Yara Sofia

Born Gabriel Burgos, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, this queen is better known as Yara Sofia. She is 31 years old and has, since birth, always shown interest in theatrical arts, dancing, and design. Yara holds a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre as well as an Associates of Arts in Fashion Design/Haute Couture. While designing and creating costumes for musicals and plays at Universidad del Sagrado Corazón (Sacred Heart University) in Puerto Rico, Yara decided to continue developing herself as an actor/performer. With that desire and a Halloween dare, Yara dived into the art of drag. In 2005, she won her first title as “Miss Road to Diva” at Krash Nightclub in Puerto Rico. Five years later, in 2010, Yara hoped to take her drag career to the next level and decided to audition for RuPaul’s Drag Race, which was then transmitted on Logo and Vh1. After being invited to participate in the competition, placing in the Top 4, she was voted for people’s choice as Miss Congeniality of Season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. From there, Yara began traveling all over the world, showcasing her amazing and unique talent as a drag queen, performer, and designer. She was invited back to RuPaul’s Drag Race for the All Stars edition and was paired with Alexis Mateo. Since the show aired, Yara moved to Las Vegas to continue growing as a performer. On July 2016 She became one of the Ladies of Piranha Nightclub where she performs weekly. She also became one of the resident divas of Seńor Frogs Drag Brunch.  Yara was named Miss Skin Wars 2016 from the highly popular Game Show Network “Skin Wars”.
