Muévete de aquí, Drag Race. There’s a new class of queens coming to TV!

LGBTQ streaming platform Revry just announced its all-new Spanish language drag competition and we’ve got all the exclusive details here.

Produced in Dallas, Texas and created by first-time television producer Chiru Adams, Drag Latina is created by and for the Spanish-speaking queer community. Hosted by Mexican actress Ninel Conde with pop star Fedro as mentor and judge, the first two episodes will land on all Revry channels, including Revry’s LatinX platform, October 16.

Each week, contestants from a range of Hispanic backgrounds–Cuban, Puerto Rican, Guatemalan, Mexican, Colombian, and more–will show off their hottest runway looks for the judges, battle it out with lipsync competitions, and try to avoid elimination.

The inaugural season’s queens include Afrika Mendiola, Anika Leclere, Amalara Sofia, Chichi Fuera, Leyla Edwards, Mariah Spanic, Sunel Molina, Valeria Sparx, Venus Carangi, and Vicky Chavarria.

“We love to challenge the programming status quo and offer Drag Latina as a challenge to the notion that drag competitions should be restricted by geography, cultures, and language,” Chris Rodriquez, Chief Business Officer and co-founder of Revry, says. “At Revry ‘queer’ is a culture that transcends socio-economic status, race, language, and nationality, its inclusive of everyone.”

Drag Latina will be available to on Revry beginning October 16, with new episodes airing every Sunday until the finale on November 20. Watch the exclusive teaser trailer below.
