This week’s Instinct hottie is a tall drink of water that will quench your thirst. At 6’5”, Mackenzie Claude is a mountain of a man who keeps it tight in all the right places. If you’re asking yourself why he looks familiar, that’s because Claude’s alter ego was born on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 when Alaska Thunderfuck transformed the Navy veteran into the Nebraska Thunderfuck, the glamazonian entertainer.
Since appearing on Drag Race, Claude (Nebraska) has toured, modeled, and collaborated with industry insiders and made a career out of being an accidental drag queen.
Now, the entertainer lives in Las Vegas and shares his life with partners drag superstar Derrick Barry and artist Nick San Pedro. If you follow Nebraska, you know there is a feast for the eyes with some thirst traps, daily dealings of Vegas life, and a whole lotta wigs!
As an independent artist, Claude works hard to self-fund all his projects. You can see much more of him on his OnlyFans.
Recently, Nebraska collaborated with one of Instinct’s favorite independent recording artists VELO on the track and music video for Venom.
Let’s get to know Mackenzie Claude (Nebraska Thunderfuck) a little more:
INSTINCT: What has it meant to embrace the drag persona of Nebraska?
MACKENZIE CLAUDE: I believe the greatest risks in life produce the greatest rewards. Drag was a big pivot in my life from the military, but it has been extremely rewarding. Nebraska has opened me up to new possibilities, expanded my audience & turned many of my dreams into realities.
INSTINCT: How has your life pre-Nebraska influenced the artist you are today?
MC: The artist I am today is an accumulation of all those experiences. Surviving an abusive home, foster care, the military, modeling, my friends, my hookups, my highs and my lows. I create from all of those chapters in my life.

INSTINCT: Have you found love? If so, what is the best part of your relationship and what do you love most in your partner(s)?
MC: I have found love, twice actually. I have been in a throuple for the last decade. One of the best parts about my relationship is that they love me unconditionally and we work together as a team. I love that my partners are so different from each other. They keep me on my toes. ❤️
INSTINCT: What is it like being a part of a non-traditional relationship and under public observation?
MC: For the most part, we have had wonderful support from our friends, fans and family. Of course there are people that judge us when they find out that we are a throuple. They make assumptions. We tune them out.
