Tora Himan is the stage name of Matthew Burton Benjamin,[1][2][3] a drag performer best known for competing on the second season of Camp Wannakiki where she placed 1st overall and was crowned Queen of Camp.


Tora Himan... that's Tora, with 1 Himan... is your glamorous, larger than life, curvy camp queen! Tora Himan is best described as the life-of-the-party, pumpkin-spice-holding, glitter-loving, basic bitch that you love to love... and give even more love to. Like so many drag queens, Tora started her journey in musical theatre, never landing the boy roles, so just decided to become the leading lady instead. That said, she became a full-time drag queen!

Originally from the woods of Pennsylvania, Tora grew up on a farm milking cows, helping her family with their butcher shop and twirling baton in her backyard in a muumuu. (SERIOUSLY!) You'll currently find Tora performing in and around Orlando, Florida (theme park capital of the world). No fast pass needed for this “Himan!” Ms. Himan holds several pageant titles including, Miss Rose Dynasty, and Miss Citrus State Comedy Queen. Tora loves to travel the world with her mother, Chinese food buffets and all types of ice cream. #TeamHiman

*Tora is only Jewish by injection[5]

Drag Name Origin

Her drag name is a pun on "tore a hymen", the mucosal tissue that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. The name was picked by her drag mother, Ginger Minj.[6]
