UK Drag Race vs the World

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to another Week in Drag with news and updates from the Drag Race universe.

This week a new queen was added to the hall of winners and we got lots of fashion and drama from the longest Drag Race season ever. In addition to chats with Drag Race vs. The World finalists (and winner) and recaps and reviews of the DragCon panel challenge episode, we check in with some of your favorite Drag Race alums.

Ready to kiki and spill some tea? We’re here for you…so let’s bring it to the runway!

On last week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the queens joined together to present DragCon panels on the topic of men and strutted the runway in fierce shoulder-padded fashions. Monét X Change and Brooke Lynn Hytes take us through the episode – from the hilarious quick drag mini challenge to the lip sync that spared two queens on “The Pit Stop.”
