RuPaul is keeping himself busy with the continued success of underground pop culture phenomenon RuPaul’s Drag Race, a new album playfully titled Butch Queen, his judging role on Skin Wars that airs on GSN, and another game show.
Logo needed a new show to fill their empty time slots and RuPaul pitched them the perfect idea. Gay For Play. The only game show designed to make America gay again.
I guess we’re not getting a half hour of Snatch Game anytime soon.
RuPaul will be hosting the gay extravaganza that pits two contestants against each other in order to find out who the best gay is.
The show revolves around specifically gay subject matter. It will be an education for all the young LGBT+ members who might have missed out their gay education. And, it will be a chance for the contestants to show their true colors.
The contestants can be helped by six of the panelists. Who may or may not know what their talking about. Michelle Visage is going to be there and most importantly her breasts will be there. Carson Kresley from Project Runway fame will be there as will Ross Matthews known for his stint on Chelsea Lately along with youtuber Todrick Hall.
They’re all funny and perfectly informed to mislead the contestants at will.
RuPaul has talked about how gay culture is so often appropriated by mainstream culture with no recognition of its roots. The popular Lip Sync Battle was ripped straight from drag culture. There’s a reason that the time always comes for two queens to, “Lip sync… for your life.” It’s an intrinsic part of gay culture and the best part is that the show is cohosted by known homophobe LL Cool J.
Gay For Play is a show that no heterosexual could ever create by themselves. It’s gays taking gay culture and deep throating through the TV screen.
