Courtney Act Sends Her Message 'To Russia With Love': VIDEO


Those of you who have been reading Towleroad since 2003 (yes, there are a few of you) may remember a drag queen  we wrote about named Courtney Act who was selected to compete in Australian Idol.

You're going to be seeing a lot more of her this year as she's a contestant in Season 6 of RuPaul's Drag Race, and this week she laid the groundwork for that in the form of a high-energy single and music video encouraging LGBT Russians and their allies to fight for love.

She also does double duty in the clip, playing two roles.

  3. Disgusting. He's making money and getting publicity off of a humanitarian tragedy. What a parasite. Russian gay people don't need music videos, tweets, FB profile pic changes, or photo shoots. They need money, asylum, and an effort to defeat the gay propaganda law by flooding Russia with accurate information about gay people.

  4. Courtney's had quite the career here in Oz since Idol in many areas of the media. While the song does nothing for me,the sentiment is there & that's what matters. It opens a few eyes & ears etc... Looking forward to Drag Race even more now. Good for you CA.

  6. Oh Tommy, don't get your panties in a bunch. Russian gay people need it all. It's not an either/or.
