RuPaul's Drag Raceis back, back, back again on Friday, Feb. 28, with 13 new queens competing for the title of America's Next Drag Superstar. And in the first promo for season 12, they're all pledging allegiance to the drag. (It's an election year, goirl, hence the oh-so-subtle patriotic theme.)
"With each new generation of queens, the RuPaul's Drag Race revolution continues to drive culture," Mama Ru says of season 12. “And as more and more new viewers discover the show, the phenomenon continues to open hearts and minds with love, laughter and a whole lotta sass."
Here are the 13 queens who will be competing for the crown this season:
Originally hailing from Brooklyn, Dahlia Sin emerged from the Haus of Aja (of Season 9 and All Stars fame). Now, this look queen lives in L.A., where she wows the West Coast with her urban brand of sexiness.
Heidi comes from Ramseur, a small country town in North Carolina. She playfully says there’s little to do there except count chickens and cows. But her infectious persona is sure to make her a global name very soon.
The Persian princess of drag has arrived. Born in Canada and with Iranian heritage, Jackie Cox now considers the New York cabaret stage her home. She loves to write her own shows and bring them to life.
The first French contestant to compete in RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nicky Doll relocated from Paris to New York City, where she enchants audiences with her European catwalk, high fashions and seductive charm.
Rock M. Sakura’s aesthetic is an amalgamation of anime, manga, and anything pink. With her high-energy death-dropping performance style and dirty sense of humor, this is a queen who defies categorization.
