The popular American television program RuPaul's Drag Race will soon have a Dutch version. The program will be called Drag Race Holland and will be broadcast on Videoland, RTL announced on Sunday.
RuPaul announced the news himself in a video. "I am proud to say that my beloved Drag Race is coming to the Netherlands. With a brand new presenter and exclusively available at Videoland. More information will follow soon. So keep an eye on it," he says.
RuPaul's Drag Race has been on television since 2009. After a Thai version, Drag Race Holland becomes the second non-English version.
In 2009, the American singer, writer and drag queen RuPaul started the program. At that time it was not called a Drag Race; the idea was to find 'America's next top drag queen'. The program led to a revival of show cross-dressing. The program has won several Emmy Awards.
It is not yet known when the Dutch version will be released.
