The brilliant @CrystaLubrikunt and @JinkxMonsoon discuss what they think will be different about #DragRaceUK, and what they hope to see when it comes to BBC Three this October! femalefirst.co.uk/tv/jinkx-monso… @dragraceukbbc #dragworld2019.
Ahead of the big ruveal today (August 21), we caught up with RuPaul's Drag Race Season 5 winner, Jinkx Monsoon, at last weekend's (August 17-18) DragWorld convention at Olympia London.
Asked what she thinks will be the main differences between RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and the original American series, Jinkx responded: “The accents! I mean, drag is a universal language.
“I watched Drag Race Thailand without any subtitles or voiceovers or anything; I don’t speak Thai but I do speak drag, so I felt like I understood exactly what was going on, even though I couldn’t speak Thai. I didn’t understand anything they were saying but I knew exactly what was happening.
“So I do think the main difference is gonna be the accents; the rest of it’s gonna be drag as we know it.”
