Trivia

From the beginning of the show's ninth season, fans in the United Kingdom were finally able to watch episodes around the same time as American audiences, when streaming service Netflix announced that it would air each new episode in the United Kingdom only one day after the American release. Before this, viewers in the United Kingdom had to wait several months before full seasons were added to Netflix because no television broadcaster has aired the series in the country since E4 aired season one in 2009.

Absolutely fabulous
23 April 2019 | by emmarosepollardSee all my reviews

I was introduced to RuPaul's Drag Race late last year and have gone through about 6 seasons in a short space of time (plus series spin offs and spin off films!). It's so addictive, hilarious, bitchy and utterly fabulous. It's such a celebration of diversity, LGBTQ+ communities and just being fabulous in general. The catchphrases used are so catchy ("Okuuuur!") that you will find them creeping into your everyday language. An utter joy to watch and it makes me so happy that we are in a time where this show exists.
