RuPaul’s Drag Race is a WORLDWIDE phenomenon that heading down to Mexico. So, I had a chance to attend Drag Race Mexico premiere at World of Wonder! I even had the opportunity to talk with some local Queens, as well as past season All-Stars!
The queens arrived on the pink carpet in their best drag, and there were plenty of stunning looks to see. I spoke with them about the power of drag, as well as why the representation of drag all over the world is so important. As a huge fan of this series since season 1, getting to speak with these incredible artists was a dream come true! The night also included an incredible performance from RPDR All-Stars Season 8, Jessica Wild!
The premiere of Drag Race Mexico was a night to remember! I’m also sure this spin-off will be a hit with fans of the show. These new queens are talented and charismatic, and did I forget to mention…the drama. If you’re a fan of the competition series, then you won’t want to miss Drag Race Mexico.
