This Is The Beginning: “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season One Returns To Logo!

Can you believe it’s only been less than five years since RuPaul’s Drag Race sashayed into our lives? It seems like a million years ago that Ru first warned her girls not to f%$ it up.

Ironically RuPaul’s Drag Race Season One hasn’t been available to fans to pore over and worship—until now: Starting September 30, Logo is bringing back the long-lost first season, when the sets were smaller, the queens were fewer, and Ru was barely visible through that 1,000-watt lens.

“Back in the day, if anyone had told me that, in the year 2013, people would be clamoring to watch Season One, I would have insisted on better lighting!” exclaimed RuPaul. “That aside, I’m thrilled to share the trailblazing work of the ‘OG’ queens.  It’s their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent that started a drag revolution.”

So reunite with all nine Season One queens—Akashia, BeBe Zahara Benet, Tammie Brown, Nina Flowers, Rebecca Glasscock, Jade, Ongina, Victoria “Porkchop” Parker and Shannel—and all-star guest judges like Bob Mackie, Michelle Williams, Tori Spelling, Lucy Lawless and Charo. Plus: all new stuff online, like new installments of  “Where the Frock Are they Now?” and weekly “Drag Center” recaps with Pandora Boxx.

Thank Goddess, because we were going through some serious Drag Race withdrawal here!

RuPaul’s Drag Race: The Lost Season Ru-Vealed starts Monday, September 30 at 9 PM ET/PT on Logo TV.
