The third season of Dragula hasn’t even aired yet, and it’s making history.
This year, the horror-themed drag competition will feature drag king Landon Cider, meaning this will be the first time the art-form has been represented on reality television in the United States.
In an interview with The Advocate, Cider said of his groundbreaking casting: “I am a proud cis woman, lesbian and drag king.
“AFAB drag performers share the same length of history with queens, fill our communities with incredible artistry, and I am honored to be just one in an infinite sea of talent. Hollow and I are shattering glass ceilings.”
“So grab a shard, AFABs, cause we’re all coming for blood! Forever grateful to the Boulets for sharing a variety of voices on the platform they’ve built for all the queerdos. This season is one not to be missed and it’s just the beginning!”
The third season of Dragula will also feature queens such as Dollya Black, Evah Destruction, Louisianna Purchase, Maddelynn Hatter, Maxi Glamour, Priscilla Chambers, St. Lucia, Violencia Exclamation Point, and Yovska.
Millie Shapiro (Hereditary), Bonnie Aarons (The Nun) Henry Rollins (Black Flag), Rachel True (The Craft), Danielle Harris (Halloween 4), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) and Darren Stein (Jawbreaker) will lend their horror expertise on the panel.
Brad Danks – CEO of OUTtv – said in a statement: “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula is different, dramatic and daring.
“The Boulet Brothers have created a series that is unlike anything viewers have seen before and we are thrilled to be working with them on a new season of the show.”
It will premiere on Amazon Prime on 27 August – watch the trailer below.
