If you’re impatiently excited to see the queens of Stan Original’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under show the world their stuff, then you’re in luck, because they’ve gathered to answer some fun little questions online and satisfy our unquenchable thirst for content.
Drag Race Down Under is probably one of the most anticipated shows coming to Aussie television this year. Any chance to satiate my impatience, I will take it.
The Aussie and Kiwi version of the popular reality competition series is going to be one of the first times that the world stops and watches Australian talent, given the fact that RuPaul’s Drag Race has a fanbase that stretches across the globe. That’s a big fkn deal, especially for the queer and drag communities we have in this country, so I’m excited as hell.
As part of some promo to get us locals excited for the series, the cast of Drag Race Down Under have answered a couple of questions to help us get to know them just a bit better. This is actually the first time we’ve heard any of them talk, and am I shocked that a lot of them are hella Aussie? Absolutely not.
The Drag Race Down Under queens answered questions like “what’s your favourite lip-sync song to perform to”, “do you have a drag family” and “what fan reactions are you excited for,” and the answers are just plain fun.
You can get your healthy dose of the Drag Race Down Under queens right here.
“The world is gonna be so surprised by Aussie and New Zealand drag because we’re quite literally insane!”, says Sydney queen Etcetera Etcetera.
“We’ve been upsidedown for so long the blood’s just rushed to our heads.”
“I wanna become as many memes as possible,” says Geelong queen Art Simone.
“Ploise, meme me now! Meme me now!!”
If you want to have a look at what this talented batch of queens look like outside of their makeup and shiny costumes, you can head to our yarn here that takes a peek at the cast out of drag.
Call me a biased Aussie, but this cast looks like one of the funniest group of queens that have ever been on the show. It’s about time the world embraced the magic of Australian and Kiwi queens.
Stan Original’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will be coming to our screens sometime late this year, and as soon as we have an official date, we’ll be sure to let you know.
