Hark! the drag queens sing – glory to the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race. Season 14 of the much-loved drag competition series kicks off this Friday, Jan. 7, at 7pm on VH1. Fourth Street's Oilcan's hosts a live-watch party Friday, plus season 14 star Jorgeous stops by Sunday, Jan. 9, for not one but two performances; more deets on both happenings below. Remember: If you make the choice to partake in in-person folly this weekend, local health experts are strongly urging everyone – regardless of your vax status – to mask up indoors and outdoors, so plan accordingly.
