'AJ and the Queen' Cast: All of the 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Cameos in the New Netflix Show

Where are you going to see over 20 RuPaul's Drag Race queens in one place this weekend, including Ru herself? No, DragCon is not back. Instead, AJ and the Queen has a cast full of former contestants of the VH1 show, joining RuPaul and the rest of the cast of the Netflix series. Previous winners like Bianca Del Rio, Jinkx Monsoon and Chad Michaels can be seen alongside some fan favorites and some more obscure drag queens: Plus, there's an appearance from a Drag Race contestant that even the makers of the show might not realize is there.
