Take a good look at what’s happening these next couple of weeks. While the UK is Ru-watching Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Netflix, Mama Ru is taking her queens from Season 7 around the United States, while her former cast is Battling it out on Battle Of The Seasons. Meanwhile, Logo is pumping advertisement after advertisement that Season 7 starts in just over a week. As if that weren’t enough, World of Wonder announced that they would be hosting the first ever Drag Convention in Los Angeles, California in May, right about the time when we’ll find out who the top 3 or 4 are being revealed or possibly even the next drag superstar is crowned.
Let’s not forget, Covergurlz 2 released a couple weeks ago and we’re already getting “New York City Beat” crammed into our heads by watching the tons of WOW Presents webseries “Alyssa’s Secret,” “Bro’Laska,” “Really Queen?,” “Dirty Dish,” “Fashion Photo RuView,” “Ring My Bell,” “Raja Drawja,” “Cher Tweets,” “Transformations,” “Living For The Lipsync,” “Milk’s LegenDAIRY Looks,” and Delta’s new show “Dear Delta.” Obviously, RuPaul is among the best marketing packages in the world. She’s among the likes of Disney, let’s see a Ru World please. Those would be some Extra special rides and some fierce entertainment with charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
Thank you RuPaul (if you ever see this), you made this thing called drag a more respected and accepted form of art. You’ve given those who didn’t know what to do with this overwhelming feeling of dressing up in a way that is counter to what society calls normal absolutely fabulous and sought after. You’ve set a great example of what you can do despite struggle and not fitting the mold of what success looks like.

at least her racer babies, the rest of her family has to wait a couple more months.
These two amazing artists are inspirational.
If you’re watching on “catch up” please know we’re going to talk about the finale of Celebrity Big Brother UK. If you haven’t yet seen it, please don’t read on. Ok, now, let’s talk about the lovely Michelle Visage. We can’t congratulate her for winning the big prize for Big Brother UK, but we can congratulate her on winning the hearts of the UK telly audience.
Michelle has been an advocate for LGBTQ rights and the community as a whole. At no point did she sway from the reason she was in the house to begin with. She was speaking up for those who didn’t have a voice. While it was hard to hear her voice at times over the loud mouths of Perez and whoever he was pissing off at the time, we definitely heard Michelle loud and clear.
And advocate she was, concerned about how the media would view the LGBTQ community with the antics of Perez Hilton and the drinking habits of Kavana. But Michelle was a diva and a drag queen through the entire month. She wore her high heels to wash dishes, but oddly not to dance in the disco circle. She tried the tanning stain that Katie P brought to the party and stood up for those who she felt were being bullied. Michelle will forever be Mama Michelle and she has done the United States and her entire following proud.
A huge salute to you Michelle Visage, you didn’t murder that guy Mario and you managed to look fierce along the way. You’re our champion through and through.
Kelly’s wet-dream come true.
There’s a great conversation happening.
It’s time for the RuPaul Army to unite and get Michelle “the crown” on Celebrity Big Brother UK. Michelle has always stood hand in hand with the LGBTQ community and her stance in the house has been nothing short of amazingly strong, supportive and honest. In a house where the loudest mouths got all the air time, Michelle has still managed to make a mark and ensure people were not mislead to believe someone like Mario Lavandeira, more commonly known as Perez Hilton, is the face of “Gay America.” With all that the LGBTQ community has gained, he has posed as a bit of a blemish on what people may perceive as typical.
For all of us who were watching the goings on of Celebrity Big Brother UK “on catch up” we feel powerless when it comes to voting and being heard due to the restrictions the Big Brother phone lines have had placed on them. However, every cloud has a silver lining. Michelle has a UK based best friend named Lyndsey who has volunteered to make sure every vote from the US is represented in the UK. So take a moment to spend a dollar or two or more to ensure Michelle gets the support we’re sending her way.
