10 Things This Season Of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Taught Us About Gay Racism / Dragaholic on Queerty

The Pit Stop Season 4 Episode 4: Kim Chi Spills the Tea - RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4

This season is arguably the best season in Drag Race herstory. Kim Chi is an accomplished artist, Instagram celebrity, and Drag Innovator. Sure people have their personal preferences but when you commit hand to keyboard it crosses the line from personal aesthetic preferences to a singular racist message. Is there a difference? Yes there are a ton of white porn stars, underwear models, and celebrities vying for our attention.

Despite being from completely different Drag Race seasons originally, these queens met one another off the show and went on to solidify their friendship during All-Stars 3which they were both a part of. Despite the fact that Aja and Valentina have since publicly buried the hatchet, it certainly seems like their relationship never went further than the frenemies status. As a contrast to Aja and Valentina, there was the beautiful friendship among Sasha Velour and Shea Coulee during season 9.

The two remain the best of friends with a chemistry that shines throughout the talk show series. I don't feel the show, producers or host have the best intentions for me.

A clearly bothered but classy RuPaul responded to the Phi Phi rampage by saying that it was up to every contestant to decide what they would do with the Drag Race platform. The pair made it to the Top 3 of the season and ultimately lost the crown to Bob the Drag Queen, but they became extremely close to one another, which is clear from the Instagram and Twitter feeds of the queens containing several pictures and friendship messages for one another.

The queens excelled at recounting how they met and cracking jokes at the expense of one another, proving to be real best friends. Bianca Del Rio is known as one of the most professional drag queens in the entire club circuit, and when it came time to speak her mind about a particular queen who was treating her gigs with disrespect, there was no doubt that Bianca would go all the way.

Following the Bianca Del Rio read, several other stories came out about Valentina acting unprofessional with club owners, being late to gigs, and being disrespectful to fans, which goes in direct contradiction with her title as Miss Congeniality of season 9. However, following their seasons, the couple broke up. Throughout the years, Sharon and Alaska recovered from the breakup wounds and became close friends.

Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls participated in an episode of the Alaska and Sharon Needles dated for many years during Sharon's time on Drag. Over the past decade, reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race has become a cultural phenomenon. “I didn’t know who Naomi was, but immediately became fond of her, and towards the end of the season we were inseparable,” says Kim. Neither Kim nor Naomi ever intended to get into drag.

It is common to see them in pictures together on their social media pages, poking fun at one another like best friends would do. Despite many fans wanting them to be together again, Alaska and Sharon seem to be in a good place regarding their friendship.

Raja responded with her own Facebook post acknowledging that this was a fight she probably could not win because she was a different type of person in comparison to Tyra and did not get involved in these situations.

At DragCon NYCwhich happened a few days after this incident, it was pretty clear that the two queens were still not in speaking terms. Season 5 and season 6 winners Jinkx Monsoon and Bianca Del Rio could not be more opposite from Tyra Sanchez and Raja, because they are the best of friends!

This friendship is an example of the relationships Drag Race is capable of creating when the queens can come together and respect each other. As winners of different seasons, Jinkx Monsoon and Bianca Del Rio have also set the example of how a crowned Drag Race queen can pass the torch to another one when her time is up.

Aja and Milk have been seen working gigs together and being civil, but there is arguably a feeling in the air that, after everything was said and done, the two queens share a frenemies type of relationship.

Aja, in comparison, was featured in all but one episode of the season. Despite having beef with Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez, season 3 winner Raja is actually very close to Raven, who placed second on season 2.

M.U.G. with Kim Chi & Naomi Smalls - 20 min challenge on Hollywood Blvd

Bob is one of the most talented queens of any season, and she dominated so many challenges, but she's not a look queen. Same with queens like Jinkx in her original season. That's not to say she doesn't know fashion, but with Bob the main focus is on her performance, her ability to interact with an audience, ad-libbing, comic timing and being a live performer, but with a queen like Kim Chi the focus is on the look, and the art behind it so she is living art.

Same with queens like Miss Fame or Violet and Acid. I don't think there was a look of Bob's I didn't enjoy on some level and there is always something unique or inventive even behind the less successful with the fanbase looks I thought it was awesome that her robot outfit cost 25 dollars, most drag queens don't have hundreds to splash on gownsbut from a fashion and design point of view, it is her weak point: some of her outfits were much weaker then the other queens, and even though the dress she made for the Book Ball was beautiful, it didn't meet the challenge as it had no paper in it.

But even so, she still would have been in the bottom for that look because Kimmy dominated that challenge, and Naomi and Chi Chi's final looks and previous two looks were so much stronger then Bob's.

I don't see the point in being hung up on Bob's look anyway. She has something a lot of queens do not have and that's way more important then if she can or even wants to rock a six hundred dollar gown.

If she can, well sweet, I hope she does use the fifty dollars that's left after tax to buy herself something a bit more upmarket.

One of Bob's main strengths as a queen is her versatility outside of the bedroom. Bob is a queen where she focuses on what's more inside the package then the packaging. The presentation is secondary to the performance, and that's just who Bob is. Even in her finale look, Naomi and Kim's final looks were so much more elaborate and polished and co-ordinated then Bob's. That's fine because those two are queens were the look is of much greater importance to them then Bob, and have less of a focus on performance then she does: Kim for example had to be carried through pretty much all the acting and comedy challenges.

They are even less her forte then fashion is for Bob.

Kim Chi (born August 8, ) is the stage name of Sang-Young Shin (Korean: ???), a South Eventually, Kim Chi made it to the top three along with Naomi Smalls, but lost the title to Bob the Drag Queen. made for her called "Fat, Fem, & Asian", which was a commentary on negative stereotypes in the gay dating world.

Far more. Bob can rock a look that is unique to her if lacking in overall polish.

And that's what I like about her. As someone who grew up poor and spent way too much time with spoiled rich kids, Bob speaks to the bargain hunter in me and that my upbringing has given me a great sense of thrift. I agree that Bob isn't a look queen in that her main focus isn't on the look, but that wasn't my point. Sometimes people isolate Bob's performing abilities as her only talent, when she's actually more than competent at hair, makeup, and style.

True, she's not a makeup artist to the caliber of Acid, Fame, or Kim, but the majority of people aren't. Bob's aesthetic for lack of a better word gets denigrated when in fact she's very polished and stylish, as well as having a style that's distinctive to her. Alaska's legs are so long they're her entire body cus youknow snakemoji.

Our girl Alaska has been medused by the dark side of drag. Her sweetness is gor-gone. She should change her name to Lamia.

Welcome to the First Order, bicth. On wednesdays, we wear snake print. I'd hit the non-cartoon version of that. I hope none of you girls are dating him because I'd hate to fuck him behind your backs Get in line, gurl. You'll have to see him with 'em hands first.

Now there's nothing wrong with rooting for Naomi Smalls or Kim Chi or . much standard fare in any gay setting, from bars to dating websites. LA Comedy Live is proud to announce RuPaul's Drag Race - Kim Chi + Naomi Smalls to perform in Singapore!. Kim Chi is the stage name of Sang-Young Shin (???), a drag queen, performer , makeup artist and one of the Season 8 runner-ups of "RuPaul's Date of Birth "Naomi Smalls, your wardrobe reminds me of a legendary Drag Race queen.

I find a lot of ABCD to be about promoting themselves and each other although it's clear they all have a true friendship behind it. I just love Bob, Naomi and Kimchi's casual piss taking of each other and chilled out vibes. No shade but yeah at least it's not fake, I feel like the 4 of them love each other and really all do just think they're that great.

ABCD is fake? They are most definitely tight with each other, it seems. It's kind of the new, hot, fresh friendship. I know, my wording might've been weird but that's what I meant. Like even though ABCD love promoting each other, I think they do it because they genuinely love what one another does. Why don't you come up and see me with them penis fingers sometime? Because I said the truth? Her legs are objectively ugly and unattractive. Deal with it.
