Catching Up With The Queens of RuPaul's Drag Race

5.2.2011

By Noah Michelson

The third season of RuPaul's Drag Race has come to a close (sob sob sob) and we have a new queen to worship -- the ravishing Raja (pictured below -- hoorah!), who in last week's finale managed to edge out Manila Luzon and Alexis Mateo to win the coveted champion's tiara (as well as $75,000 in cash and a headlining spot on Absolut's RuPaul's Drag Race summer tour).

Last week we got a little face time with the girls from RuPaul's Drag Race season three -- including Raja, Manila, Alexis, as well as fan favorites Shangela and Mimi Imfurst -- to chat about everything from their first drag memories to the politics of drag:

Already feeling cold and alone just thinking about how empty your Monday nights are going to be without the girls? Don't take to the ledge of your apartment building just yet. Tonight LOGO has the season three reunion show, Drag U is headed back on June 20th, and Ru just released her amazing new album Glamazon (we CANNOT get enough of the title track or "Superstar").

For more on RuPaul's Drag Race, check out the show's official website.
