'Drag Race' Girls Star In First Starbucks LGBT Commercial

Well here's one place we certainly didn't think we'd see the "RuPaul's Drag Race Girls" pop up.

Starbucks released what is reportedly its very first lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)-themed commercial this week starring the top two contestants from "Drag Race" season six: Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio. The commercial is cheeky, fun and a little bit silly, but it's nice to see these two gaining some more mainstream traction.

Starbucks has long been an ally to the queer community. Not only did the organization raise a Pride flag over its Seattle headquarters earlier this year, but the company's CEO famously told an anti-gay shareholder that he was free to "sell [his] shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company" if he had a problem with the company's pro-gay values.
