For those not in the know, RuPaul’s Drag Race is basically America’s Next Top Model but celebrating the art of drag. It debuted in 2009 on a small LGBTQ+ network, and has since shattered all expectations by becoming a certified pop culture phenomenon – having launched the careers of over 150+ drag queens around the world, inspired top fashion designers, consistently trended #1 on Twitter, and attracted mega-talented guest stars like Lady Gaga, Lizzo, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and many more.
While the 13th season of the American iteration has just finished, the smash-hit has expanded to many corners of the globe, including Thailand, Holland, the United Kingdom and Canada’s Drag Race.
The first ever Australia season sees RuPaul sitting on the judging panel alongside Drag Race veteran Michelle Visage and Australian comedian Rhys Nicholson, with special guest starts including popstars Kylie and Dannii Minogue and director Taika Waititi.
Now the live show will see our Queens live on stage in all their glory.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will tour Australia this September. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au.
