"Milk — she does a body good, guuurl!"

Milk Queen, or simply Milk (born Daniel Donigan on June 23, 1988), is an American drag queen, figure skater, and model.

Milk is best known for competing as a contestant on the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2014, where she finished ninth place. Though Milk didn't last as long as some of her fellow queens in the competition, she gained a sizable following for her unique brand of drag, personality, and her good looks in and out of drag. Because of this, she returned to the show for its third all-stars season in 2018.

Prior to starting drag, Milk was an athlete on the competitive figure skating circuit. In addition to doing drag, she is also a professional model, booking campaigns from designers among the likes of Marc Jacobs (whom she actually used to work for) and Madonna, mostly modeling out of drag as Dan Donigan.


Selected filmography:

Milk provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Milk is particularly noted for her good looks, as both a man and a woman.
  • Drag Queen: Primarily of the genderfuck variety, as perfectly illustrated (and exaggerated) in her All Stars 3 promo image.
  • Follow the Leader: She's one of the few Drag Race queens who can say they've inspired a runway challenge in a later season — specifically, her bearded look in the second half of the season 6 premiere, which led to the "bearded ladies" challenge in season 7.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: How she regards her return to Drag Race, considering herself as having improved her drag since being eliminated the first time. Mileage varied among the audience.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Unsurprisingly, since she moonlights as a professional model at six feet tall.
