Drag Race

Meet the Hot Pit Crew for “Drag Race Thailand”

The trailer is out for Thailand’s version of RuPaul’s Drag Race (and some blessed soul translated it). Besides seeing some of the queens who will entertain and introduce viewers to the world of drag, there was also a flash of something more.

We now know the faces and names of three Drag Race Thailand Pit Crew members, and we are more than happy to share some of them with all of you.

While it seems that there will be eight Pit Crew boys in the show (and each episode will feature one to three of those boy), we’ve sadly only been introduced to the three below.

But hey, these three are stunners in their own right. No disappointment here.

Drag Race's Miss Peppermint Makes History As First Transfemale Lead On Broadway

Miss Peppermint is making history on Broadway.

The runner-up for the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race will not only be acting on Broadway, but she’ll be in a leading role. But that’s not all. Miss Peppermint will be the first transwoman in a leading role on Broadway.

Peppermint came out as trans while taking part in Drag Race.

She shared her gender identity on the show while she talked about the topic of gender. Then, she later came out to the public after the show’s production had wrapped.

“It was actually though my drag that I realized my transness,” she explained. “I’m trans. I’m a trans woman.”

Now, it’s been announced that she will be starring in a new show called Head Over Heels. The musical, described as “Elizabethan love story turned on its head,” will feature songs from the Go-Go’s and a few songs from Belinda Carlisle’s solo career.

On top of that, the show will be produced by Gwyneth Paltrow and directed by Michael Mayer (of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, American Idiot, and Spring Awakening).

In addition, Miss Peppermint will be joined on stage by Rachel York (Disaster!), Jeremy Kushnier (Cirque Du Soleil Paramour), Alexandra Socha (Spring Awakening) and Ricardo Zayas (Hamilton).

Congratulations to Miss Peppermint!

Will 'Drag Race Thailand' Host Follow RuPaul's Legacy?

We just showed you some behind-the-scenes photos of Thailand’s upcoming production of Drag Race Thailand. But since the Kantana Group Public Co. Ltd purchased the rights to produce their own version of RuPaul’s Drag Race, a lot more has been kept a secret to drag community in Thailand. Based on the photos posted by Piyarat Kaljareuk, VP of Kantana Group, the company will attempt to imitate many of the popular elements of the American reality show—in hopes that it is just as successful.

But one of the biggest keys to the show’s success will be in the host they choose. Is it possible that they have finally found someone who could fill RuPaul’s Thai shoes?

Mama has arrived!

The person who will be in charge of mentoring the drag contestants is Art-Arya, an acclaimed Thai stylist who has studied fashion design in Paris and has worked for fashion house LANVIN.

 

Working in fashion for over 30 years, Art-Arya, she is now the creative director of the Thai brand, THEATRE. She also continues her passion for fashion by teaching fashion and design.

She can serve the looks--but will she have what it takes to coach the hopeful drag race contestants? Will she have a signature laugh, key catch phrases like “Don’t fuck it up” “Hey Kitty Girl” and “She Done Already Had Herses”?

Drag Race Thailand is coming soon to LINE TV.

Behind the Scenes of 'Drag Race Thailand'

We found out last year that Thailand’s Kantana Group Public Co. Ltd purchased the rights to produce its own version of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The third country to ‘start its engines’ after U.K. and Germany, we’ve been waiting to hear more about how Thailand would bring it to runway.

Piyarat Kaljareuk, Vice President of Kantana Group has just shared some behind-the-scenes photos and videos of what looks like a familiar set where some queens will inevitably be some lip-syncing for their lives.

And with POV shots like this—is it possible that there will be an Untucked version as well?

Kantana Group is one of the largest production companies in Thailand, producing many of the country’s most popular shows. Thailand’s version of Drag Race Thailand will be shown on LineTV and will elevate Thailand’s drag community. Now don’t f*ck it up!

Will RuPaul or Michelle Visage be invited to be guest judges?
