So one February night in 2009 I discovered this small little show called Rupaul's Drag Race. This little show would go on and change my life, and the lives of many other people. Gay, Straight, bisexual it didn't matter who you were into, people fell in love with this show. So the first season of Rupaul's Drag Race(RPDR) had nine of the fiercest queens (at the time) competing to show their Charisma Uniqueness Nerve and Talent (extra points if you figure out what she was going for there, took me 3 seasons, but I'm a lil dumb). One by one Ru picked those bitches apart until she was left with her top 3 queens; Rebecca Glasscock, Nia Flowers, and the winner (no clue why) Bebe Zahara Benet (camarooon). The winner of the challenge head lines Absolute vodkas Pride tour, and still (not sure why) Bebe did that. Bebe was a pretty queen, but for a cast of nine I had no idea who she was until she was up for elimination one night. So when Ru picks her "Top" girls and her "bottom" girls (hehe dirty Ru), the two bottom girls have to "Lip Sync for Their Lives!" What that means is, they must have a lip sync battle between one another and the results of which allows Ru to pick a girl that will return to the line up. Season one, while ground breaking, has been out shined by every other season (as a show should do in progression).
I hope you enjoyed, this is only a small bit of the iceberg that is Drag Queens, I could write for days on them. They are a guilty pleasure of mine. I will probably blog again about my favorite NY Queens, because like I said I'm obsessed!!
