If you haven’t heard of AJ & The Queen yet, you probably will soon. In the new Netflix series, which officially launched on the streaming platform on Friday, January 10, 2020, RuPaul stars as Ruby Red, a bigger than life but down on her luck drag queen who travels across America from club to club in a rundown 1990’s van, in order to recoup the savings recently stolen from her. She’s paired up with AJ, a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 10-year-old white girl stowaway.

As these two misfits—one tall, one small—travel from city to city, Ruby’s message of love and acceptance winds up touching people and changes their lives a little for the better. This fun, outrageous series explores ideas of family, friendship, love, and loss. Together they help each other navigate the heartbreaking past, the challenging present and a hopeful future as Ruby and AJ travel the USA searching for a little happiness and the very best breakfast waffle.

AJ & The Queen is part Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, part Touched by an Angel. And RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.
