'Drag Race' Queens Spill the Tea in Billboard Pride Teaser Video: Watch
To kick off pride month, Billboard Pride sat down with some RuPaul’s Drag Race royalty to spill the tea in a new roundtable video.
In the “Spillin’ The Tea” video series, Tammie Brown, Jasmine Masters, Miz Cracker, Eureka O'Hara, Shea Couleé and Ginger Minj discuss a range of topics including the legacy of Drag Race and race relations in drag culture.
“Queer culture is on the global mainstage,” says Miz Cracker, speaking of the universal reach Drag Race has seen in recent years. “We are many and we are mighty.” Ginger Minj, meanwhile, shares her take on dating while being a well-known drag queen, telling a story of a guy she was once seeing. “He turns around,” she shares, “and he goes, ‘I can’t believe I’m getting fucked by Ginger Minj!'”
The queens also touch upon more serious issues facing the world of drag, including race relations in the drag culture, which has been discussed heavily in the current season of RuPaul's Drag Race by contestant The Vixen, who often butted heads with her fellow castmate Eureka O'Hara. “I support the Vixen in everything she represents,” explains O'Hara, “and she’s not afraid to fight.”
Plus, the queens play a handful of games including “Name That Queen” and “Never Have I Ever.”
Check out the teaser above, and make sure to tune in every Wednesday in June to watch a new episode of “Spillin’ the Tea.”
