The new class of Ru Girls were introduced to New York City at the Diamond Horseshoe this week when Brandon Voss teamed up with Logo TV for a special pink carpet laid out for the fourteen queens competing to become America’s next superstar.
The Diamond Horseshoe, located in the basement of the Paramount Hotel, was the popular club and dinner theater brainchild of Oscar Hammerstein II and Broadway legend Billy Rose in the 1940s. The venue is currently home to the popular Queen of the Night immersive and surrealist production. This year’s New York contestants Miss Fame (pictured) and Pearl welcomed season seven hopefuls and trending queens like Mrs. Kasha Davis, Sasha Belle, Trixie Mattel, Violet Chachki, Ginger Minj, Tempest DuJour, Katya, Max, Jaidynn Diore Fierce, Jasmine Masters, Kandy Ho, and Kennedy Davenport for a special party hosted by Drag Race favorite Shangela in midtown Manhattan.
The new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race features Michelle Visage with new judges Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews, and special guest judges Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Alyssa Milano, and Olivia Newton-John (among others).
The news season starts Monday, March 2 at 9pm ET/PT. Fasten your seat belts and may the best woman win.
