Once upon a time, he was a little black girl from the Brewster projects of Detroit, Mich. He was spotted by an Ebony fashion-fair talent scout and his modeling career took off!
Now he wants to do the same for you, if you happen to be 21 years old and a drag queen. But instead of a modeling career, you’d do RuPaul one better by being on TV!
It seems the ‘memba her drag-pop-star RuPaul has a new reality TV show on Logo, "RuPaul’s Drag Race." We presume it’s a reality show, but we don’t know much more than that. The goal of the show, so says this news account, is to find "America’s next superstar drag queen."
Are there still superstar drag queens? Or didn’t Patrick Swayze and Dame Edna kind of kill the genre for mass-consumption purposes? Anyway, here’s the Web site where you can vote, and the clock is ticking, girls: only 39 more days to vote!
