WATCH: RuPaul's Drag Race queens appear in an anti-smoking ad

RuPaul’s Drag Race alums Manila Luzon, Tammie Brown, Shangela, and Trixie Mattel appeared in a PSA against the harmful effects of smoking cigarettes.

The video, part of the This Free Life campaign, highlights the unattractive side effects of smoking, including yellow nails, smelly hair, wrinkled skin, and dental problems.

These queens join Alyssa Edwards in being outspoken against smoking.

This Free Life campaign also has a section of their site called Lessons in Flawless where other RPDR queens, including Bob The Drag Queen and BenDeLaCreme, give fashion and beauty tips.

In Course 1: Beautiology, Alyssa Edwards teaches viewers about facial expressions and everyday pageantry. In Course 2: Advanced Humble-Braggery, Bob The Drag Queen gives tips on crafting one’s character and walking into a room purse-first. And in Course 3: Home Ec, BenDeLaCreme teaches us how to bake a shade cake and spill tea properly.

This Free Life is also doing an LGBTQ&A, interviewing prominent LGBTI YouTubers about how smoking directly affects the LGBTI community.

Watch the drag queen-loaded PSA below and check out This Free Life for more drag queen goodness and information on how to quit tobacco use.
