The terminally delightful BenDeLaCreme, from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6, was in attendance last Thursday night at Neighbours Nightclub for Seattle Pride as 42 drag queens, and one drag king, set a new world record for the largest drag show.
In a statement released to the Huffington Post, Adam McRoberts, the Communications Director for Seattle Pride, said, “Seattle has so many reasons to celebrate Pride this year, and we’re thrilled that we get to break a Guinness World Record in recognition of our 40th anniversary. We know Seattle has one of the biggest and best drag queen communities in the country, so bringing everyone together for this historic event just made perfect sense.”

In the mean time, here’s a sickening video and a collection of photos from the event:
