What’s RuPaul’s The B-tch Who Stole Christmas movie about?

It’s that age old Christmas story; drag queens attempting to beat other drag queens in a drag queen beauty contest to keep their drag queen bar open.

Set in RuPaul's favourite town of Tuckahoe, the gals favourite Inn is about to be bulldozed and winning the competition is the only way to save it and Mama Ru as the b-tch herself who steals Christmas... We're just not quite sure how, yet.

Expect tongue pops, double entendres and lots and lots of costume changes.
