Monday is a drag in New York City and nearly every gay bar in Hell’s Kitchen now hosts a RuPaul’s Drag Race viewing party. We checked out Boxers HK where showbiz spitfire Paige Turner flirted and riled up a crowd of sporty admirers through the episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked. The crowd was cute and the bartenders are always shirtless at this LOGO’s Official Viewing Party in New York City.

We also stopped by The Ritz Bar and Lounge to catch Drag Race contestant Bianca Del Rio holding court with an amazing crowd of boys and “gurls.” Bianca shook hands and entertained the crowd throughout each episode, which was followed by her weekly installment of The Bianca Del Rio Show with music by DJ Xavier afterwards.
