Hello, hello, hello! If you’re looking for a break from the summer heat, take a break and cool off with these smoking hot videos and updates from your favorite queens in The Week in Drag.
We watched another All Star sashay away and she talks to Michelle Visage about her time on the show. We also take a closer look at last week’s “Rudemption” fashions with commentary from Bob, Thorgy, Yuhua, Raja and Raven. In the grand tradition of To Wong Foo, our favorite duo is taking their show on the road and we’ve got all of the details for you – as well as news and videos from the Drag Race universe. Let’s not waste another moment and let’s bring it to the runway!
Monique Heart and “Trixie Mattel” review the half-time all-star extravaganza and the runway fashions on “The Pit Stop”. They also kiki about the celebs they have played and have wanted to play on the show (Monique would make a fabulous Tina Turner, by the way.)
We said goodbye to one of our favorite – and eccentric – OG queens this week, the Puerto Rican sensation, Yara Sofia. She talks to Michelle Visage about her experience the second time around on All Stars on the latest “Whatcha’ Packin’?” I don’t know about you, but I will miss her special brand of crazy.
Bob the Drag Queen and Thorgy Thor take us back to last week’s episode and talk about the hilarious side hustle challenge and rudemption fashions on “Purse First Impressions.”

Forget about the MCU, we’d rather live in Trixie and Katya’s universe. On the latest episode of “UNHhhh”, the pair discuss superheroes and villains, reveal the superpowers they would have and what animal would bring them back to life (a la Catwoman). They also answer a fan question about the pros and cons of being “enemies with benefits.”
If you can’t get enough of Trixie and Katya, you may be in luck as the pair may be coming to a city near you. On Wednesday, the queens announced their upcoming live tour.

It’s no secret that we will never see Willam on All Stars (although, we would not be disappointed if she showed up), but she is giving us her take on some of the runway looks as part of her “Naw Stars” series. With the help of makeup artist Gage Munster she gives us some “Blue Jean Baby Yoda” realness.
