The drag world is moving a mile a minute these days! If you’re worried you might have missed some of the week’s biggest stories, we understand. That’s where The Week in Drag comes in, your weekly look at the biggest stories unfolding in the drag scene. From shocking moments that unfold in the RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise to what’s going on in your local scene, we’ve got you covered!

Drag queens take to the streets to protest Florida’s legislation 

This week, over a hundred protestors, including some of your favorite queens like Detox, took to the Florida State Capitol to fight back against Ron DeSantis’ pride bans and other imposed anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. Everyone here at Werrrk applauds their efforts and supports anything anti-DeSantis, of course. 

RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars Season 8 comes with a twist

RuPaul and the team at World of Wonder are not holding back when it comes to twists this season. RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars will feature two ways to win this season, and the fans will be able to play a hand in how it all unfolds. There will be a new crown to win, called the “Queen of the Fame Games,” which will be awarded through a fan vote. Only contestants who did not make it to the finale can win the title and the $50,000 cash prize that comes along with it.  I can’t wait to see how this turns out! 

All-Stars is also bringing some amazing guest judges!

We can’t get enough of all this hype around the upcoming All-Stars season, including who is set to appear as guest judges this season. Maude Apatow, Brandon Boyd, Zooey Deschanel, Idina Menzel, Ego Nwodim, JoJo Siwa,  and Bowen Yang are set to join Ru, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews, and TS Madison. This season will be so much fun!
