QUEER VOICES

If you've been locked in a broom closet (or outside of the U.S.), we're here to break the news to you:

Violet Chachki took home the crown on last night's finale of "RuPaul's Drag Race" season seven.

The Dita Von Teese-esque stunner beat out fellow competitors Pearl and Ginger Minj to follow in the footsteps of season six's Bianca Del Rio and season five's Jinkx Monsoon and take the title of America's Next Drag Superstar.

This season felt, for the first time, entirely too close to call. Indeed, the crowd at last night's coronation ceremony at Stage 48 in New York City still seemed divided in who they thought would take home the crown.

Check out some photos of last night's coronation below, or the video above for Violet's season highlights.
