This is 100% the most fierceness that’s ever been combined in one photo! In this gorgeous masterpiece by Mathu Andersen, the Queen of all Queens RuPaul appears with RuPaul’s Drag Race champions BeBe Zahara Benet, Tyra Sanchez, Raja, Sharon Needles, Chad Michaels, Jinkx Monsoon, Bianca Del Rio and Violet Chachki.
What brought these vivacious vixens together? We don’t want to spoil it, but we will say it has to do with the first challenge of Season 8’s premiere episode, debuting March 7 at 9/8c on Logo.
…OMG. Is it March 7 yet?!
Also, RuPaul revealed what went wrong with the shoot exclusively to People magazine:
“The power went out during the shoot,” RuPaul says in the current issue of PEOPLE. “Hollywood had a major power outage that blacked out our studio for several hours.”
But that setback provided an unexpected bonding opportunity for him and the past eight winners of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
“As we were waiting for the power to come back on, the past winners – in full drag and in broad daylight – sat in a circle smoking and swapping war stories,” he explains. “It gave us a chance to stop, look each other in the eyes, and take a moment to realize how far our little show has come. How it has changed all of our lives. We couldn’t have planned a better reunion.”
“The legacy of the show is, was, and will always be the brave and talented queens that have appeared on our show,” he says. “There are no losers on Drag Race. From the very first queen eliminated, Victoria “Porkchop” Parker, to this season’s 100th contestant, our show celebrates a breathtaking array of drag artistry.”
Let’s all gag together one more time at the trailer:
