I Think I've Been Insulted

I received an e-mail yesterday.  The subject: 

NOW CASTING: RuPaul's Drag Race 5!  

It was from RuPaul's Drag Race Casting

My first thought was, Wow! Somebody noticed me!  My jaw literally dropped.

My second thought was, that's drag queens, isn't it?  I'd probably be way out of my element, but this is incredibly flattering!  I starting thinking about whether I could do something like this, if I would be way outclassed by the younger queens, if I'd feel like an outcast because of my unusual sexual orientation (for this group, anyway).  I thought I'd better see the show.

I was excited, to say the least. I read on:

Hi You Can Call Me Meg!    
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT from RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE Casting Team!  Casting for SEASON 5 officially STARTED!  We are on the hunt for undiscovered drag queen talent.

Sounds great!  I was imagining me being a tv on tv!  I couldn't believe they would contact me!  My imagination ran wild but I continued reading:

Would love if you mention the casting in your blog.  I've attached a flyer for you and there is a website for the drag queens to go to for audition information.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Well, now I felt like a schoolgirl.  A schoolgirl who is approached by the football hero who starts talking about the upcoming dance and says "and I wonder if your cute friend Candi has a date yet."

Well, I'm not one to hold a grudge.  So if any of my pretty friends want to try out for this, here's the contact information:

RuPaul's Drag Race Casting- Season 5
World of Wonder Productions 
6650 Hollywood Blvd. Suite 400
Hollywood, CA 90028
Fax:  323.603.6301

But if you think I'm gonna put up their flyer, well, I still have some pride!


  1. I have not had a chance to see the RuPaul show other than an occasional clip. I also think that there was another reality show that took non-T-girls and did weekly competitions.
    Neither would seem to be a fit for us. I would like to see a show such as "Meet the T" but it may not get the ratings.

  2. Maybe "T Time", or "The TV program"

  3. It's all in the interpretation. I do a lot internet shopping--ok! looking. on EBAY there are sellers whom list the word crossdress in there title. There is at least one I've noticed that sell dresses that we would buy. Larger sizes, 3/4 or longer sleeves, length below the knee. In other words the kind of dress you and I would wear to the mall. Then there is the seller who lists stuff that is totally bazaar-- the stuff that only Ru-Paul would like. I think you should enter! show them girls the "True" way a smart crossdersser girl dresses for the world!

  4. Don't take it too personally!
    TV shows thrive on the bizarre and outlandish. You wouldn't fit in. 8-)


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
