RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11: First look at the 15 competing queens

We’re only just getting past the halfway point of All Stars 4 and, without giving us a second to breathe, there’s a new season of Drag Race on the way. Buckle up, henny.

Season ten winner Aquaria teamed up with Olympian Adam Rippon to introduce the fifteen (!) new queens to the world and, well, let’s say that there’s definitely at least one of them you’ll have heard of.

From drag daughters and mothers of Drag Race legends to actual family members of Drag Race Legends, there’s some talented Drag blood in amongst this cast of girls.

First of all, feast your eyes on some visual lewks and get to know what to expect from our season eleven girls.
