Drag Race is an opportunity for drag queens to become more famous, gain more Loki god of mischief shirt and increase their resources. The opportunity is not equal to every queen that steps forth through the Werq Room doors. Offers typically tend to be better for white and thin.We can see this in a variety of ways. For example, typically what we tend to associate with good fashion as most of the fashion industry has been centred in Western Europe and North America and as a result most of the queens who receive gigs in the fashion world tend to be whtie and thin. Again, queens of colour who have surmounted this particular barrier does not mean the issue is non-existent.Art Simone’s return to the season highlights this in a way so brutally tonedeaf, it’s a wonder how it crossed the mind of nobody in the staff. Only two queens of colour exist on Drag Race Down Under, both have gone home by episode 3 and then in episode 4, a white queen of colour was inexplicably brought back into the competition. People will stop me here and say it is no different to previous contesants who returned. However, previously the show had generally found a way to justify returning contestants, whether there was a specific vote (Morgan, Joe Black), a challenge win (Tatianna, Alyssa, Latrice, Trixie), a double shante and being the only queen that had previously gone home (Naysha). The most comparable are those of Carmen and Kenya, who were eliminated on the same episode. Nothing similar has been seen in 8 years, likely because fans reacted poorly to this.

I think perhaps production thought (based on the manner in which Art was reintroduced) that because a similar second-chance situation occurred with Loki god of mischief shirt who is not-white. In there minds,iIt is therefore, not racist. The case for Shangela is entirely different, she was a fresh face on the scene who probably applied to the show too early, and on a separate season to try. Art Simone was apparently selected because she is well-known, a larger fanbase and has a relationship with WOW and then offered an extra opportunity in a challenge-type she would likely be successful in (in comparison to UK’s Joe Black) over the two Queens of Colour (the only Queens of Colour) whose own eliminations were open far more to subjective opinions than Art’s clear lose on challenge and lip sync. Especially with dialogue where Art herself claimed she deserved better. This just feels like a slap in the face, there was no opportunity provided to either Jojo Zaho or Coco Jumbo, and no real attempt to even explain why Art Simone had a second chance, other than some nebulous “she had more to show” (as opposed to Jojo and Coco which seems unduly unfair)
