RuPaul’s Drag Race Live, which officially kicked off on Thursday (Jan. 30) night at Flamingo Las Vegas, is like nothing audiences have seen from the franchise. From off-the-cuff comedy, to eye-popping costumes, mezmorizing lights and projetions, as well as original music and choreography, the show has it all.
Queerness has always had a strong presence in music and fashion, taking what were once viewed as binary mediums outside of normalized gender constructs. Music and fashion are not strictly male or female – they are simply fluid and can be worn or enjoyed by anyone.
This weekend, RuPaul's DragCon NYC took over the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City for a 3-day drag extravaganza. Featuring more events, more queens and a crowd of over 100,000 diverse attendees, the event showed how far drag has come in the modern day.
Early Saturday morning, as RuPaul cut the official ribbon at RuPaul’s DragCon NYC, the superstar host also announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! will hit the Las Vegas strip at the Flamingo starting January 2020.
