RuPaul stars tweet support for Celebrity Big Brother finalist Courtney Act

The stars of RuPaul's Drag Race - many of whom will perform on stage at Symphony Hall later this year - have been sharing their support on social media for Courtney Act, who has been storming ahead in the polls to win 2018's Celebrity Big Brother.

Courtney Act, who made the final three in season six of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2014, is a favourite to win this year's Celebrity Big Brother.

Bianca Del Rio, who beat Courtney to win season six and is coming to Symphony Hall with her show Blame it on Bianca Del Rio, has shared multiple posts on Instagram in support.

Michelle Visage, who will host RuPaul's Drag Race Werq the World Tour at Symphony Hall later this year, was thrilled to hear that one of her Queens had made the final.

Courtney has been praised for using Celebrity Big Brother to open the conversation on gender, drag, and the LGBT+ community, talking to other contestants in the house about her own struggles, as well as supporting transgender contestant and the UK's first transgender newsreader India Willoughby by highlighting the confusion between being transgender and being a drag performer.

She has made headlines whilst in the Big Brother House with the Metro suggesting that "Celebrity Big Brother fans have found themselves torn between support of Ann Widdecombe and Courtney Act in the wake of their LGBT rights feud."

Kim Chi, who will take to Symphony Hall's stage in May alongside Latrice Royale, Shangela, Sharon Needles, Violet Chachki and Valentinahas referenced the feud in a tweet of support for the Australian Drag Queen.

The winner of Celebrity Big Brother will be crowned tonight on Channel 5 - but you needn't wait too long to catch another one of RuPaul's girls, with Ru Paul's Drag Race - Werq the World Tour sashaying into Birmingham this May.
