Did you know that MTV has a channel just for the Gay/Lesbian/Transgender community? No? Yeah, neither did I. Well, they do, and they call it Logo. You can visit their website and see their full repertoire of TV shows and Films.
The big news for MTV and Logo is that they’ve got a new reality show, and it stars the most famous drag queen of our generation…RuPaul. Yup, he/she is still around, and apparently, still fabulous. Yahoo News reports that casting is still open, and that the “ hourlong, six-episode series is expected to debut on Logo's digital cable channel early next year.”
The show is called RuPaul’s Drag Race, and if you head on over to the show’s website, you can still vote on which queens will get a chance to compete.
