A recap of the premiere episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, which introduced this season’s big twist, and teased another one.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 2 released its trailer yesterday, and it reveals a major change to the structure of the competition: instead of lip syncing for their life and being sent home by RuPaul, the contestants will be sent home by each other.

RuPaul’s Drag Race: Ruvealed, which are repeats of earlier seasons with new content added, make the drag queen competition even more entertaining.
More than three years after the first all-star season, RuPaul’s Drag Race will air its all-star competition. The show is also filming its eighth season, which means there will be two seasons of the Logo show in 2016.

The elimination order on Logo’s drag queen competition RuPaul’s Drag Race and other elements of the competition are fixed by the show’s producers, according to a person who correctly spoiled this season’s top three. Three months ago, long before Monday’s episode, the person correctly identified Ginger Minj, Pearl, and Violet Chachki as the final three… continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race made good on its predictable promise to bring back an eliminated contestant, which RuPaul teased last week with a tongue-in-cheek, I-know-this-is-a-contrived twist language statement. The result was that this season’s worst elimination was undone, but there was also an opportunity for all the eliminated contestants to get some redemption during a strong… continue reading
The companion series to RuPaul’s Drag Race has been demoted to a day-after, online-only series, but the stripped-down version is proving to be even more compelling than the version that aired on television.

Episodes of Untucked start in media res, as RuPaul tells several of the queens they’re safe from… continue reading

As I mentioned at the start of the season, when I wrote about trying to understand the passionate love people have for the series I’ve only watched an episode or two of RuPaul’s Drag Race sporadically since season one. This was my first full season since then, and I come away from it as a… continue reading
Logo has pulled the fourth episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race and apologized for what it called “insensitive” language and that others referred to as “anti-trans slurs.” In addition, the show will edit out “you’ve got she-mail” lines from future episodes. The episode included “Female or She-Male” challenge, which was guest hosted by someone from Us… continue reading
More than any other series, people ask why I’m not covering Logo’s competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race. There’s undeniable passion for and commitment to this series, and the superlatives never end: it’s not just the best competition show, it’s the best reality show for some people. I haven’t watched since season one, which I didn’t… continue reading
