Drag artists and performers from all corners of the world and several eras of RuPaul’s Drag Race are set to unite for a one-of-a-kind series, Bring Back My Girls.
The special drag extravaganza is going to be filmed at DragCon LA 2022 and will feature panels of queens hosted by none other than Drag Race guest judge and Trans trailblazer, TS Madison.
Bring Back My Girls will be made up of seven episodes and cast members from the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Holland editions of Drag Race, as well as season 12 stars of the original US series, Deadline reports.

And in other Drag Race news, during the month of May, season eight star and runner up, Kim Chi, is donating 10% of the profits from her beauty brand to charity in honour of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month.
Proceeds from Kim Chi Chic Beauty will go to the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) organisation to help “build collective power with AAPI women and to gain full agency over their lives, their families, and their communities.”
