Shantay, you stay—at home!
This upcoming weekend was supposed to be when queens descended upon Los Angeles for the annual RuPaul’s DragCon L.A. Sadly, like pretty much everything else, this year’s DragCon has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But don’t put away that tucking tape just yet. World of Wonder has announced that DragCon will happen this weekend, May 2 and 3, but on your screens as the first-ever Digital DragCon.
Digital DragCon will be a “safe-space celebration” featuring your favorite queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race, along with panels, exclusive Q&As, and gag-worthy performances. Some of the queens who will sashay into your living room include Aquaria, Alaska, Mariah Balenciaga, Mayhem Miller, Miz Cracker, Tammie Brown, The Vivienne, Widow Von’Du, and many more.
Not only will you get to kiki with queens from your couch, but there will also be exclusive merch for sale—and you won’t even have to cart it around a convention floor! Sounds like a win-win to us.
The fierce festivities begin Saturday, May 2 at 3pm ET/12pm PT, and Sunday at 3pm ET/12pm PT on World of Wonder’s YouTube channel. See ya there, convention kitties?
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 airs Fridays at 8/7c on VH1.
