THE newly-announced contestants for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 have finally been revealed after months of speculation among fans.
While the season — featuring 12 drag queens vying to be crowned “America’s Drag Superstar” — actually wrapped up filming before October last year, the first episode won’t air until March 7.
Without further ado we present to you the next batch of RuPaul’s Drag Race queens.
