About This Book

Everything you need to know about cult television show RuPaul's Drag Race - from seasons 1 to 9, including All Stars. 
 
Bursting onto the scene over two decades ago (with smash hit 'Supermodel of the World') RuPaul has been confounding critics to clear her own path over the many years since. Most recently, RuPaul has again become an unlikely pop-cultural icon by producing and starring in RuPaul's Drag Race - a reality television series that judges the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the competing drag queens. Over nine seasons and numerous spin-off series (including All Stars and RuPaul's Drag U), RuPaul's Drag Race has become a cult global hit - fans know the catchphrases, the personalities, the cat fights. 
 
The Essential Fan Guide to RuPaul's Drag Race celebrates all the queens (all 100+) that have graced the stage, as well as memorable Drag terms, inspiring quotes from RuPaul and so many facts and figures that even a hardcore RuPaul fan will learn a thing or two. This is one for the true fans.

About the Author

John Davis is an Australian nightclub DJ and event promoter with a crazed fanaticism for RuPaul’s Drag Race. Constantly working with drag royalty, he has learned the true importance of these performers to mainstream culture as well as to queer history. John can easily recite the chronological order of elimination of every Drag Race contestant while debating the importance of a winner’s sewing skills over comedic ability. 

Libby VanderPloeg is a Brooklyn-based illustrator. Her clients include The Wall Street JournalWashington Post and The Boston Globe.
