It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Not Christmas, dummy, although I do love me some festive Yuletide cheer. No, I’m talking about the reveal of RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Season 6 contestants! Although the new season doesn’t premiere until February 2014, Logo has revealed this year’s queens over the past few days via various social media platforms and today released each contestant’s short “Meet the Queens” video. I’ve gotta say, this is a really versatile bunch, a mixed bag of seasoned professionals and drag newcomers whose styles, for the most part, transcend the easy pageant/camp divisions of previous cycles. More than anything else, that’s what I’m looking forward to most this season: seeing Drag Race showcase the broad spectrum of drag performance as it hasn’t done before. (Also, this season’s queens are really cute boys, too!)
You can check out all the Season 6 queens on the official RuPaul’s Drag Race website, but here’s a quick rundown of some of my expectations and predictions for the season:
Somewhere in the world, there’s a small town where the citizens adore their perfectly symmetrical civil servants (who look a lot like Heidi Klum) and sculpt beautiful statues made of goat cheese in their honor. Unfortunately for Leslie Knope, that town is in Denmark and not Indiana. In Pawnee, serving your community means scraping slime off of highway underpasses, driving (some, not all) slugs away from mean old ladies’ houses, and having your constituents hate you for everything you’ve done to make your hometown a cleaner, healthier, more livable place.
What a bunch of pee-pee heads.
