We also have an extended first look at Canada's Drag Race and videos from the content queens of the Drag Ra e universe, including Bob and Monét, Willam and Trixie Mattel. There’s lots of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent-packed in this week’s post, so let’s bring it to the runway!

If you want to celebrate life with your favorite queens, a new line of flavored vodkas inspired by six of the world’s most iconic and influential drag queens is here to quench your thirst. Created in partnership with leading drag management firm Producer Entertainment Group (PEG) and crafted in France, SERV Vodka is infused with natural fruit. Each queen has their own unique flavor. Here, they discuss the new collection.

SERV Manila Luzon Pineapple

“I wanted to make sure it was perfect. I didn't want too much pineapple and didn't want it to be too little pineapple, so I had to taste several bottles and cases before I figured out what pineapple flavor was the best. It was the first sample that was the best, but I had several cases to make sure.”

SERV Trixie Mattel Pink Lemonade

 “They mailed me two flasks of vodka. I was like ‘I'll try it. I'm not sure. I'll try a little more. I'm not sure. I'll try a little more….hours in. You guys need to send me more.”

SERV Trinity the Tuck Mixed Berries

 “I love a good cocktail, a good mixed drink. I'm a sissy drinker, so I had to make sure it was really sweet. I love something fruity because I'm a fruit.”

SERV Sharon Needles Blood Orange

  “I had tons of cases sent to my haunted house and I went through all the blood oranges and ended up with type O negative”

SERV Monét X Change Green Apple

“Girl, I drank it smooth with just a little ice, got it chilled and it was delicious.”

SERV Alaska 5000 Original Unflavored 

“My process was very easy. I did test it out. If it's going to be vodka – vodka. It has to be good vodka and I'm telling you it's delicious. DELICIOUS! It really is. You can drink it straight. You can drink it queer.”

SERV Vodka comes complete with music videos and monthly recipe suggestions by the queens themselves and is now available to purchase online HERE. And, to celebrate the launch of SERV Vodka various parties are being planned in surprise cities that will be announced very soon.

Drag queens across the nation are taking a different kind of stage, hoping to make a direct impact on their communities. Honey Mahogany, Maebe A Girl, and Marti Gould Cummings are sashaying their way into the halls of government while Nina West and Bob the Drag Queen know the secret of drag: It’s political. This is #AuthenticVoicesOfPride, presented by Chevrolet.

Chevrolet is matching donations to Black Queer Town Hall up to $25,000. Black Queer Town Hall is a Non-Profit organization led by Peppermint and Bob the Drag Queen that is committed to celebrating black queer excellence by supporting and cultivating community, sharing knowledge, and uplifting voices.
