For those living or visiting Washington, D.C. who love the competition of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you going to get a new, in person version of the competition. Isis Deverreoux’s will be holding a Drag King race at Phase 1 of DuPont.
…starting Jan. 4, Phasepex will inaugurate Isis Deverreoux’s Drag King Race, modeled after RuPaul’s popular Logo series for drag queens. More than just a competition, the goal is to shine a spotlight on drag kings.
”I feel drag queens have really come into their own light in mainstream society,” says Deverreoux, ”[while] drag kings get overlooked because they don’t have as many outlets.” Though full details are still being ironed out, Deverreoux says each monthly show in the Drag Race’s six-month season will turn on a specific challenge. And RuPaul’s official jeweler, Nova Starr’s Fierce Drag Jewels, will be a sponsor for Deverreoux’s series, specifically to design the winning king’s crown.
