Angelique King started this petition to RuPaul Charles and

Currently to compete in the new UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race you must be a Cis Man competing as a Drag Queen. This stops Trans people and females competing. It also stops drag kings from competing too- invalidating the worth of drag kings in our community. The UK should not and must not accept this kind of gender discrimination. With Drag Kings, Trans and AFAB (Assigned Female At Birth) Queens across the country snatching crowns I believe it is only right that it’s time they should share the big stage with Drag Race Girls. Don’t get me wrong, it is amazing progress that we have RuPaul’s drag race paving the way for the community in the UK... I deeply respect the legend that is RuPaul, however until the WHOLE drag community is Validated by being allowed to compete, I believe there should be a nationwide boycott of the show.

This petition is for the UK to Boycott RuPauls Drag Race UK Season 1 Until Rupaul Charles makes a formal statement staying Gender will no longer come into play when selecting competitors for RPDR UK Season 2 onwards; therefore allowing any gender of performer to perform on the show as any gender drag they wish. Modern drag grew from ballroom culture which was born from exclusion within our community... so now it is time for drag to officially become all inclusive!
