The six-part unscripted series recruits small-town residents across America to participate in a one-night-only drag show. In each episode, drag queens Shangela, Eureka, and Bob the Drag Queen and will inspire and teach their own “drag daughters” to step outside their comfort zone for a night of no-holds-barred, full-on drag.
Season 1, Episode 4: “Farmington, New Mexico”
Debut date: THURSDAY, MAY 14 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
The queens’ journey into the desert to help the residents of Farmington and Shiprock, New Mexico foster unity and open-mindedness. In the process, they enlist: Nate, a gay, indigenous photographer eager to make a deeper connection with his Navajo people; Nicole, a proud lesbian, public defender, and local LGBTQ activist who’s constantly misgendered because she wears “men’s” clothes; and Stacey and Jasmine, a mother-daughter duo processing the traumatic suicide of their beloved daughter and sister DJ, who struggled with not feeling accepted as a lesbian in her community.
Directed by Johnnie Ingram.
Season 1, Episode 5: “Ruston, Louisiana”
Debut date: THURSDAY, MAY 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Bob, Eureka, and Shangela head south to Ruston, Louisiana to shake things up for a small town that’s in need of some change. Among their drag children are Jose, a young gay man tired of censoring himself in order to gain respect and acceptance from others; lifelong Ruston resident Stacy, an ex-firefighter and straight ally dedicated to using his influence to make his LGBTQ community members feel welcome; and Lynn, a tenacious, proud lesbian who – despite the loss of her left arm and leg – is ready to reclaim her independence and dust off her old cowboy boots for her drag king debut.
Directed by Peter LoGreco.
