Wow! January is moving and groovin its way forward, as the first month of 2013 bounces onto looking for the word from the ground hog come February.

The Drag Races Takes Off

In case you haven't seen it, RuPaul Drag race is not only over the top programming, its one of those shows that I never thought had a chance of having more than one season. However I was seriously wrong as the show moves into none other than season 5 on Logo TV. Not to mention that there will be a watch evening planned for next Monday nights send up at MK's downtown at 307 west 7th street, 7p.m.. ( check you local schedules for times and channels)  RuPaul, the most famous drag queen in the world, according to himself, serves as host, mentor and inspiration of the ultimate drag queen competition.(pictured: Rupaul Charles and his alter ego creation "RuPaul.")

Playing a dual role, RuPaul reigns supreme in all judging and eliminations, while RuPaul, the man, helps guide the contestants as they prepare for each challenge. Contestants include the nation's most outrageous, cutting-edge, talented and stunningly gorgeous drag queens all fighting for the title (and tiara) as top drag queen of the land. Charles has stated that "working with our contestants are top models, designers and American idols all rolled up into one." Each week, through the trials and tribulations of glam, glitter and show-stopping performances, one drag queen is eliminated until reaching the next superstar drag queen of America. If you dare and I dare ya, you've got to get a taste of this drag tour-de-force for yourselves. If you get a chance to check it out, then by all means share you thoughts here first!
