The producers behind the wildly popular “RuPaul's Drag Race” are turning to fans to help fill the show's roster for its fifth season.
Aspiring drag superstars from across the country have been invited to upload an audition video to the show's official Facebook page between now and April 18. Fans of the show will then be given the opportunity to vote for their favorites from the April 18 to May 2.
The top vote-getter will join the cast for season five, which Logo says is slated to air in early 2013.
MTV will air an hour-long documentary tomorrow night, Feb. 21, on the “It Gets Better Project” at 11 p.m. The documentary will also be simultaneously broadcast on Logo.
"The lives of these three young people will resonate with millions of teens—gay and straight—who are being bullied for simply being themselves,” said project founder Dan Savage in an official statement. "It's so important they know that things get better and that living openly and honestly and being who you are makes it better. They have so many great moments ahead of them and they will do things they never thought possible—so long as they keep fighting, stay positive, and stay with us."
Created by columnist Savage and his partner Terry Miller in Sept. 2010 after a rash of teenage suicides of LGBT youth because of bullying, the “It Gets Better Project” has grown to now feature thousands of videotaped personal stories from LGBT people reminding bullied youth that they are not alone in their struggles.
“There are just so many questions I have about this show,” I tell Preppy as we sit on the sofa, absorbing the latest episode of “The A-List: New York.” I can’t really say any of us are watching it, as Preppy and I are both catching up on work, and Daisy has her red ball, which really demands her full attention.
“The A-List: New York” is simply the thing that happens after “Rupaul’s Drag U,” in much the same way as poots happen after eating beans. It’s mildly offensive, but you accept it as part of the process.
“You’re not going to ruin this for me, Topher,” says Preppy. “The A-List is not supposed to inspire questions. Just let it go.”
Attention Atlanta queens, you could be a part of Logo's smash hit competition show “RuPaul's Drag Race.” The show is holding open casting calls to fill its roster for its fourth season on the air.
Atlanta drag personalities Nicole Paige Brooks and Sonique contested the second season, and Phoenix and Mariah were selected for season three. Unfortunately, no Atlanta-based queen has made too far into the competition. But you can be the one to change that!
All you need to do is fill out a simple (albeit long) application, record a short video highlighting your drag skills and include two photos (one of you in drag and one out of drag).
