PLASTIQUE TIARA SIGNS WITH UTA (EXCLUSIVE)

Drag superstar Plastique Tiara has signed with UTA for representation in all areas. The agency will help secure new opportunities across television, digital, music and more.

The signing comes as Plastique stars on the ninth season of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" on MTV. For the first time in the show's history, contestants are competing for a charity of their choice. Plastique, who actively supports Asian and Vietnamese charities with visits and donations to local Vietnamese orphanages, is raising money for the Asian American Foundation.

After this season wraps, Plastique will embark on a 31-date-tour alongside her "AS9" co-starring queens, kicking off in Seattle on Aug. 8, with additional headline dates in the U.S., Europe, Asia and South America later this year. 

Hailing from Ho Chi Minh City, Plastique has been dubbed "The Pride of Vietnam," frequently incorporating her Vietnamese-American heritage in her art. She first appeared on the eleventh season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" in 2019, making an impact with her larger-than-life glam looks and ability to blend anime and Vietnamese pop culture into her work.

Plastique's TikTok presence soared with her viral "Wipe it Down" challenge in 2020, which amassed 90 million views. With over 15 million followers across all social media platforms, she is the most-followed queen in "Drag Race" history.

Plastique's prominence on social media has led to partnerships with notable brands including Laneige, Neutrogena, Hulu, Amazon Prime, L'Oreal, Disney+, YouTube, HBO Max, Viktor & Rolf, Mac Cosmetics and Spotify. 

Plastique will continue to be represented by Jamie Veal at Persona PR.
