If you're a fan of the shows like 'Battle of the Seasons,' 'Christmas Queens,' Bianca Del Rio’s 'Not Today Satan,' tour and Katya’s 'Help me I’m Dying,' comedy tour, then you are going to love 'DragWorld.' The convention was created by The MJR Group fans to give fans the opportunity to meet and snap a selfie with their idols.

RuPaul

The excitement of the show is already starting to reach fever-pitch, as the Drag phenomenon just keeps on growing. Only earlier this month the world's most famous Drag Queen, Ru Paul, was the first to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Believe it or not, before his drag ambitions were released, RuPaul was punk in a downtown Atlanta band called 'Wee Wee Pole'. He achieved international fame as a Drag Queen in early 1990s and since then his career has gone from strength to strength. Since 2009, Ru has produced and hosted the award-winning reality TV show 'RuPaul's Drag Race', the program sees several drag queens compete to be selected by RuPaul and a panel of judges to become "America's next drag superstar." The series has already won two Primetime Emmys and series ten aired in the USA to critical acclaim this week.
