Tyra Banks to host new reality show featuring teen drag artists

Model, actress, and host Tyra Banks has just been announced as the executive producer for a series about teenage drag performers and their families.

The upcoming series titled ‘Generation Drag’ will follow “five teens and their families as they anticipate their biggest drag performance at Dragutante, a drag show designed as a platform for LGBTQ+ teens to express themselves,” reports Deadline.

“I have such admiration and respect for these teens. They are bravely navigating coming into their own in a world that can be very challenging and not always accepting. What is so beautiful is seeing their parents and siblings supporting them,” said Banks in a statement.

 

 

“These teens’ laser-focused tenacity inspires my team and me and we are honored to share their stories. I can’t wait for these popping personalities to show their fierceness to the world.”

Meanwhile, Howard Lee the President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals gave us a preview of all the “popping personalities” set to be featured in the program, including Jameson, Noah, Vinny, Bailey, and Nabela. “[They] may only be in their teens, yet they are well beyond their years in being true to themselves and recognizing the importance of living authentically.” 

‘Generation Drag’ will premiere together on the Discovery+ streaming platform starting on June 1st, which also marks the first day of Pride Month.
