RuPaul’s Drag Race: Who is Brita Filter?
Brita Filter is one of the 13 contestants taking part in series 12 of Drag Race.
She’s 34 years old and lives in New York City.
In her Drag Race introduction video, Brita stated that a lot of people are “incredibly intimidated” by her. Brita put this down to her loudness and 6ft height combined.
“With this hair, I’m a seven-foot woman. I’m a rhinoceros tryna be a giraffe right here.”
Brita also added that she’s “scared about the sewing” on the show, but added: “I’m a good little seamstress, I can make a little boop boop dress.”

Brita’s work ethic
One thing that the drag queen ensured she made a point of was the fact that she is certainly willing to work hard.
She said: “Being a New York City drag queen, you have to work hard, work consistently and you have to entertain the masses.”
Explaining where her quirky name came from, Brita said: “My name is Brita because I met a girl named Brita. I was like ‘oh it’s like that water thing’ and so I decided to be anything but pure and just be Brita.”
