Every Tuesday morning Philly party producer and drag queen enthusiast Josh Schonewolf recaps the latest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The gay Super Bowl (aka Rupaul’s Drag Race) returned last night, and season six seems to be bigger and better than the others. Fourteen queens, crazy challenges, a big bucket of shade, and Rupaul herself make for an amazing show that everyone is obsessed with. Almost every gay bar in town was showing it, because Drag Race truly has become an important and exciting TV experience in the community.
Last night, in a twist of gay fate, only seven of the new crop of 14 were introduced: Adore Delano, Vi Vacious, April Carrion, Laganja Estranja, Kelly Mantle, BenDelaCreme, and Gia Gunn (see my rundown of the entire cast here.) Rupaul explained that two premieres are better than one, so last night was the first of a two-part season opener. This is Rupaul’s way of not letting anyone slip under the radar.
