FELICIA HEALS: May enter UK version of Drag Race
Drag Race’s “first cis-gender” considered contestant has said that she would consider auditioning for the UK version of the show.
Speaking with THEGAYUK Felicia Heals said “who knows where life will take me” when we asked her whether she’d consider enterting the greatly anticipated UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race, which is due to air in the UK on BBC 3 in 2019.
Felicia made headlines around the world, when Drag Race Thailand showed a segement where she auditioned to be part of the show. However, unfortunately she didn’t make the top 14, but has vowed to try out again for season three as long as the process remained “open to other genders“.
The bio-queen also paid tribute to UK drag telling THEGAYUK that she was a fan of British drag, “you guys have some amazing queens” but said that the flight to the UK from Thailand might be a little too far for her to join the show.
Championing non-traditional drag, which usually sees men dressed as heightened versions of women, Russian-born Heals said that she hoped the UK would be as open as the Thailand version, saying “I do hope the UK version will be open to all genders like drag race thailand is”.
Casting is currently open for the UK version with queens urged to fill out an application at the Talent Talks website.
