Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey are superheroes of reality TV. This dynamic duo, along with their award-winning team, have not only made RuPaul’s Drag Race a mainstream success but have been designated by Variety for having the biggest impact in reality TV. The team celebrates 30-plus years since they founded the multi-media empire that is World of Wonder, responsible for some of our community’s most trailblazing queer content, giving voice to underrepresented artists, icons, and activists. What started out as a dream with barely any money to buy a fax machine has turned into a global conglomerate with award-winning TV shows, web series, live events, podcasts, films, and documentaries that have bridged the gap between LGBTQ+ and mainstream programming.
On this episode, we chat with Randy and Fenton about the early days of World of Wonder, the evolution of drag, the reality of reality TV, the power of social media, breaking into Hollywood, their special relationship with RuPaul, DragCon, and their message to their fans for Pride…with host Alexander Rodriguez.
