Drag is on TV and it’s not just RuPaul any more. Yes, there’s a ton of Ru on television, what with all the iterations of RuPaul’s Drag Race as well as Aj and the Queen, but increasingly there’s some non Ru-centric projects. The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula is in its third season, and even Willam has a little something on the way. Next up: Trinity the Tuck.
In Aj and the Queen, Trinity made her appearance as Danielle Dupri, the contestant in the show’s finale pageant that everyone expected to take home the crown. And though the appearance wasn’t large, it was a bit of a branding opportunity, reinforcing Trinity herself as the pageant queen. And now, all of that’s going to be put on display in a new docuseries.
Back in October of 2019, Trinity announced that she bought the Florida Entertainer of the Year Pageant.
“In 2004 I went to National Entertainer of the Year to help my Drag Mother compete,” she wrote. To twitter. “I fell in love. Over that next 10 years I would compete 6 times and finally win in 2014! That system groomed me and helped me become the Entertainer I am today!
“It also introduced me to so many friends I call family still to this day!” she continued. “I have decided to purchase the very preliminary I won that helped me finally win Nationals. Florida Entertainer Of the Year! I want to help this system grow back to the heights it once was!”
And now, the queen has announced a new digital series that will revolve that revamp. The show will air on WOW Presents Plus and a premiere date hasn’t been announced. That said, Trinity has announced that the Foriday competition will occur in April while Entertainer of the Year will take place in Louisville, Kentucky, July 23-26. This year will mark the 30th year anniversary of the national contest which has seen competitors and winners like Nina West, Alyssa Edwards, and Shangela.
Trinity isn’t the only queen to function as producer for a feeder event though; Eureka O’Hara is the producer of the Los Angeles regional.
