Senate Minority Leader Pelosi, who has an infallible record on supporting LGBT rights, will be joining Drag Race to offer her advice and guidance to the drag queen elite.

Drag Race All-Stars is a spin-off of the popular, long-running series RuPaul's Drag Race, in which contestants from the original show vie to become the season's top drag performer.

Historically, guest judges are very much in line with Emmy victor RuPaul's DNA.

Pelosi retweeted RuPaul and wrote, "All I can say is, you betta werk!" Other guest judges on this season's All Stars include Shay Mitchell, Vanessa Hudgens, and Adam Lambert, among others.

Pelosi tweeted Thursday that she had a "fabulous" time filming her cameo for the show.

As a refresher, the queens returning are: Aja, BenDeLaCreme, Milk, Chi Chi DeVayne, Thorgy Thor, Morgan McMichaels, Kennedy Davenport, Shangela and Trixie Mattel-along with a surprise tenth competitor.

Pelosi is a "fierce servant of our nation (and) "Drag Race's" mission is to teach the children and honor those who fight on our behalf", Barbato said in an email to CNN.

A red-hot lip-sync performance or a fire sashay earns the winning super-fan two tickets to RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 finale taping. Meanwhile, the third season of spin-off show RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars will begin airing on January 25.
