wearing her signature yellow, Nymphia staged a lip sync extravaganza with the members of her drag house. She thanked President Tsai for her contributions over the past eight years, calling Tsai a mother figure for Taiwan.

Nymphia Wind entertains the audience, flipping and splitting in high heels.

By incorporating Taiwanese elements into the outfits she designed herself, Nymphia impressed the judges and fans of the show from all over the world. Her performances always contain an element of defiance, of resistance against discrimination in society. I would like to thank all drag queens for showing off your beauty fearlessly, for standing up and breaking the mold.

I think this might be the first time in the world that a drag queen has performed at a presidential reception. I would like to thank this country for all it has given me, for letting me grow into the person I am today.

Nymphia fought back tears as she thanked Taiwan for enabling her growth. She pointed out that the yellow lotus on her chest symbolized triumph despite adversity.

Nymphia Wind
Drag queen
We in Taiwan face many political challenges, and there are many situations in which we have to find our way through difficulties. With you on our side, we have been able to share our beauty and grow into our beautiful selves. So I would like to thank you for your contributions over the past eight years. You are a mother for us in Taiwan.

When competing in “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Nymphia drew inspiration from Taiwanese culture, showcasing looks featuring bananas and bubble tea. Her next major stop is Paris, where she will perform at the Taiwan Pavilion in the 2024 Cultural Olympiad.
