Thorgy Thor performing during A Drag Queen Christmas (The Naughty Tour) at the ACL Live Moody Theater in Austin, Texas on December 19, 2019, with Nina West, Latrice Royale, Thorgy Thor, Lady Bunny, Manila Luzon, Shuga Cain, and Shea Coulee.
A Drag Queen Christmas, The Naughty Tour, is a magical (and hilarious) evening of holiday performances featuring contestants from the reality television show on VH1. The queens perform in their biggest holiday costumes with back-up dancers and a full stage production. Presented by Murray & Peter.

Included performances from Nina West, Latrice Royale, Thorgy Thor, Lady Bunny, Manila Luzon, Shuga Cain, and Shea Coulee.
Thorgy began dressing up as a kid, but her first performance-based drag was as Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. She then entered and won drag competitions, and later moved to New York, working nightclubs like Sugarland and FWORD. She won a Glammy Award for her work there.

While Thorgy has said she loves the show RuPaul's Drag Race, she has also said the show makes it tough for every single queen not on the show, compared to what it was like for "pre-race queens." Because it has inspired so many new and inexperienced performers, it makes the market for drag performers rather crowded. Still, Thorgy celebrates and welcomes new talent.

Thorgy hopes drag will take her "out of nightclubs, into theater." She wants to perform as Carnegie Hall, tour with a cabaret-style show, and conduct a full orchestra.

A Drag Queen Christmas continues across the United States with the last stop at the Starz Theatre in Tampa, Florida on December 29, 2019.
