RuPaul as a character on

RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4 is still a month away from premiering, and the RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular won’t air until December 7. But Mama Ru will strut her stuff on the small screen this weekend as she makes her animated debut on The Simpsons — and we have a first look.

The decades-running show announced back in May that RuPaul and Raja would appear on an upcoming episode, and now its just days away from airing.

Fox released this preview clip, giving us a first look at Queen Chente, Ru’s character.

We also get a sense of the plot — Homer will become Springfield’s newest up-and-coming drag superstar.


Last month, Raja shared what her character will look like, writing “I’ll never forget crying my eyes out, as rain came pouring down on the sidewalk outside the recording studio. Tears of joy. The Simpsons was a huge part of my childhood, being asked to be on an episode was surreal and mind blowing, to say the least”:

The episode will air this Sunday, November 18, on Fox.
