The classic Rusical challenge came at a crucial time in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality.

Now that's fighting for gay rights.

During the last season of RuPaul's Drag Race, mother Ru tasked the top six queens to perform in Wigloose: The Rusical.

Even though it was filmed in 2022, the episode ended up airing at a crucial time as anti-LGBTQ+ legislation started to sweep the nation, with many bills targeting transgender people and drag queens.

Loosey LaDuca played one of the lead characters in the musical and she still feels so grateful to be part of the Rusical's legacy.

"I feel incredibly proud to have been a part of the Rusical that we were able to do. We were really progressing forward and now it feels like we're regressing back," LaDuca tells PRIDE.

With an election year around the corner, messages such as these on major platforms like Drag Race are crucial for visibility and awareness to fight for LGBTQ+ equality.

"We have to continue this fight that we thought was over, that we hoped was over, but it's going to happen a lot longer. That's okay, because we're never going to go away."

Beyond the inspiring message, the episode also delivered some gagworthy drama when RuPaul asked the queens who should go home that night, which resulted in some shade thrown on the mainstage.

If that wasn't enough, some hot tea was being spilled backstage as well. You'll have to watch Loosey LaDuca's full interview below to get the sickening story.
