Stars From RuPaul’s Drag Race Brighten The Season With Christmas Queens Show @ Brighton Dome

"I'm excited to spread cheers and queers throughout Europe this season," says Asia O'Hara, ahead of Christmas Queens visit to Brighton, next month.

"I'm feeling jolly all over just thinking about it," adds fellow Christmas Queen star, Kameron Michaels. 

"You won't find this unique combination of talent, production and fierce holiday fashion with any other Christmas show out there."

Christmas Queens started out as a Christmas album featuring classic covers and original songs by several of the contestants and fan favorites from the TV series RuPaul's Drag Race.

In support of the music, the artists embark on The Christmas Queens Tour, which features them performing tracks from the three albums. 


RuPaul's Drag Race is an American reality competition television series which documents RuPaul in the search for "America's next drag superstar."

RuPaul plays the role of host, mentor, and head judge for this series, as contestants are given different challenges each week.  


The title of the show is a play on drag queen and drag racing, and the title sequence and song "Drag Race" both have a drag-racing theme. 

Producer Brandon Voss enthuses. "We're preparing over the top production numbers that put a unique spin on many of the world's favorite holiday carols from Let It Snow to We Three Queens. Fans of RuPaul's Drag Race will not want to miss this!"
