RuPAUL JUST MADE HISTORY WITH HIS FIRST EMMY WIN


Watch out Hollywood ― RuPaul just permanently cemented his legacy with a groundbreaking Emmy win for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program.

The win is historic for a number of reasons ― the least of which being that “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is a reality competition for drag queens. “Drag Race” airs on Logo TV ― an LGBT television network not included in the traditional cable package ― and to have a queer television show and network take home an Emmy win like this is a major victory for queer visibility on a mainstream level. 

“I think about all the kids who watch this show all over the world who finally have an emotional navigation system,” RuPauls told Entertainment Tonight in the above clip. “This show and the 100s of girls who have come through our show have told their stories so graciously and have really helped young people around the world navigate their lives.”

We’re so proud of you, RuPaul ― and we can’t wait to see what else your magic brings to Hollywood!
