Drag Her!: RuPaul's Drag Race Board of Advisors

Background Guide coming soon.

rupaul@ucbmun.org


With 14 seasons and over 191 of episodes to date, RuPaul's Drag Race has paved a way for Drag Queens to get wider exposure in mainstream society. This show was monumental for LGBTQ+ exposure in media itself. This show not only casts people who are non gender–conforming, but has a cast that is racially and ethnically diverse, allowing this show to claim the tittle of most diverse reality show. And as the most glamorous and flashy reality show, there is also bound to be flashy drama among the Queens. The Board of Advisors of the show are now working together to further the show and further LGBTQ+ representation in mainstream society.




DIVYA VEMULAPALLI

Chair

Hi everyone, I'm Divya Vemulapalli and I can't wait to meet all of you for UCBMUN XXVII. I am a senior majoring in Economics with a minor in Public Policy. My roots are in Atlanta, Georgia and which is a good half of my personality when I am here, just as going to school in California is when I am back home. Last year, I had the pleasure of serving as the Vice Chair for the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Committee, but this year I am moving on to a different kind of royalty – Drag Queens. I am beyond excited to be your chair and to witness all the lively discussions in what will surely be a drama filled weekend (in the best way possible of course). This Model UN team has provided me with real happiness throughout my time at Berkeley and I hope to make this weekend with all of you from across the country just as joyful and fruitful of an experience. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. See you in San Francisco!

Best,
DIVYA VEMULAPALLI

SABINA DHILLON

Crisis Director

Hello Hello! My name is Sabina Dhillon and I am super stoked to be your Crisis Director!! I am a sophomore majoring in both Philosophy and Gender Women's Studies and minoring in Asian American Asian Diaspora Studies!! I am from the Central Valley area here in California (and yes I can do a killer Valley Girl accent).
What I am most excited about this committee are the Drag Queens themselves! I can't wait for you all to bring them to life! I absolutely adore the fashion, makeup, and personalities of all the Queens made popular from this show. And I cannot wait for you all to give me the most fabulous and flashy backroom notes!! Outside of committee you will see me shamelessly ranting about my love for Halsey, singing all of their songs at any given moment, or have my headphones in–– blasting their songs(can you tell I'm obsessed). I love all things art and am a huge enthusiast of makeup and think it's the perfect medium for self expression. I'm so excited to see all of your creativity shine through in this very flashy, very glamorous committee!!

Best,
SABINA DHILLON
