drag performer Twink Trash and grandmother

This is what joy looks like.

Drag queen and opera singer Twink Trash recently took to TikTok to show off their new handmade lewk, but it was their grandmother's delighted and joyful reaction to the outfit that stole the show.

The video begins with Twink Trash showing off the outfit, a black-and-yellow checked ensemble topped off with an oversize matching top hat, with the caption "me doing drag for the past six years." The video then cuts to them walking into a room where their grandmother is sitting on a couch so that she can see the new outfit.

As soon as their grandmother spots them, she's wide-eyed and open-mouthed in awe of the outfit. "You look so great!" she exclaimed, while giving them an enthusiastic thumbs up. She then pulled out her phone to take photos of her grandchild.

In the video, Twink Trash explains it was their grandmother who was responsible for their appreciation for fashion and even teaching them how to sew. This is why, Twink Trash says, they go to their grandmother's room "every time I make a new outfit" so she can "take pictures for her church friends," adding that they love their grandmother "so much."

Fans reacted strongly to the video and were clearly touched by how loving and supportive Twink Trash's grandmother is in it.

"This made me cry," one commenter wrote. "The genuine happiness and excitement for your creations." Another commenter said it was the "most wholesome video I've ever seen." The video quickly went viral and currently has more than 3.4 million views.

In the comments, Twink Trash revealed that they shared the commenters' reactions with their grandmother, who loved the response to the video. "She's beaming and so overwhelmed with love," they wrote. "Thank you all for being so sweet."
