Spoilers for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11:

Nina West is releasing the album following her exit from season 11.

Fittingly, it will also be released on 17 May – the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.

On her website, it says: ‘Nina West is bringing the art of drag to a new audience — kids!

‘This one-of-kind queen brings you a one-of-a-kind collection of songs about love, acceptance, and the art of drag.

‘Get Nina’s Drag is Magic EP, featuring the delightful single of the same name today. Order now!’

Many fans have said the album is a perfect way to introduce drag, and the LGBTI community, to kids.

‘This is how we include children in the LGBTI community in an age appropriate way, as well as drag queen book readings and youth-specific events,’ one said on Reddit.

‘Props to Nina for being a great role model for youth.’

Nina West ‘leaving on such a high note’ 

Nina has also paid tribute to her journey on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

She said on Instagram: ‘What a wonderful, wild, and truly ELEVENGENDARY journey this has been.

‘After nine auditions and nearly a decade of my life working toward this goal and dream, I finally made it to the runway of RuPaul’s Drag Race – I made new friends, I conquered some fears, I made funny faces, and even I made Ru laugh.

‘I may not get the chance to lip sync for the crown, but in so may ways, I am already the winner.

‘I am leaving on such a high note.

‘From insane fan art to incredibly powerful emails and letters of your stories, struggles, and triumphs, thank you.

‘To my season 11 CYSTERS – thank you for being the best competitors and now friends anyone could ask for.

‘To the final 5, you are really everything.’

She also said: ‘While this chapter of the journey ends, the next book is about to open and I cannot wait to show you what else I have in store.

‘Keep dreaming with me. It will be elevengendary.’
