The queens from Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars are all in New York at the moment, doing a promo run for the premiere episode (it airs Thursday evening on Logo). Today, Alaska, Alyssa Edwards and Katya joined their sistren in Union Square to serve promotional ice cream from the Big Gay Ice Cream truck.
Before that, though, they happened to run into Aly Raisman, gymnastics powerhouse and earner of six Olympic medals, who’s in town with her teammates for their own set of press rounds after returning from Rio Tuesday. (It’s mind-boggling to imagine what their Wednesday was like, having landed from an international flight and heading directly to Good Morning America and The Tonight Show, and then to an evening at Hamilton.)
Raisman is, according to Logo’s blog NewNowNext, a Drag Race fan, and together with the queens they all represent what is terrific about this dang country. It goes without saying that we’re big Drag Race fans here at Jezebel, too, and having seen a special sneak peek of the premiere last night, we can assure Aly and all of you that shit is about to go seriously [the house] down. The suspense! USA! USA! USA!
