Are you fabulous? Spring is nigh when we get the tune in alerts for VH1 epic series RuPaul’s Drag Race which promises the returning award-winning series will go down in herstory.

In her preview, RuPaul says: “Gentlemen, I have a surprise so big, you’ll never see it coming. You bitches aren’t ready.”

So…What are you waiting for? Drag is white-hot and it’s time to join the Ruvolution.

Do it for your country! Watch as RuPaul has aligned AOC (Bronx representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), plus Jeff Goldblum, Whoopi Goldberg and Nicki Minaj and more who are going to pledge allegiance…to the drag.

This is going to be a fun season for sure.

Who are the queens for season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race?
