These kings wanna get rocked
The peeps behind this show are pretty brilliant — not to mention a kick-ass flyer. Drag kings and local bands make up Mustaches & Music hosted by Christina Love.

Did Asian Stereotypes Offend Or Win On Ru-Paul’s Drag Race?

RECAP: If you haven't been watching, these girls had to start by styling Christmas couture after a snowy photo shoot on a trampoline. Then they had to make a futuristic look to shoot a fake trailer for Drag Queens in Outer Space. Then most recently they had to get leotarded in a drag-tastic workout video and make a runway dress that showed off their best assets. Venus D-Lite, Phoenix, and Mimi Imfurst got the boots each week.
