NEW YORK, NYDecember 9, 2013 – RuPaul is back to transform “herstory” with the highly anticipated sixth season of the ground-breaking series, “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”  This February, Logo TV introduces 14 of the nation’s fiercest drag queens who will compete for the crown and determine who will walk away with a $100,000 cash prize and the coveted title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”

“Our sixth season is rated ‘BBB.’  ‘Bitches Better Beware!’” said Executive Producer, RuPaul.  “It’s our most outrageous and sickening cast to date. And quite frankly, I’m scared of these queens.”

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” will again bring together some of the most talented ladies of drag and fans will be gagging to see who makes the ultimate transformation when the gloves (and wigs and stilettos) come off.  The 14 queens who will “werk it” for the title include:
