While Tyra is 100% right about how people's white-- or white passing-- faves will get away with way more than the black queens do, it's ... not super relevant to most of her recent drama.

I love Tyra to pieces but she has been on the offensive against other queens since season 2. I love her but she's a complete bitch. The DragCon banning came after she had some choice words about Trixie winning over Shangela (which the sentiment I agree with but w/e) and it started a fight with Phi Phi, then Tati got involved, and Jiggly in some capacity, then she threw out some death threats and a joke about blowing up DragCon so WOW pulled her from the event until she publicly apologizes, which she refuses to do. Most of the Tyra drama is her just being extra in the worst ways, but she'll try to pass it off as just a race thing-- and don't get me wrong, a lot of the hate for Tyra IS a race thing and I have zero doubt that issue combined with nobody ever accepting her win for all of these years is definitely a big part of why she's always super easy to start a fight-- when a lot of it is just Tyra being Tyra. She was a bitch on season 2 and she's a bitch now.

Usually it's fun messy when she starts online drama with other Ru Girls but the past few times has been pretty loving sloppy, to the point where I wish she'd just put the phone down b/c any comedy gold that may come from her fights isn't worth her completely loving ruining what little good will/reputation she has left these days.

She got suspended for telling Trixie fans to JUMP. The suspension bot prob picked up on w/e number of reported tweets she made that had 'die' in them.

e: which, lbr, she has a point about trixie stans being mostly toxic but telling a bunch of probably 12yos to jump off bridges and die isn't a good idea

While I'm at it can we take a brief moment to acknowledge the fact nobody gives Trixie stans poo poo for being toxic and horrible and tearing apart other queens, but when Valentina's stans did the same thing it became a huge ordeal and somehow Val's responsibility? I mean I guess the issue w/ Val's stans was a bit more concentrated and 'in her name' and Trixie/Trixya stans are just lovely while happening to be huge Trixie and/or Katya fans.

I take it this is mostly stuff happening in Twitter and reddit? I don't use any social media besides Instagram so I haven't seen any of this drama.

Either way telling a bunch of queer teenagers to kill themselves isn't cool.

finally caught the latest episode; wasnít Mayhem hailed as a legendary queen before the season started? Iím totally not seeing it, which is an absolute disappointment.

Aquariaís Miami Realness look was excellent, but thereís no drat way she deserved the win over Miz Cracker. 100% producer riggamorris.

now that Dusty is, well, dusted, can Eureka go next? she needs to be gone before the makeover challenge before she sullies some innocent bystander with a goddamn hair loaf.

Yeah she can go. The fight with vix was an ugly mess and she is rapidly souring people on her. At least we got more iconic vixen moments out of it.

This is true but i would have been fine w a Cracker win as well. I was neither gagged nor gooped at all by Aquaria's looks tbh, the luchador was cool but barely made sense. The hand dyed furs were cool but not really that impressive constructionwise, same for the villain look. Kameron and Cracker both had better looks for all three. I'm thinking this edit bodes well for the two of them though.

I also just really kind of hate when young white twink queens get lauded for boybody when they shame others for it all the time.

Kameron's summer look was pretty basic, IMO. It just looked like "rich mom at the poolside" realness, and the hat was awful.

That's fair, I'm a sucker for this aesthetic though. It was giving me Stacy's Mom realness.

And yes a food themed runway (maybe paired with a cooking show main challenge) would be incredible.

People can be a big deal in their drag community without necessarily being the stuff of a worldwide sensation. She has a big family and deep roots and that goes a long way to making a legend in drag. 80% of the folks people put up as all time legendary queens aren't that dazzling in the sorts of things that play well on drag race. Drag is still super local, even if you have some big headed social queens like Aquaria starting to break through too.

Valentina specifically went and said "hey everyone, let's show the other queens how much we love them, post the rose emoji on their social media posts!" Trixie could do much more in calming down her rabid fans but she tends to stay above it all (or just making jokes about it later on a la "yet another dig"). I think activating her stans to do that kind of poo poo is a big part of why people fault Valentina for that ordeal.

Eeeeeeh, to be fair, that's a Really Obvious passive-aggressive power move, not an honest effort to manage and stem harassment. (And that's how a lot of the other queens saw it.) Okay, it could be an honest effort, but it's a really bad one. It's possible that Valentina's social skills are just that bad and her ego is just that big, but the overall effect is the same.

I'm posting this here since the Dragula season 2 thread is dead. I finished season 2 finally and I would kill for a 3 way with Israel and Shaun. I normally don't like my men so lean, but they're both delicious.

And at how the queens treated Israel the last few eps. They were always excited to see him and were so goddamn chipper, while he was all brooding and silent.

That article also mentions a Chilean spinoff I'd never heard of, The Switch Drag Race. Apparently season 2 is airing now, and the contestants include Gia Gunn and Kandy Ho.

There are fansubs for the whole season out iirc, but if WOW is going to be putting their own version out I'm glad I waited to watch

Also afaik The Switch isn't RPDR affiliated, and has been going on for a while. This season that Gia is on was filmed before she came out as trans if I remember right.

e: ok actually it is lmao. so that's two spinoffs now. maybe drag race uk will finally eventually happen??
