    RuPaul Pays Tribute to The Sunset Strip in West Hollywood

    In an Instagram post, dated January 5, 2024, RuPaul Charles, the star and host of RuPaul’s Drag Race reminisced on his love for The Sunset Strip in West Hollywood dating back to his childhood in the 70s.

    “In the ’70s, my family knew how much I loved the brilliant billboards that lined the Sunset Strip,” wrote RuPaul on his official Instagram account. “When we drove up to LA, they would drop me off on the corner of Fairfax and Sunset Boulevard, and for hours, I’d walk up and down the Strip, captivated by the dazzling billboards featuring icons like Cher, Donna Summer, and Diana Ross. I’d pray that one day, l’d be among them. Dreams come true, and although I’ve had billboards here before, each new one feels like the first. DragRace 16 returns tonight, and remember, If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”

    A photo shows RuPaul standing on Sunset Boulevard in front of giant billboard promoting the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 16, which premiered on Friday, January 5, 2024. The billboard is above Pink Dot, located at 8495 Sunset Blvd.

    RuPaul’s Drag Race revealed the cast of 14 new queens for the show’s season 16. Competing for the show’s 16th regular-season crown, a $200,000 prize, and the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar across the two-part premiere is an eclectic mix of drag styles from around the country, including season 13 star and All Stars 8 finalist Kandy Muse’s drag daughter, season 14, who was Miss Congeniality winner Kornbread’s drag sister from the House of Jeté.

    The show’s two-part premiere introduced a new twist, as two groups participate in maxi challenges divided into themes: MTV’s Spring Break and the Queen Choice Awards. Following the talent show performances, the queens will be tasked to Rate-A-Queen and rank each other’s performances. This will determine the tops and bottoms of the challenge. The new episodes are followed by regular episodes of Untucked.
