American drag performer, singer and actor who won the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race on 10 May 2013, winning the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar".

Hoffer/Monsoon identifies as "genderless" and prefers the pronouns 'they' and 'their' instead of 'he/she' and 'her/his.' Their drag persona is inspired by their mother and the comedians Lucille Ball, Maria Bamford, Deven Green, and Sarah Silverman. Their drag persona's last name, Monsoon, is derived from the character Edina Monsoon from the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous.

Hoffer also performed as Jinkx Monsoon in the original one act cabaret musical The Vaudevillians under the name "Kitty Witless." Hoffer is accompanied by musical partner and co-creator Richard Andriessen, who performs under the name "Dr. Dan Von Dandy." The Vaudevillians performed at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City from July to November 2013. After touring Australia with The Vaudevillians, Hoffer received a nomination for the Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer.

In 2015 Hoffer joined the cast of Wes Hurley's hit Web comedy series Capitol Hill.

As a singer, Monsoon has released two albums and several singles.
