RuPaul’s Drag Race season is a magical time of year. Seriously, when else do you look forward to a Monday?
It’s a cultural happening. It deserves to be honored and documented.
Put down your Drag Race keyboards and follow along as we recount the emotional roller coaster that is watching Drag Race, in 23 gifs!
1. When you realize it’s Monday and Drag Race is on later.
2. And you wonder how you’ll make it through the rest of the day.
3. So you organize a viewing party…
4. And everyone shows up with wine.
5. At 8:58 you’re pretty excited.
6. And a little bit drunk on account of the wine.
7. You politely request silence for optimal viewing pleasure.
8. And you take a mental note of those who didn’t comply.
9. “Previously on… RuPaul’s Drag Race…” Sip.
10. When the girls wipe the mirror and remember the fallen, it’s emotional.
11. But the mood quickly shifts when Ru shows up with a challenge.
12. Ru consults the queens and you usually agree whole-heartedly.
13. But when she reads your favorite lady, it hurts like it was you.
14. When the Pit Crew is featured, it’s normal to get distracted.
15. But you have to pull yourself together, because it’s the competition that’s important.
16. Especially when it’s time for the Main Stage!!!
17. This is the part that’s complicated and emotional.
18. Stress eating is common.
19. If your queen is the winner, it’s hard not to brag.
20. But an elimination is inevitable, and two beauties must lip-sync. For. Their. Life.
21. Everyone is elated for the girl who shantays and stays.
22. But it never gets easier to see a ladyboy sashay… away.
23. Good thing Tuesdays means Untucked—which is best watched naked and alone on a laptop. The way God intended.
