Overnight Viceland announced they’ve extended The Trixie & Katya Show by 6 episodes! It doesn’t state whether these episodes will be an extension to the first 8 episode season or will form a second season, but either way we’re excited!
The Trixie & Katya Show returns to SBS Viceland on January 25th!
You’ll also be able to catch Trixie the following day on Stan when All Stars 3 premieres!
Then, you can catch both Trixie AND Katya when they come to Australia in 2018. Trixie will be bringing you her one woman show, Accessories Sold Separately before she joins her hilarious sisters on the Comedy Queens tour and you’ll be able to see Katya in July for Dragfest 2018
Today is the day! While same sex marriage was legalised in December, a 30 day notice period to register your marriage prevented the majority of couples from tying the knot.
There were a handful of happy couples who were able to get exemptions from the 30 day waiting period, so these aren’t the first same sex marriages in Australia, but couples wasted no time with some holding their weddings immediately after midnight last night.
If you’d rather catch Trixie and Alaska life sized and in the flesh, they’ll be returning to Australia this year. Trixie will be bringing you a special edition of her one woman show Accessories Sold Separately and will also be joining her hilarious sisters in the Comedy Queens Tour and Alaska will be returning for the second annual Sickening Ball Tour.
As we approach the 10th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Rolling Stone interviewed Ru. They asked if he’s changed his mind on whether drag will ever become mainstream.
We’ve seen so many great queens have thriving careers after appearing on Drag Race, including Trixie and Katya, who now have their own Viceland TV series. You’ve said in the past that drag can never be mainstream: Do you feel that way even after seeing your contestants become bigger pop culture figures?
Everybody has this idea of what “mainstream” is. And when you understand what’s happened politically in this country, you realize how primitive we are as people. Even the things that are happening every day in the paper, you think, “Really?” Humans on this planet like to pretend we’re so advanced, but we are fucking Neanderthals. We are so primitive where the idea that a human being can not make the same amount of money as another human being. There’s fucking slavery still.
So drag becoming mainstream? Honey, please. That’s not going to happen, mainly because the mainstream wants you to choose an identity so they can sell you beer and shampoo. That’s just the way it is. In drag, we are shape-shifters. We don’t hear the rules. We change every day. People need a box to understand how to navigate their lives. They need a grid to go “Oh, I’m here and that’s there.” They’re not fluid in the way of saying “I’m both male, female, black, white. I’m earth. I’m united.” Drag says, “I’m fucking everything.” Not literally fucking everything. I don’t want that to be misunderstood [Laughs].
We’ve all seen Sasha’s tribute to Marlene during Snatch Game in Season 9, now check out her doodle on the google home page to celebrate Marlene’s 116th birthday
Dietrich’s Doodle was illustrated by artist Sasha Steinberg who captured her mid-performance, suited up in her gender-bending tux and top hat. Steinberg, who is also a drag performer under the name Sasha Velour and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race (Season 9), counts Dietrich as a major influence in creating their drag alter ego.
“She was a wild original!” says Velour. “Despite the pressures of the time, she followed her own course, especially in terms of politics and gender. As a drag queen, that’s particularly inspiring to me. Plus, she just had this power to her…in every role she’s mysterious and strong, brilliant. That’s what I aspire to be when I step on the stage.”
You can catch Sasha again when she returns to Australia for Dragfest 2018
