RuPaul's Drag Race Winner Bob the Drag Queen on Pride, Being Confident and Staying Strong After Orlando

That's the advice from Bob the Drag Queen – the season 8 winner of Logo's popular RuPaul's Drag Race, in the wake of Sunday's Orlando shooting that left 49 dead and injured 53.
"It was horrible and terrifying," Bob tells PEOPLE of the massacre, which occurred at gay nightclub Pulse. "It was a blatant and hateful attack on our community, and I refuse to let terror win."
Still, despite the horrors, the 29-year-old thinks the LGBTQ community can find a way to stay strong after the tragedy. "It's okay to pay reverence to the people who lost their lives and still enjoy yourself," he says. "What were the people doing when they were at this gay bar? They were having fun. They were out living their lives."

Back in 2009, you'd be hard-pressed to find an average American who knew the definition of a death drop or how to read a queen for filth. That all changed with RuPaul's Drag Race, the must-see competition series returning this summer with its second All Stars season on Logo. And it promises to be bitchier and funnier than ever.
"The girls dropped whatever they were doing to do this," RuPaul says. "We've got a hundred girls now, so we could pretty much do All Stars forever."
So who's going to lip-sync for their life this time around?

"The power went out during the shoot," RuPaul says in the current issue of PEOPLE. "Hollywood had a major power outage that blacked out our studio for several hours."
But that setback provided an unexpected bonding opportunity for him and the past eight winners of RuPaul's Drag Race.
"As we were waiting for the power to come back on, the past winners – in full drag and in broad daylight – sat in a circle smoking and swapping war stories," he explains. "It gave us a chance to stop, look each other in the eyes, and take a moment to realize how far our little show has come. How it has changed all of our lives. We couldn't have planned a better reunion."
