Justin Andrew Honard, better known by his stage name Alaska Thunderfuck and also known as Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, Alaska 5000, and mononymously as Alaska, is an American drag performer and recording artist.
Thunderfuck is known for competing in the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race, where she was a runner-up.
Honard has a half-brother named Cory Binney, with whom he stars in a World of Wonder web series, Bro'Laska. He also has an older sister Brooke, and a younger brother Ryan.
Honard originally moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. Dissatisfied with the audition process, he turned to drag and got a job at the West Hollywood club, Fubar, and frequently performed in Trannyshack shows in Los Angeles.
Along with Needles and Cherri Baum, Honard formed the band Haus of Haunt, which later evolved into a drag troupe based out of the bar The Blue Moon. As part of Haus of Haunt, he helped present the Pittsburgh debut of fellow drag queen and recording artist Christeene Vale in 2013.
During this period Thunderfuck released her debut mixtape Glamtron.
It was announced in November 2012 that Thunderfuck was among 14 drag queens who would be competing as Alaska on the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race. She had auditioned for every season for the show.
Along with fellow competitor Roxxxy Andrews, she was declared runner-up of the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race during the season finale.
With half-brother Cory Binney, Thunderfuck has a web series sponsored by World of Wonder, called Bro’Laska.
In September 2014, Thunderfuck became a spokesmodel for American Apparel.
Thunderfuck has since pursued a music career, and has released a string of singles.
On October 14, 2016, Thunderfuck released her second album, Poundcake.
Thunderfuck's drag name is derived from Alaskan Thunderfuck, a strain of marijuana.
