RuPaul’s Drag Race is daring to do things differently in its 13th season. The show has been a savior of isolation, stretching over months as we tune in every Friday evening. The queens have been sequestered and sanitized every step of the way in filming the iconic competition during a pandemic. Each week the panel of judges sit six feet apart and critique the diverse array of queens for their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. This season stands apart for sharing the experiences of entertainers who have had their industry and lives shaken by the tumultuous events of 2020.
Seven queens have sashayed away and we’ve come to a perfect six pack of remaining queens that would make RuPaul scream, “Bring back my beers!”
Rincon Reservation Road (3R) Brewery has the powerful honor of bridging Native American ancestral heritage with the craft beer community. Tucked away in Valley Center, 45 miles from downtown San Diego, Rincon Reservation Road Brewery is attached to Harrah’s Resort and Casino, cheekily re-labeled in advertisements as Funner, California. Much like this entire region of Southern California, Funner was inhabited by indigenous tribes, such as the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians.
The finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Vegas Revue airs tomorrow on VH1! This iteration of RuPaul’s Drag Race takes place pre-COVID, in the good ol’ days of live performances. For the very first time, Ru handpicked a team of former RPDR contestants for a traditional Las Vegas stage show at the Flamingo Resort. Drag queens are so admirable in their ability to personify a deep part of their imagination. Their queen persona is oftentimes the most authentic version of themselves: gorgeous, honest, inspiring, and unafraid. Start your engines because we’re pairing the cast with their fierce and fizzy counterparts.
