Yes hunties… another season of Rupaul’s Drag Race is quickly coming to an end. The show, which started a little later than usual this year with a ton of changes including Untucked available only online, new judges and other thangs… will crown its winner on June 1st at 9pm on LOGO. Even though the finale is taped on the actual network, the real crowning will take place the same night right here in New York City!
With the final five being the strongest the show has had in recent seasons- Pearl, Violet Chachki, Ginger Minj, Kennedy Davenport and Katya as well as top six finalist Trixie Mattel will all be performing that night at Stage 48 (605 West 48th Street) where the winner will be revealed. To add even more fabulousness, the crown will be presented by last year’s winner (and best if I may so myself) New York’s very own Bianca Del Rio. The evening will begin at 8pm with a live viewing of the final episode followed by the official crowning of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” and check presentation. Then the winner and top five drag finalists will perform live, lip-syncing their way back into our hearts.
“It’s your last chance to see all your favorite girls from RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Season Seven together on one stage,” say Brandon Voss of Voss Events, the company producing the event. After the coronation, New York drag legend Lady Bunny will be on hand as the in house DJ and keep the party going all night long.
So whether you are rooting for the fierce fashions of Violet, the campy humor of Katya and Ginger, the little engine that could Pearl or the best Snatch Game impersonator this year Kennedy, chances are you will have a fun time and really find out who will win this race and continue on in the tradition of making this the best damn reality show on television.
