Season 16 of MTV reality series RuPaul’s Drag Race is over, and America’s Next Drag Superstar has been crowned.

This edition of RuPaul’s Drag Race featured 14 queens from across the country battling it out for the win.

Contestants besides the final three included Q, (Kansas City, Missouri), Morphine Love Dion (Miami), Dawn (New York City), Mhi’ya Iman Le’Paige (Miami), Plasma (New York City), Xunami Muse (New York City), Megami (New York City), Geneva Karr (Brownsville, Texas), Amanda Tori Meating (Los Angeles), Mirage (Las Vegas) and Hershii LiqCour-Jeté (Los Angeles).

But the series saw Nymphia Wind win the competition as America’s Next Drag Superstar. The 28-year-old performer is the first queen from Taiwan to take the title and the third Asian/Pacific Islander winner since season 3 champ Raja and season 15 champ Sasha Colby.

Nymphia beat runners-up Sapphira Cristál and Plane Jane. Nymphia edged out Sapphira after an acrobatic final lip sync to Kylie Minogue’s “Padam Padam.”

“To those who feel like they don’t belong, just remember to live fearlessly and to live their truth — and Taiwan this is for you!” Nymphia said as she took her victory walk.
