How Drag Culture Became Something You Can No Longer Avoid, Featuring Alaska Thunderfuck

RuPaul’s Drag Race, a televised competition that premiered in 2009, gained a devoted cult following and recently announced its 11th season, is arguably the best reality show that straight men aren’t watching yet. For those unfamiliar, the show follows (usually) 11 nationally renowned drag queens in pursuit of the title of next drag superstar, crowned by none other than drag royalty and routine pun-abuser RuPaul. The competition is an eccentric hybrid of Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model, wherein competitors must act, design and perform their way through the week’s strenuous challenges *and* present themed looks down a runway to earn the esteem of the show's panel of judges. The bottom two each week must engage in a lip sync battle, where RuPaul declares a winner and sends the other packing.
