Last Tuesday was the season finale of my new favorite show “Ru Paul’s Drag Race: All Stars”. A show in which drag queens from around the country compete in various challenges week to week and are subsequently eliminated one by one, leaving the ultimate “queen” standing. This show’s premise is nearly identical to every other reality challenge show, but it is the glitter, the wigs, the lip syncing, the talent, the Cher impersonations and the message that truly separates this campy masterpiece from all the other reality garbage out there.
