RuPaul built a drag empire -- now it’s time to pay attention
-- we’re talking about a little show called “RuPaul’s Drag Race” that first aired in 2009, back when then-President Obama was in his first term and Instagram wasn’t even an app yet. Since then, more than 100 drag queens have sashyed into the Werk Room to launch their careers, and the show has gone on to win 13 Emmy Awards, including two for Outstanding Competition Show. AdRuPaul became the most recognizable drag queen in America, but it wouldn’t be until the premiere of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” that Ru and his empire were taken to the global level. It’s hard to imagine an out and proud drag queen becoming such a success, let alone a drag queen of color to become the face and name of the art of drag. It’s like what RuPaul says at the end of every episode of “Drag Race:” If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell can you love somebody else?
