Where are the queens?

A brief summary of how you can get some more drag queens on TV outside of the competition shows

Willam in Wig

Do you ever feel like when you watch these “drag shows” you really wish you could see more of them outside of the competitions?

Well, I guess Mama Ru does too because as usual, she’s brought her favorites to her Netflix show with her. Now we all know Moms don’t have favorites (wink wink) but let’s face it, there are clearly some she wants to be around a little more often than others. The Netflix show AJ and The Queen follows a queen and her incredibly insightful young co-star on a journey of miles and miles of self maturity and experience.

What about other shows like Dragula? Will The Boulet Brothers make a feature-length film, we can already tell they like to tell stories by the intros of the competition show Dragula, also on Netflix. Will we get the full story in one long piece or will they leave the acting chops to Ru and continue with the chopping of heads of the losing contestants? Unfortunately, we don’t have any inside scoop on that yet, but we’ll keep asking The Boulet Brothers once they remove the restraining order.

In the meantime, we urge you to watch as much of the projects the queens do to keep them booked and working. Local queens (Non-Drag Race contestants – as of the publishing of this story) like Misty Violet, Allusia, and the LA gang can be seen in Cherry Pop with Bob The Drag Queen, Tempest DuJour, and more. While documentaries like “Wig” on HBO show off a slew of New York Queens when they pulled off the revival of Wigstock.

Whatever you do, get some more drag in your life because life is just too serious and drag queens let us have a good time and escape for a while. Thank you to all the queens who support us and entertain us and help us get through life with some laughter and flare. It can’t be easy in those heels and wigs… not to mention the tucks – AKA prison for your jewels.
