Trinity Kardashian Bonet is the stage name of Joshua Jones, an American drag performer best known for being a contestant on Season 6 of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Her little sister said she looked like Trinity from The Matrix. She loves the Kardashian family as she thinks they are fashion-forward. Her drag mother was the late Byanka Monroe. Trinity is also a member of the House of Bonet from Atlanta.
RuPaul's Drag Race
During the show, Trinity was known for being moody and closed-off with the other contestants during the show. Whenever she struggled with the main challenges, she often would comment that the challenges were outside her comfort zone and skill set. She also had some tension with fellow contestant Bianca Del Rio, who liked to criticize her, along with other contestants. Trinity revealed in an episode of "Untucked" that she is HIV-positive, which was received with much support from fellow contestants. Bianca commended her for being brave enough to share her status and explained that her moody introvert behavior may have been a result of her keeping her status as a secret.
In the episode "Glamazon by Colorevolution", Trinity was paired with Bianca to create a commercial for RuPaul's new cosmetics line, which targeted "working women." In the commercial, Bianca played a middle-class businesswoman with multiple children, while Trinity played a street hooker. Although Bianca had stated earlier in the season that she did not want to work with Trinity, Bianca became very helpful and encouraging to Trinity, which helped her "break out of her shell." The judges were very surprised at how well Trinity did in this challenge, with both Trinity and Bianca receiving positive critiques.
In the episode "Comedy Queens", Trinity delivered a well-received comedic routine, which made RuPaul cry. RuPaul stated that she was so proud of Trinity's improvement in the competition. In Episode 9, the "RuPaul Talk Show" challenge, Trinity interviewed singer Georgia Holt and her grandson Chaz Bono, calling him "Chad" multiple times, without being corrected. She received poor critiques from the judges and was placed in the bottom two.
Trinity was eliminated in 7th place after having lip-synced against Adore Delano to "Vibeology" and lost.

- Trinity's biography from her website:
- Joshua was born in Jacksonville, FL but spent most of his childhood in sunny Miami, FL with his mother, Veronica and baby sister, Danielle. Joshua's love for drag came while attending a drag pageant held in a public flea market in Miami, FL in 2005, Miss Flea Market International. After seeing the guys compete as girls, Josh knew he wanted to pursue a career as a drag persona. A brief discussion took place and Josh's mom later purchased makeup, hair, and shoes, "Josh's Drag Starter Kit", for him to follow his dreams. At the humble age of 16, Josh relocated from Florida to Atlanta, GA where Trinity K. Bonet was created. Since moving to Atlanta, Trinity has performed as a cast member on many of the cities premiere drag shows including The Legendary Stars of the Century and Blake's on the Park. Trinity is also well noted for her pageantry accomplishments. At the age of 22, Trinity was casted to compete on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6. She didn't win the season, but won the hearts of fans across the world.
- Trinity is one of three RuGirls to win the Miss Parliament House title, the other two being Kennedy Davenport and Trinity The Tuck. Funnily enough, both RuGirls with the name Trinity have won the title.
