Having drag kings on Drag Race would not only make the show more entertaining. It would also create models for a younger generation. Now more than ever, LGBT youth are tuning in to find inspiration in drag idols. However, half of our LGBT culture may not identify with predominantly gay male contestants they see every week. Little boys now have over 100 contestants to inspire their own gender-bending transformations. But little girls don’t have the equivalent role models. They could definitely use someone inside their TV saying, “Hey! I have a vagina like you, and this is how we can make this kind of art!”
