Club 96, for those of you who don't know, is a club invented by Naomi Smalls and Valentina. Club 96 was formed as part of a challenge in which the Drag Race queens had to create and host their own club nights. Club 96 was an exclusive club for the fashion forward. It lost the challenge but Naomi and Valentina repeatedly whispering 'Club 96' was so iconic that fans turned it into a meme.

In it fans simply take photos of famous people whispering to each other and caption it 'Club 96'. That or they come up with something completely new and funny inspired by the club. Confused?
