AJA (before a performance in February 2018)


American drag performer, reality television personality, and rapper best known for competing on season 9 (2017) of RuPaul's Drag Race and season 3 (2018) of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars.

Rivera began doing drag in Manhattan at age 16, participating in contests at Posh Bar, the Stonewall Inn, Metropolitan Bar and Sugarland. Aja competed on the ninth season of RuPaul's Drag Race alongside 13 other contestants. Aja placed ninth overall, later returning for the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars on 20 October 2017. Aja was eliminated during the fifth episode, but returned in the following episode with the other eliminated queens for a chance to win re-entry into the competition. Morgan McMichaels rejoined the competition, which placed Aja seventh overall. In March 2018, Aja hosted a live streamed Drag Race trivia contest with the cast of season 10.

The drag house Haus of Aja, based in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, includes members Aja, Kandy Muse, Momo Shade, Dahlia Sin, and Janelle No5.

Rivera identifies as a person of color and uses singular they pronouns when not in drag.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes Aja on Twitter: "On January 4th 1994 my dumb ass was born. My bio dad had been murdered via gang activity before I was born and my mother was only 16. He was African American and she was mixed" [1], "God its my birthday yall. 24 years old never seemed more anti climatic lol" (posted 4 January 2018) [2], "I’m an Aries rising too" [3], "I am a Capricorn ♑️ with an Aries ♈️ rising and a Libra ♎️ moon" [4], "I have a bad attitude get over it - I’m born and raised in bedstuy" [5]. A speculative time of 11:30 AM in New York City gives Aries rising. On 29 Aug 2019 AJA tweeted their table of planets from Co-Star with the comment, "Just found out in a double Capricorn and not an Aries rising" [6]; the table lists ASC, Neptune, Uranus in Capricorn in 1st house, Saturn in 2nd, Libra Moon in 9th, Jupiter and Pluto in Scorpio in 10th and other planets in 12th. This corresponds with a birth time of around 7:30 AM.
