 Rupauls Drag race on BBC3 is a wrapping-up its debut season in the UK and has proven to be hugely successful in showcasing some of the best drag queens that the UK has to offer, filling venues with much needed enthusiasts at viewing events and personal appearances and most importantly, helping to legitimise and destigmatise this vanguard of LGBTQ+ culture and people. However, it remains the ONLY reality television program in the UK and probably the world that excludes female bodied participants whether assigned at birth or reassigned.

 

The UK drag community and industry is a vibrant and varied landscape consisting of male2female queens, female2female queens (both AFAB and Trans), female2male kings and a plethora of non-binary manifestations all using drag as a means of expressing our hopes, ambitions, fears, threats and desires many facets of the LGBTQ+ experience. The BBC has imported this television program from America with RuPaul’s at the helm complete with his drag misogyny. Other countries around the world who have franchised this television program without RuPaul hosting, have redressed this injustice including New Zealand and Thailand where a drag king and trans queen won the competition respectively.

 

As applications are now being invited for season 2, please sign this petition to get the BBC to take misogyny out of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and give an equal platform for anybody to participate irrespective of gender. “GENTLEMEN start your engines and, may the best woman win” MUST be consigned to the dustbin alongside it’s kin like “No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs”. #Equality #Diversity. Much Tutu Love
