Our Favourite Queer 10-Year Challenges!

The 10-year challenge has taken over the internet, and some of our favourite queers were not shy about taking part!

Demi Lovato, Jeffree Star and Halsey sharing their 10 year challenge throwbacks

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of days, you will know that practically everyone and their granny are taking part in the #10YearChallenge sweeping social media. And we are LIVING for these throwbacks. Here are some of our favourite 10-year challenges!

Shane Dawson

The king of YouTube Shane Dawson shared this EPIC throwback to the time of, let’s say, questionable tastes.

Jeffree Star

Everyone’s favourite MUA and all-around icon Jeffree Star didn’t just treat us to a hilarious reminder of 2008 Jeffree, but also our favourites Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato.


Hit-maker Halsey took it one step further when she shared a photo of her kid self in 2002, and honestly, we cannot cope with how cute this is.


Drag Race royalty BenDeLaCreme showed off her glow up not just in drag, but out of drag as well and it looks like four different people.

James Charles

There is so much going on here that I don’t know where to even start. The hair? The camera? I’m shaking.

Gia Gunn

RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars alum Gia Gunn shared three photos showing her progression from ten years ago until now and all we can say is… YES. QUEEN.

Blair St Clair

Meanwhile, this person took it upon themselves to share Blair St Clair’s.

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert shared some throwbacks from 2009 with his favourite celebrity pals, and it’s the most 2009 thing we have ever seen.

Ruby Rose


“I lost the shoulder pads, discovered hair gel and started squinting.” Didn’t we all, Ruby.

Laverne Cox

Ruby Rose’s fellow Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox shared her beautiful ten-year transformation photos with the hashtag #TransIsBeautiful.

Regina George

Dublin drag star Regina George shared the difference in her drag in ten years. Talk about a GLOW UP. She slays always.

James Kavanagh

When the Dublin internet star revealed his ten year transformation, he revealed that he became a hairless cat. You do you, sweetie.

Jonathan Van Ness

The Queer Eye star is giving us life with these throwbacks. Only he can slay all of these hairstyles.
