I was wondering this the other day. I was in the shower and started thinking about my favorite drag queen from the ’90s and my favorite character in … But I’m a Cheerleader. Don’t ask me why I was thinking about RuPaul in the shower, that is just when I do my best pondering. So, I googled her and saw the makings of what is about to be my new favorite show: RuPaul’s Drag Race. Oh, yes, I’m not kidding.
Now I remember that Cincinnati’s very own Jessica Dimon took a shot at becoming a cast member, but at the time I had forgotten this.
Anyway, the queens seem fierce and I know that this will soon become one of my favorite TV shows. Lord knows I love drag queens and they love me. My roommates tell me I am a drag queen trapped in a woman’s body. And what could be better than drag queens fighting it out for the ultimate prize: media attention, fame, and you know, some money too?
Based on the cast list descriptions, Shannel looks like she will be my favorite: “This girl is fierce! Shannel brings the bright lights and skimpy costumes of the Vegas strip to RuPaul’s Drag Race. She’s got a killer body, dazzling wardrobe, sickening makeup skills and truckloads of confidence.”
Full episodes will be available at Logo Online starting Feb. 2.
