Kylie "Sonique" Love, also simply known as Sonique, is a drag queen, performer, actress and one of the Season 2 contestants of RuPaul's Drag Race (placed 9th).

Name Origin

Sonique's drag name comes from a same-named British artist. She likes it because it sounds powerful (like sonic powers) and it's a one-word name, just as she wanted.
