The ten drag queens who will be competing for the title of UK’s first Drag Race Superstar have been ru-vealed – and they will be making their first appearance in Manchester this bank holiday weekend.
Handpicked for their huge slaying potential by Mama Ru herself, this eclectic group of queens are the perfect showcase of what the UK drag scene has to offer.
RuPaul says: “Each of the UK queens is so unique, so courageous and so special. I can’t wait for the UK – and the world – to fall in love with them the same way I did.”
The US Series of RuPaul’s Drag Race is a cult global phenomenon and since the announcement of the first UK adaptation of the show there has been frenzied fan speculation about the line-up.
Introducing the ten competing queens: Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Crystal, Cheryl Hole, Divina De Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Sum Ting Wong, Scaredy Kat, The Vivienne, Vinegar Strokes.
Mark Fletcher, CEO of Manchester Pride, comments “We’re thrilled to be part of the exclusive ru-veal with these amazing queens for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. I know there’s been a huge amount of excitement in the run up to the show and being able to host them at this year’s Manchester Pride Festival makes our world class event even more spectacular – this is something that RuPaul fans won’t want to miss out on.”
All ten queens will be at Manchester Pride Live for the Manchester Pride Festival on Saturday 24 August for their first official appearance.
