The world’s most famous drag queen RuPaul is featured in a new coffee table book from Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbuto better known as World of Wonder. For over two-decades, Bailey and Barbuto have added a little sparkle to entertainment industry with groundbreaking documentaries, outrageous reality TV programs and fiction films.
Their latest adventure, “The World According to Wonder,” is a pictorial odyssey of their fabulous work from 1991-2012 and features such memorable projects as “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” and Logo’s most popular series “Rupaul’s Drag Race.
“People love to hear our pitches,” Bailey told Indiewire, “but they think it’s just great entertainment in a room, rather than something that will deliver in the real world. People think we’re downtown. People still call us boys, and we’re in our 50’s. We’re younger than Madonna, but…”
World of Wonder’s newest projects include “Life with La Toya” which premiered this weekend on OWN and Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing.” They are currently in production for season six of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

He continually inspires us. “You’re born naked and the rest is drag” Truer words were never spoken. Photo by Mathu Andersen
