Trinity the Tuck

Trinity “The Tuck” is clearly an expert when it comes to the art of tucking. But fear not. She’s all too happy to share what she knows on the Down Low.

Out of the spotlight, Trinity The Tuck is Birmingham, Alabama native Ryan Taylor. As Trinity, she was one of the 14 queens who competed on the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, ultimately placing in third/fourth place alongside Shea Couleé. Now she’s preparing to return to flatscreen around the world as one of the contestants in RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4.

And of course he practice of “tucking” is one of the more time-honored and less pleasant chores associated with drag and involves careful concealment of the male anatomy in order to create a more … seamless … contour and profile. You’re unlikely to find much about it in a Boy Scout manual, but Trinity the Tuck being the giving goddess she is, has a few words of caution in our video, and it’s not for the squeamish. Tucking does have a certain Stephen King novel quality about it, as guys try to wrestle themselves to the ground in order to create the perfect tuck.

We caught up with Trinity at NYC Drag Con a few weeks back, and when she heard why we were there and what the topic of conversation would be, she ushered us right in for a personal audience. And when we posed the question on camera, a broad smile crept across her face.

Here’s what she told us: “Metrosource wants to know — What’s one thing that you guys don’t know about tucking that only I would know? It is that it is very dangerous. Sometimes if you are in a long tuck for a long time, things can get twisted, and you’re gonna have to go see a doctor, girl! So, be careful tucking. Go see my tutorial on my YouTube for directions, and good luck!”

So next time you’re feeling pumped about squeezing into some pumps, remember Trinity’s junk-saving guidelines — unless you just don’t give a tuck.
