Lashauwn Beyond is the stage name of Lashauwn Jackson, an American drag performer and seamstress from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She is best known for being a contestant on Season 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race. She is also known for repurposing Jade Cole's infamous argument, "This is not America's Next Top BEST FRIEND."" with the line 'This is not RuPaul's Best Friends Race' and 'Post Apopalopic'. She was the second contestant to be sent home.
RuPaul's Drag Race
On the first episode, Lashauwn was praised for her runway look. On the first episode of Untucked during an argument with fellow contestant Jiggly Caliente, Lashauwn said "I’m not here to make best buddies, bitch!" and argued, "This is not RuPaul's Best Friend Race!", a reference to the infamous quote by Jade Cole of Cycle 6 of Americas Next Top Model, "This is not America's Next Top BEST FRIEND." Lashauwn was the second contestant to be eliminated on season 4, placing her in 12th place.
Lashauwn is her younger sister’s middle name. Beyond means to always go the extra mile and strive for perfection. She also describes her drag itself as being big, beyond, and larger than life.
