RuPaul’s Drag Race Babe Pearl Coming to Voyeur

Last night, at her weekly amateur drag event Cash 4 Queens, Mimi Imfurst announced that season 7 RuPaul’s Drag Race favorite Pearl will be coming to Voyeur in a few weeks.

“Pearl has been one of the most sought-after Drag Race girls and it’s exciting to introduce her to Philly for the first time,” Imfurst told me before making this pretty big prediction: “If I was a betting woman, I would put my money on Pearl as the winner of season 7.” She told me producers are making it look like Ginger Minj is the obvious choice, but she think they’re setting us up for a big surprise. “I know how they do things around there.”

Pearl has definitely come out of her oyster shell (ha!) since we met her on this season’s debut. The always-mellow diva is currently in the top six with other top contenders like Minj, Kennedy Davenport and Violet Chachki.

It’s too early for me to put all my eggs in the Pearl basket, but there’s one thing she definitely has over the other queens: she’s hot, hot, hot when the makeup comes off. If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll have a chance to meet her boy side (aka Matt James) when she’s in town that weekend. Be on the lookout!

She’ll be performing at Voyeur on Thursday, May 21st. Doors are at 9 pm, there’s a VIP meet-and-greet at 9:30 and the show starts at 10:30. Tickets run $12-$30 and can be purchased here.
