Hello, hello, hello and welcome to another edition of the Week in Drag, bringing you music, fashion and fun from the queens of the Drag Race universe.

This week, we’ve got commentary from the queens on the acting challenge and pocket runway fashions from last week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. We also bid a fond farewell to the season’s “polite queen” and get to know more about the queens from down under. We also have new music from the UK, Canada and lots, lots more. Let’s waste no more time and let’s bring it to the runway!

If you long for a life with non-stop Drag Race episodes, get prepared to be happy. RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will be sashaying to screens in the US and select territories worldwide exclusively on WOW Presents Plus on Saturday May 1st.

Last week on RuPaul’s Drag Race, the queens hit the set for the filming of the soon-to-be sci-fi classic, “Henny, I Shrunk the Drag Queens.” Later, the queens showcased their favorite “Haute Pocket” looks on the runway. Trixie Mattel and Gigi Goode look back at the acting challenge and runway looks on the latest episode of “The Pit Stop.”

I thought I was a Gottmik stan until I watched the latest episode of “Fashion Photo Ruview.” I had the same reaction to Mik’s timeless pocket look on the runway and I did agree with her and Raven’s “toots” and “boots” on this week’s runway. Side note: Raven’s yellow and blue eye makeup is absolutely everything.

Since we had to turn the top five into the final four this week, we had to say goodbye to fan-favorite Olivia Lux. Michelle Visage chatted with the queen with the most iconic tiny purse since Lizzo about her experience on the show on “What’cha Packin’?”

Trixie Mattel and TikTokker Sarah Schauer take a break from makeup application and indulge in a little self-care. Watch as they facial steaming, face masks, hair masks, manicures and more.

She had to leave Drag Race UK season 2 early, but we all know that Veronica Green is a star, and the video for her new Broadway-inspired ballad “Stars” proves just that.

Our favorite unboxing queen, Willam, is back showing off another haul and paying tribute to Joe Exotic. In “Unboxing at Trash Mountain,” she introduces us to some of her favorite things, including comfy socks, cheeky jewelry, candles and some boss makeup organizers.

I am by no means a gamer, but I love Nicky Doll and Rock M. Sakura. On the latest “Geek Chic” they turn their attention once again the virtual looks of the game Guilty Gear.

And that brings us to the end of this week’s recap of all things drag. Since the queens are such an inspiration for so any, I thought I would sing-off with the latest from Manila Luzon. Check out  “Inspire Me” (featuring) Alaska and, until we meet again, stay healthy, stay safe and say LOVE!
