Club 96 refers to a fictional nightclub on the reality competition series RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars. On the series, contestants were challenged with creating a nightclub. Drag queens Naomi Small and Valentina formed "Club 96," an exclusive establishment the name of which was whispered by the contestants numerous times on the episode. Following its airing, fans of the series posted images of powerful and famous people whispering into each other's ears with the caption "Club 96."


On January 25th, 2019, the episode "Queen of Clubs" of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars aired in the United States.[1] In the episode, Valentina and Naomi Smalls formed "Club 96" as part of the competition.
