Gigi Goode slayed on tonight's (April 3) episode on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12. Not only did Gigi win the maxi challenge but the queen also came out as gender-fluid and shared her story with the world.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on Friday (April 3) night for an all-new episode. With just six episodes down, this week, the series began with the most-awaited Snatch Game and ended with a battle between two queens that was long-awaited. 

The Snatch Game is a challenge that distinguishes the top drag queens from the bottom and that's exactly what this season's challenge did. We saw some of the best and worst Snatch Game performances. The worst coming from Aiden Zhane, Brita and Crystal Methyd, while the best came from Gigi Goode and Jackie Cox. 

But the standout this week was undoubtedly Gigi, as the queen slayed with every performance of hers. For her Snatch Game performance, she decided to impersonate robo-celebrity Sophia. It was not only her quick comedic responses that got the judges including RuPaul Charles loving her character, but it was also her body language as the robot. It was hysterical. 

Gigi has Season 12 winner all over her with her impeccable performance every episode. Without a doubt, Gigi won tonight's challenge, but that's not the only reason fans are sharing their love for the queen. Post the Snatch Game, while the queens were getting ready for their runway look challenge (Frozen Eleganza) Gigi opened up and shared her story. Not just that but she also came out as gender-fluid admitting that this was the first time she said it out loud. 

'Growing up I've always been interested in feminine things. I wanted to wear dresses to school. I've kind of always thoughts there's no point putting a label in anything regarding gender. I don't even think I've ever said this out loud but I think I'm fluid. Sometimes I identify as more male. Sometimes I identify as more feminine. I think I'm both and I'm neither," Gigi revealed. 

Taking to Twitter post Gigi's reveal fans stan the queen for her performance on this week's episode. But also shared their love for the genderfluid drag queen. 

"Gigi Goode coming out as gender fluid on drag race amazing Absolutely amazing #DragRace," a fan wrote. Another added, "WE STAN GIGI GOODE OUR GENDER FLUID SEASON 12 WINNER #DragRace." 

"Im so so so proud of gigi coming out as genderfluid! we love you so much!#DragRace," a fan shared. While another wrote, "Gigi Goode came out as genderfluid on @RuPaulsDragRace. I think this is a first for RPDR." 

"GIGI COMING OUT AS GENDERFLUID I AM SO PROUD OF HER," a fan said. Another shared, "Omggg so here for queen Gigi Goode coming out as gender fluid on tonight’s #DragRace we stan and support."
