It was only a matter of time before drag queens hit reality TV. To prove the point, RuPaul's Drag Race, an elimination competition hosted by America's favorite female impersonator on MTV's GLBT-centric Logo network, is speeding around the bend tonight with its fifth fantastic episode. The show features a super-heroine makeover of female extreme fighters by the contestants AND special guest Lucy Lawless as a judge. And, as if that weren't enough, Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race Tour will also crash the local weekly viewing party at Tracks, 3500 Walnut Street.
Along with the onscreen hysterics, the party will include drink specials, exclusive footage from the show and a lip-synching contest -- and Denver Drag Race contestant Nina Flowers will also be queen for the day in the house. The flag drops at 7 p.m. and admission is free for the 21-and-over crowd; 18-plus non-drinking partiers will be admitted for a $5 cover. For more information, visit the Tracks website or call 303-863-7326.
