RuPaul is expanding the RuPaul’s Drag Race universe!

The Drag Race host and namesake announced RuPaul’s Drag Race Live!, the official Las Vegas residency, during the opening ceremony of DragCon NYC 2019 on Friday (September 6) in New York City.

RuPaul presided over the official ribbon cutting alongside Drag Race judge Michelle Visage, RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! Vegas residency co-director Jamal Sims, and many of the beloved Drag Race and Drag Race Thailand queens featured on the show.

Diane Von Furstenburg and Todrick Hall also participated at the convention, as well as a VIP performance by Trixie Mattel.

The residency will launch in January of 2020 at the Flamingo Hotel, and will feature a rotating cast of seven queens each night including Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Coco Montrese, Derrick Barry, Eureka O’Hara, India Ferrah, Kahanna Montrese, Kameron Michaels, Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls, Shannel and Yvie Oddly.

RuPaul’s DragCon NYC is over, but the love and beauty that filled the Javits Center will stay with me forever. Kudos to all of the gorgeous attendees, the super talented queens, and the spectacular vendors that came together to make magic. Can’t wait for RuPaul’s DragCon UK in January! And a loving reminder from Mama Ru, don’t forget to sashay your way to the polls in 2020. Register to vote now at VOTE.GOV!” RuPaul said after the convention.
