RuPaul’s Drag Race.Last Friday’s installment featured the season’s ‘Rusical’. Entitled ‘Wigloose’, it was an homage to Bacon’s 1984 breakthrough movie hit, Footloose.
However, on this occasion, it was about a small town banning drag rather than dancing.You can watch it below.
The skit featured Loosey LaDuca as ‘Heaven Bacon’.Bacon posted a message to his Instagram stories praising the production. He also tagged Loosey.“Big shoutout to @rupaulsdragrace’s Wigloose: the RuSical (and props to Heaven Bacon),” the 64-year-old said.Loosey reshared it to her on Instagram, saying, “Well, I’m dead.”Bacon continued, saying, “With all the recent anti-drag bills, this came at just the right time.“Drag is an art and drag is a right.”He also shared a video message RuPaul posted recently condemning attacks on drag queens and LGBTQ+ rights, along with a link to the ACLU “Drag Defense Fund” to help challenge anti-drag legislation.This was one twist too many for one of those involved.Earlier this month, Tennessee became the first state to ban public drag performances.
Idaho, Kentucky, North Dakota, Montana, Oklahoma and Utah are considering similar bans. Texas is mulling four different bills that would put venues that host drag in the same ‘adult’ category as strip clubs.
