While season 12 seems to be literally aired just yesterday, RuPaul Draw Race back again! Of the many queens for the season, several are from New York City.
The first screening of season 13 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ aired on Friday night
RuPaul Draw Race has started with a bang this week and has a new experimental format for the first few events. All thirteen entered the stage in pairs (and one group of three) for immediate lip-syncs. Six queens won while seven won the “Porkchop,” referring to Victoria “Porkchop” Parker, the first queen to be eliminated from the show.
However, they recognized that it was not complete. The two groups play separately before the whole group is brought back together. Given how difficult this season is, nothing tells what’s going to go down in the classroom and on the main stage.
Four New York City queens are competing this season, including Tina Burner and Olivia Lux
Tina Burner is a New York City sled legend and was frequently mentioned during her first show on the show. She’s a comedy and camp queen and has already been compared to Nina West, though it looks like she may have a high hand on the queen of season 11 when it comes to lip biting. Raised in Upstate New York, she is the oldest queen in the competition, cementing her “seasonal” status. Burner credits New York City for sharpening his skill. “New York City is like all the competitions,” she told amNewYork. “I had to fight to be at the top of my game. I spent every dollar I had to prepare to become a draw queen. I used to live gig to gig… I prepared, to be a New Yorker. ”
Olivia Lux is Burner’s antithesis. She’s only been slowing down for about two years but don’t let her newbie status fool you. Lux seems to be taking the pack full and ousted Rosé, a New York sluggish legend during their lip-sync. Lux loves to experience live slapping and often plays the piano during her performances.
In an interview with Conclusion, Lux spoke about the experience of being ready to move on Drag race during the pandemic.
“It was very sad before I got the call [to compete on Drag Race] even dragged, ”she said. “I feel like a lot of artists can relate to the truth [doing] synchronization displays living room bills. So I think the biggest change for me is being able to put everything together, put it out and do it. [the show] when I wasn’t even in that mind of, “Oh my gosh, this is even possible.”
Kandy Muse and Rosé are also competing on season 13
Kandy Muse is already a Drag race image. Going into the first scene, she was the second queen to follow the most, just behind the famous artist Gottmik. Muse is a former member of Aja House and is one of Aja (RuPaul Draw Race season 9, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 3) girls drag. Her sister, Dahlia Sin, competed on season 12 and was the first out. Muse talked about how safe the set was, especially during COVID.
“I think this is the safest set I’ve ever been on,” she told Decider. “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such a safe set, in a way Drag race is. I had a good time. Being one of the first shows filmed during COVID is as memorable as it is, so – images! ”
Last but not least, Rosé, who was famous for being his sister Drag race Jan’s alumna and member of their daughter group is Stephanie’s Child, New York City’s fourth queen in the tournament.
She was first an actor before she actually became a drawing queen. “I wasn’t animated by the whole scene, and I felt that my artist was really struggling because I wanted things to do with me and my personality. to express, ”she told NewYork. “I really started to get into my queerness about four years ago … it was dragged into my life at the right time. ”
