Drag shows have become increasingly popular over the last decade with many citing RuPaul's Drag Race as a driving force behind the popularity. MasterClass.com notes:
Drag is especially popular because of the reality competition TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race. On the show, contestants lip-synch, walk runways, do celebrity impersonations, design and create custom outfits, and more—all to compete to be crowned as the best drag show performer. The show also serves as a platform to highlight issues in the drag community; for instance, in Drag Race season one, a contestant discussed their HIV-positive diagnosis.
Iconic drag divas from the show include Sasha Velour, Shangela, Alyssa Edwards, Katya, Bianca Del Rio, Trixie Mattel, Courtney Act, and Alaska. Other popular drag queen shows and events include DragCon, RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, Wigstock, Drag Queen Story Hour, and drag brunch events.
