Calling all drag fans! You may have noticed in the last couple of years that more and more Rupaul’s Drag Race alumni have been coming to SA so that local fans can bask in their glory for a few hours. And you have DragCon South Africa to thank for that. While they are responsible for  famous queens such as Detox, Brooke Lynn Hytes and  Dusty Ray Bottoms visiting our shores. But when news broke of who was coming next, fans (and us) were ~shook~ in the best possible way. Get ready, because all the way from Planet Glamtron… Alaska 5000 is coming to Mzansi!


Alaska 5000 Summer Tour

Anyone fan of Rupaul’s Drag Race knows the drag queen Alaska 5000. She made her debut on season five where she placed in the top three. But the world hadn’t had enough of her just yet so Rupaul – obviously realising his mistake – invited her back to participate in season two of All Stars, where she snatched the crown and became one of the most popular contestants to ever appear on this binge-worthy show.

Now the South African fanbase gets to ‘kiki’ with her in the flesh because she is going to be visiting Joburg and Cape Town this December for the final leg of her Summer Tour. Can I get an amen???

Want to get up close and personal with Alaska? COSMO and DragCon are giving away 10 tickets to the event in both Johannesburg and Cape Town, and one meet-and-greet ticket to a lucky winner in each city. Stay tuned to our social media platforms on 2 December to find out how you can win.

See you there! (We’ll be the ones fangirling at the front, come and say hieeeeeeee!).
