Columbus’ hometown heroine in heels will be strutting her stuff on season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race!

The rumors were finally confirmed today when Nina posted this on her Instagram:

“A hometown hero if there ever was one, Nina West has blossomed from her humble beginnings to become a mini icon in the drag world thanks to her commitment to old-school camp, comedy, and charitable causes,” wrote Entertainment Weekly.
