PHOTOS: 60 fierce & fabulous lewks that made us gawk at DragCon

Just a quick snip: The Vivienne, RuPaul and Trinity The Tuck do the honors.

“The family is back together again, and we’re looking good,” RuPaul told the crowd while cutting a pink ribbon to open the DragCon convention floor. “This is really a labor of love for us, and we’ve been gone for a few years now, but we are back, back, back, again.”

Following a two-year, in-person hiatus due to the pandemic, RuPaul’s DragCon famously and fabulously returned to Los Angeles last weekend with all the flair, style, and fierceness you’d expect.

Drag queens and fans alike took to the pink carpet to show off their carefully crafted outfits for the convention.

According to RuPaul’s production company, World of Wonder, more than 50,000 fans and 150 drag queens attended the three-day convention, which was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. And with five seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race airing since the last DragCon event in 2019, there were plenty of new “Ru Girls” for fans to meet and gawk over. That included stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race seasons 12, 13, and All Stars 6 and some international queens who appeared on the U.K. versions of the show. 

RuPaul’s DragCon empire

RuPaul launched the family-friendly event in 2015 as a way to thank Drag Race fans and give them the opportunity to meet the stars of the hit television show. 

This year, the convention floor was packed with LGBTQ+ vendors and exhibitors, and booths offering giveaways. But the main attraction was the queens themselves. And they came dressed to impress. The drag stars were all dolled up in brightly colored gowns, sparkling sequin dresses, feathers, boas and so much more as they mingled with attendees and had their photos snapped with eager fans.
