Pearl Liaison, or simply known as Pearl, is the stage name of Matt James, a drag performer from Brooklyn, NY. He is a contestant on Season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Despite being somewhat popular among the viewers, Pearl is often looked at as one of the weakest queens to ever reach the top three, alongside Rebecca Glasscock.

About Pearl

Matt was born on September 11, 1990.

Pearl was heavily criticized by RuPaul and the judges for not being enthusiastic enough during the first four episodes of the show and was even said to be 'sleeping' through the competition. After a lipsync against her friend Trixie Mattel, Pearl began to take the competition much more seriously and secured herself a placement in the top three, along with Ginger Minj, and Violet Chachki.

She initiated her musical career as a DJ in 2015, releasing her first electronic music album Pleasure.
