Milk is the stage name of Daniel Donigan, an American figure skater and drag performer. He is best known for being a contestant on Season 6 and All Stars 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race.


Milk's biography via her website reads:

"MILK is the creation of Sandra Sassypants aka Daniel Donigan. This is the story of his/her life.

Dan grew up in Syracuse, NY. Holla, 315! He has a mommy and a daddy... and two really hot brothers. They like pussy. Sorry, gays.

Dan went to Catholic school and was an altar boy. He was never touched by an angel, thankfully.

He was a competitive figure skater, for like, ever.

Dan joined the Marc Jacobs International family in 2009. He loves clothes, like any teenage girl. Duh. He was the Merchandising Manager at Marc Jacobs in NYC. MILK can be seen tackling models at every "Marc" runway show.

Dan breast-formed a drag group called "The Dairy Queens" which is cream-based on the East Coast. The members are MILK, Skim Burley (MILK's Drag Daughter), Yoohoo, Linda Lakes, & Juggz.

MILK owes much of her success to New York Nightlife Mogul Susanne Bartsch. Susanne discovered MILK & The Dairy Queens at her party at ON TOP: LeBain. She loved these bitches and has been promoting them ever since.

Dan lives in NYC's 'Curry Hill' with his boyfriend James Whiteside, who is a Principal Dancer in American Ballet Theatre and pop performer JBDUBS. Whiteside also performs as Yoohoo (a member of The Dairy Queens). That bitch busy. And with their cat #MsBit.

Thanks for reading this bio, even though you probably didn't.

Thanks for it."

I was in 8 of the 10 numbers and I did the goddamn thing, I was so excited to get up there and hear what they thought of my performance and what they thought of my RuDemption look because in Season 6, all they wanted to see was glamour, I can assume that that’s what they think, but I want them to congratulate me."
