The casting call for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 3 has already closed, and with filming likely to begin some time soon, I thought I’d try offering my opinion on who I believe should be on the BBC Three drag reality show. Last time I did this I managed to get 4 of the biggest contenders, so fingers crossed I can beat it this time!
It takes many different ingredients to make a fantastic RuPaul’s Drag Race UK cake – singers, dancers, comedians, sewers, etc. I’ve picked the yummiest, scrummiest treats for my ultimate Drag Race UK Season 3 recipe, so if these queens don’t put you into a diabetic coma, I don’t know what will!
If you are a burgeoning drag king, queen or adjacent, it’s very likely that at some point you want to start getting paid for it. Drag ain’t cheap sis, and unless you’re getting onto RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, it’s very unlikely that it’s going to pay for itself unless you get yourself a regular performance gig.
That being said, getting booked is a lot easier said than done. So if you’re not sure where to start, here’s my handy guide for how to get booked regularly as a drag performer.
It’s been in discussions for ages (remember Jonathan Ross talking about it back in 2014?) but it seems RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is finally happening, coming to BBC Three in 2019. Of course, while this is all very exciting, the main question is “which queens are going to be on season one?”.
Who do you think made it to the list?
