Hello, hello, hello! We are back with news, updates and lewks from your favorite queens.

This week, we find out whose Snatch Game failed to win over Mama Ru on Drag Race UK, meet the judges (including some very familiar faces) for season 4 of Canada’s Drag Race and get the details on two fierce new series on WOW Presents Plus.

In addition, we bid farewell to Halloween with Jaymes and Delta and say hello to the holidays with Trinity The Tuck. We also have fun new videos from Bob, Trixie and Willam and head into Alyssa Hunters’ drag room. There’s lots to see here, so let’s bring it to the runway!

This week on Drag Race UK, the queens played the beloved Snatch Game and gave us a “heart-on” with their stunning runway looks. Danny Beard takes us through the highs and lows of the episode and chats with the queen who sadly had ton sashay away on “The After Shave.”

While Halloween is now officially in our rear-view mirror, we wanted to share a few more treats with you – because it’s never too early to plan for next year.

Judging by my neighbor’s lawn decorations, Christmas is on the way and Trinity The Tuck has announced not one but two new treats to fill your shimmering stockings this upcoming holiday season.  Her first-ever Christmas album, Trinity Ruins Christmas: The Musical, produced by Drew Louis & co-written by Trinity & Drew features a sleigh full of St Nick’s most talented drag superstars – Alaska, JIMBO, Manila Luzon, Aria B Cassadine, Ginger Minj and Kylie Sonique Love while the accompanying hardcover book Trinity Ruins Christmas: The Chronicles Of Sister Mary Kuntz will feature original illustrations and story co-written by Trinity and Jason Michael Snow. 

Trinity Ruins Christmas: The Chronicles of Sister Mary Kuntz is based on “A Christmas Carol” told through the drag lens of Trinity The Tuck, featuring characters (Luci (the Devil), Sister Mary Kuntz, and more) that she popularized on Drag Race. “I’ve always loved illustrated stories, and I’ve wanted to create one for a long time, this is a major twist on the holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol”. There are definitely similarities with Trinity & Scrooge, but this drag story has many twists and turns.” states Trinity

Both the album and book (and other delights) will be available November 17 on all digital platforms and through Trinity’s merch store . Only 200 copies of the book will be available so be sure to snatch yours up as quickly as possible.

Willam is back with an all-new episode of Beatdown. This time, in her sights, are a new age infomercial starring Kris Jenner, COPS in Reno, drag in the rain, and Heidi and Jimbo’s vacation shenanigans at Willam’s Palm Springs rental.
