Everyone knows that we Power Animals looooove us some RuPaul and RuPaul’s Drag Race! The internet is all-a-twitter when Drag Race starts up every year, but did you know that RuPaul’s Drag U is just as good of a show? It doesn’t have the same season-long dramarama as a competition show where you get to know the characters over a longer period of time, but what it DOES have is some super moving, emotional journeys for a trio women every week. Also, you get to see even more of your favorite queens! It’s the best.
RuPaul’s team of professors (queens from past seasons of Drag Race) are paired up with women who have lost their confidence and/or their connection with their femininity. It’s a makeover show, plain and simple, but it also has themes of feminine empowerment, self-acceptance, and overcoming the obstacles that get in the way of taking control of your life. Nearly every episode is incredibly moving–I haven’t watched an episode without crying–and completely hilarious.
Check out RuPaul’s Drag U on Logo Mondays at 9pm.
