Yara Sofia is the drag name of Gabriel Burgos Ortiz, a drag performer originally from Puerto Rico, but now living in Los Angeles, CA. She is best known for competing in the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race, and later RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race; both in which she placed fourth. Her drag daughter is Amalaria Sofia.

During the reunion special in Season 3, Yara won the title of Miss Congeniality, as voted for by fans of the show.

Drag Name Origin

The dance academy she used to work for produced a funny beauty pageant, and she was Miss Cuba. She was told to have a tropical Latin name so she was going to be Yara Sofia Carrasquillo. She chose Yara from her high school friend that was also a dancer who had beautiful legs. She used to wear heels before doing drag and everyone told her she had beautiful legs like her friend. Her friend chose her last name for her.


  • Yara made a dress for Kimora Blac and Kimora planned on wearing it for the finale.
