Alright Mary: All Things RuPaul's Drag Race

Alright Mary is two parts Drag Race viewing party, one part queer studies lecture and a healthy dose of obscure pop culture references, all wrapped in a nuanced layer of dad jokes and pun-offs served weekly with a side of piping-hot tea.

Episode 392.5: In Memory of Darcelle XV

Trailblazing Portland drag legend Darcelle XV passed away on March 23rd at the age of 92 after a Guinness World Record making career in drag. We were beyond fortunate to interview Darcelle (aka Walter Cole) back in 2019, along with Anthony Hudson aka Carla Rossi (and co-host of Gaylords of Darkness podcast), as part of the Listen Up Podcast festival...



Episode 392: Drag Race S15 Ep 13: Teacher Makeovers

Our Teachers of Drag Race fantasy comes true with this week’s makeover challenge. We could talk all day about Sasha Colby in a parent teacher conference with America’s next Tamisha Iman, to say nothing of Intro to Art queen Miss Tang and Mistress cutting up after class. But who we have the most to talk about this episode is actually Loosey, including everything we didn’t see in the show. (Shoutout to the Roscoe’s Viewing Party!) Plus: a formative memory about Mrs...



Episode 391: Drag Race S15 Ep 12: Wigless - The Rusical!

Art imitates life this week as the Top 6 mounts this season's polished and prophetic Rusical "Wigloose"! We have much to say about the unfortunate inspiration for the challenge but we also have a lot of love for Salina EsTitties, even if we can't agree on those gloves. We get some mini therapy sessions with workroom Ru while Loosey's breaking point proves to be less entertaining than Mistress thinks and morphs into one of the more unfortunate edits of the series...



Episode 390: Drag Race S15 Ep 11: Two Queens, One Joke

It was really seven queens and about three good jokes in this week’s standup comedy challenge, but let’s be honest, the real star of the episode is that lip sync. We also get Sasha Colby (Taaaassha Gooollllby) quoting an Emmy winning icon, No More Mrs...



Episode 389: Drag Race S15 Ep 10: 50/50's Most Gagworthy Stars

It’s a lesson in active listening this week as the queens channel their inner Barbara Walters (or, Hugh Downs in a wig) for the C-List celebrity chat show 50/50 (or 33/33/33 in some cases). Love Connie drives away with our hearts, and Luxx more than keeps up. Frankie Grande and Loosey just can’t stop quoting “Aliens,” Mistress misses her first beat all season, and Sasha tosses both her cards and Charo’s salad...



Episode 388: Drag Race S15 Ep 9: The Crystal Ball (Episode 200)

It’s not just any old ball this week, it’s the Reference Ball! Or, no, the Crystal Ball. Either way it’s the 200th episode of Drag Race! If you like queens quoting queens, you and Luxx are in for a treat this week, as the mini-challenge, the producer prompted workroom banter and two of the runways are inspired by balls, gags and the most iconic bodysuit in Drag Race herstory...

Episode 387: Drag Race S15 Ep 8: LipSync Lalaparuza Smackdown

It was a big week for Bruno! He got to call the balls (silently of course) for this week’s lip sync smackdown AND sit at the judges’ table! But more importantly, we got wall to wall lip syncs for 34 minutes, including some that just tore the roof off the house. Selina transformed Celine, Marcia put on more makeup (and won her lip sync!), Mistress didn't miss a beat, Spice did about as well as you would expect, and we were gifted with Anetra vs Sasha Colby (Sasha Coooooolllby)...

Episode 386: Drag Race S15 Ep 7: The Daytona Wind 2

This week’s acting challenge took a huge swing into absurdist territory and many fans said, “It’s not funny.” We found a lot to love, including the Too Many Queens opening credits, Sasha’s eye acting, that Latrice laugh and the mere idea of a surprise Danny Trejo. Malaysia and Mistress stole the show in both the challenge and the episode, and gave us lots to discuss about evoking the Bully Card and making adult decisions in a playground fight...

Episode 385: Drag Race S15 Ep 6: Old Friends Gold

The Season 15 speed run continues with golden oldie girl groups this week. Metalgate almost turns the workroom into a mosh pit but we also get Mistress’s old school charm and Sasha Justice Corner. We give Robin more airtime than the show did, identify deeply with Malaysia, discuss campy Drag Race narratives, and have an impromptu PSA about a very important topic: stretching. Also: big bingo updates at the end of the show! Season 15 Bingo Board! (https://www.alrightmary...

Episode 384: Drag Race S15 Ep 5: House of Fashion

Home is where the runway is, or something like that, as the queens break into teams for a sort of unconventional materials design challenge inspired by the judges panel's homes! Season 15 Bingo Board! ( even more Alright Mary? Become a Matreon (
