RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant and New York Drag scene star Honey Davenport features in a brand new advertising campaign by leading global review platform Trustpilot. Honey Davenport, the stage name of James Heath-Clark, competed in season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race but the performer, singer and activist is best known as a fixture of the

Yvie Oddly, winner of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 11 (image via VH1)Yvie Oddly, the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11, recently wrote that it’s selfish for fans to expect drag queens to take photos with them after they finish performing because it’s like asking a star chef for free food after they’ve run out of ingredients… or something. Here’s what Oddly wrote on Twitter: Oddly is young (25 years old), has only been Drag Race’s reigning queen for a little...

A teen drag queen knew how to get his classmates cheering at graduation: do a death drop. Brandon Austin, who performs as Sophia Stardust, just graduated from West Kent College, near London, England. He told Gay Star News that he noticed most of his theatre classmates were doing more than walking across the stage. They were adding bows or waving to the crowd. “I just said to my friends, ‘How iconic would it be if I did a death drop?'” he said. “All...

In an honest and, at times, heartbreaking new interview with Gay Star News, RuPaul‘s Drag Race alum Laganja Estranja is spilling major tea on the show that helped propel her into stardom. And we can’t say we entirely blame her. Asked whether she would ever consider returning to All Stars, Laganja says producers approach her every season and she always turns them down. Except last season, when she said yes, but then had trouble passing the psych evaluation. “There was one...

The iconic drag queen’s talk show is on the final leg of a three-week test run with Fox. But the world needs this show, produced by World of Wonder, even after pride month. This isn’t Charles’ first time at the talk show rodeo. He hosted The RuPaul Show on VH1 from 1996 to 1998. Donned in full drag, he and best Judy, Michelle Visage, were changing the face of television long before RuPaul’s Drag Race. “For me, the talk show has never...

Brooke Lynn Hytes (screenshot from VH1’s RuPaul‘s Drag Race)RuPaul’s Drag Race already has regional versions for Thailand, South American and the U.K., but because Mama Ru won’t be happy until she achieves world domination, she’s apparently creating a Canadian version, and the guest judges better include Celine Dion, a hockey puck covered in maple syrup and moose made out of poutine. According to Entertainment Weekly, Drag Race Canada will feature 10 one-hour episodes and air on the Canadian networks Crave...

Her one-woman show may be called “Help Me, I’m Dying,” but Katya Zamolodchikova, aka Katya, aka Brian McCook is doing just fine, thank you. The RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 7 and Drag Race All-Stars season 2 standout has had a wild ride, from coming up in the Boston drag scene to finding a massive audience through TV and an ever-expanding one with the success UNHhhh, her web series with Trixie Matell. UNHhhh was later picked up by Vice for television as The Trixie and Katya...

Before launching into superstardom, RuPaul made a quick cameo in the music video for B-52’s camp classic “Love Shack.” Thirty years later, a number of her most famous protégées have starred in music videos with some of the biggest names in music – Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Dolly Parton – and yes, Eminem – are just a few music icons who dazzled viewers with the magic of drag. While we wait for Madonna to join the ranks (All Stars 4 co-champ Monét...

Buckle your seatbelts, people. JetBlue just hired two sassy drag queen flight attendants … and it’s gonna be a bumpy ride. They’ve wrangled Bob the Drag Queen and Trixie Mattel — the winners of RuPaul’s Drag Race season eight and All Stars 3 respectively — to put on skin-tight, highly sequined uniforms and unveil JetBlue’s newest jet. It’s named “Shantay Blue Stay,” a play off of “Shantay, you stay,” RuPaul’s catchphrase for whenever she allows a talented queen to stay...

Pearl made quite the flazéda on season 7 of RuPaul‘s Drag Race, but you may not recognize her in San Francisco this weekend. And for good reason. Matthew James Lent, the performer behind Pearl, has been building up a new persona, Roxanne, and she’s set to make her live debut on June 15 at Fake and Gay in San Francisco. Here’s some Roxanne to get revved up (or down or whatever direction you find yourself after hitting play) with, and if you happen...

In Columbus, Ohio, Nina West isn’t just the Miss Congeniality of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 — she’s a hometown hero. And now the drag queen, a.k.a. Andrew Levitt, has her own street in the Biggest Small Town in America. Nina announced the news on Instagram on June 10, showing a photo of the intersection of Hull Alley and High Street in the city’s stylish Short North Arts District. In the pic, Hull Alley has been renamed “Nina West Way.”...

Any ranking is bound to touch a nerve, but Vulture’s new ranking of “The Most Powerful Drag Queens in America,” which also appeared in New York Magazine, seems especially shady. Online, backlash to the ranking has been swift and fierce, with RuPaul’s Drag Race queens — including many on the list — reading the editors for filth. For starters, many of the drag queen bios contained inaccuracies, with Vulture later adding a footnote attributing the “incorrect” bio blurbs to a...

For any Drag Race fan who still doesn’t know who took the season 11 crown, we have no sympathy at this point in saying it was Yvie Oddly. And while Yvie cemented her place in the Drage Race herstory books, her father, who was in attendance for the finals, was a breakout star of the episode. “I already knew it was going to be this way,” an amused Yvie told Entertainment Weekly following the filming. “People have always told me I have a...

In honor of Pride Month, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams announced Monday the release of an ice cream flavor, online collection, and t-shirt partnership with one of our favorite queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11… breakout star Nina West. In continued and long-standing support of the LGBTQ community, Jeni’s is donating 100% of profits from each item during the month of June to The Nina West Foundation, which supports LGBTQ causes. “We recognize...
