    So is Drag Race officially a straight white teenage girl thing ?

    I make no qualms that I'm being a both when I say this; why only white girls were interviewed for this segment? There was literally one 1 pair of men for this segment.

    Feel like dragcon is designed for people who shouldn't necessarily be at a gay bar. And basically vice versa lol.

    LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA MONEY? I dream of living a life where £210 is a little bit of extra money.

    I live in New York, but never have gone to drag con. VIP is too expensive and I don't want to waste my whole day seeing my favorite queens for a couple of minutes. Idk, I don't think it's worth it unless you're a rich white cisgender woman 🙄

    • 3rza Hatsune

      @Antonia You're right, I've never gone to dragcon so Idk how it is in terms of diversity. But it would've been more comforting to see more POC or something at least to get me more interested.

      @3rza Hatsune yeah i totally agree with you in that point, but just because they didnt Show Black / trans people it doesnt mean its not Worth it for them to go to drag con

    • 3rza Hatsune

      @Antonia Well the video definitely showed a diverse group of people who had VIP, I'm just saying

    Disgusting!! Paying a good amount of money to be treated like a peasant just for a signed cheap piece of cardboard? No maaaam! If I'm in town I'll get the cheapest ticket and just to buy in the custom accessories booths, meeting the queens there is just a waist of time and money. I would highly suggest better to meet the queens in an event m&g.

      It's not worth it ... I got a Saturday pass and got more with what they did.

    I find it really weird that all the drag con ads I see always feature a lot of cis white women and nobody else.

      Thank 👏 You👏. Sure, it's great to see that everyone is welcoming but damn, they couldn't find one minority or one man to interview? They had one sitting and watching the show... They couldn't interview him? They only had 1 pair of men....

      Bruce Costella But this is men in wigs who grab for cash I don’t think this is helping anyone it’s more like a comic con

    • Bruce Costella

      @Czbny Czbny when it's an event that is a celebration of queer performance it just sours me a little when there isn't more representation from queer persons, esp. qpoc.

    I love how Drag Race has blown up... and appreciate our Allies, but rich straight white girls is what I mostly see in this video

    • alaska Delano

      nacnah m can we not assume every girl in a queer space is straight. You know queer women exist omg shocker

    • A

      @nacnah m the entrance fee alone and location cuts out a lot of people already. Then add a few hundred extra dollars you dont have a broad demographic at all. You shouldnt hate on these people who can afford it though or make bad associations with white girls with a bit of money.

    • Czbny Czbny
      Czbny Czbny 2 months ago

      I don’t see what’s bad about that tbh

      Mia, F. You're absolutely right, I shouldn't make that judgment on the girls not knowing...but it just seems like ppl that actually been a fan and supporters of the show don't have the money to by-pass and be able to see their faves... and it's not the girls fault, DragCon is in the business of making money... I just feel bad for the kids who don't have the resources or funds to be able to see their faves

    • Mia F.

      we don't know if they're all straight / cishet, but yeah this video isn't the best at displaying how diverse the rpdr fandom (and enjoyers of drag in general!) really is...

    It's amazing how expensive DragCon is for the fans yet the queens still don't get paid enough money. Where is the money going??

    • Florence Flowers
      Florence Flowers 2 months ago +5

      @Aymac unt Even with the merch, unless they're an insanely popular queen like Trixie, Alaska, Brooke, etc. They still lose money overall.

      Aymac unt 2 months ago +2

      Queens have their own merch so they don't have to be paid that big.

      Not all the queens are there on Friday and the only one that had a VIP line was Vanjie so its very misleading
