RuPaul’s Drag Race’s season five winner Jinkx Monsoon wants a job at Blizzard.

Specifically, they want to voice an Overwatch hero—the queen of Junkertown. Monsoon plays a lot of Overwatch already, but the natural progression is to voice a character. Who better than the red-headed Junkertown queen? Monsoon started a Twitter campaign, not unlike Brooklyn Nine-nine actor Terry Crews’, to put their name in for the position.

Monsoon appeared on (and won) season five of RuPaul’s Drag Race, an American reality TV show that deems one contestant “the next drag superstar.” Season five aired from January 28, 2013 to May 6, 2013. Since winning RuPaul’s Drag Race, Monsoon has done voice-over work for Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe.

This morning, Monsoon tweeted at Blizzard casting director Andrea Toyias to officially put their name in for a part. “Hello lovely,” Monsoon tweeted. “Looking for a Junkertown queen? Talk about my dream job.”

Monsoon isn’t Australian, but is confident they could produce an authentic accent. “I’ve spent a lot of time there,” they tweeted. “I also teach phonetics and voice and speech to actors… so I think I could handle it.”

Crews’ Twitter campaign for the role of Doomfist didn’t exactly work out, but it was a fun thing for Overwatch fans to get behind. Actor Sahr Ngaujah ended up getting the role of Doomfist—and he’s a perfect fit.

Here’s to hoping things fare better for Monsoon. The Junkertown queen hasn’t actually been confirmed as a playable character, but fans hope she’ll one day make it into the game. She’s already got a voice, as debuted with the Junkertown map, but that could change if she officially enters the game.
