To kick off DragCon NYC, some of the RuPaul’s Drag Race queens threw shade at New York’s Beacon Theatre during the Haters Roast.
Murray & Peter Present Haters Roast – The Shady Tour took place on the evening of 8 September. Jinkx Monsoon, Ginger Minj, Trixie Mattel, Thorgy Thor, Phi Phi O’Hara, Kim Chi, and Darienne Lake took turns roasting each other.
Latrice Royale was also meant to be in the lineup, but because of the weather conditions in the southern part of the U.S, she was unable to fly in. She did, however, FaceTime in at the end to say hi.
Some other RPDR queens were in the audience, too. Jiggly Caliente (who ended up being invited on stage by Ginger Minj to fill Latrice’s spot), Ivy Winters, Naomi Smalls, and Kasha Davis all attended the show.
Unlike typical shows where you’re asked to turn off your phone and not take pictures or videos, this show encouraged it. Check out some of the shade thrown below.
