RuPaul's Drag Race is more than just a glitter-and-drama-filled reality TV show. RuPaul's Drag Race is an education tool for straight and cis people who don't live and/or understand our queer lives. RuPaul's Drag Race is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community.
I'll never forget where I was when the first episode of RuPaul's Drag Race aired. It was my freshmen year of college in a dorm room with a dozen other young queer people, all of us active members of our campus' LGBT advocacy group. The show became a lifetime staple for me, and I haven't missed single episode in 8 seasons (plus 2 All-Star seasons).
It's unacceptable that this groundbreaking show isn't made available online for streaming. Every past season (save for season 1) was made available online the day after it aired on TV, bringing this show to young people in a medium that we understand: the internet. It seems as if RuPaul and Logo have sold the rights to Season 9 of Drag Race to VH1, and VH1 refuses to post the episodes on their website.
In an era where LGBTQ+ are being forced, once again, to take our lives and our pride underground, this small oversight in judgment on behalf of Logo and VH1 is indicative of the larger struggle we LGBTQ+ folk will face under Trump and his homophobic, transphobic cronies. Please join me and lend your voice to the cause of bringing this amazing show online for streaming.
