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

Originally posted 06/17/2016 04:15PM

"It's okay to say you're doing well in the time of tragedy."

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."

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?
