Thorgy Thor is the stage name of Shane Galligan, an American drag queen and musician most known for competing on the eighth season of RuPaul's Drag Race and for returning on the third season of All Stars.
Galligan was born in May 25, 1984. He studied music at the University of Hartford in Connecticut. There he learned how to play the violin, viola and cello. His first drag performance was as Frank N. Furter from The Rocky Horror Show. He also was Marvel Ann in the theater version of Psycho Beach Party.
He was brought back for the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars, revealed on October 20, 2017. Thorgy got eliminated in ninth place by season 2 and 3 queen Shangela, losing to Kennedy Davenport. Her response to being eliminated, "Oh Jesus, gross" was turned into a 3 second video clip and became a meme that went viral. During the finale of the show, it was noted that Thorgy was the only queen to vote for Shangela, the front-runner, despite a previously rocky relationship.
Thorgy won the LEGEND award at the 2014 Brooklyn Nightlife Awards.
