RuPaul - Legendary Tastemakers Closer Look

Brian Ness

Now this one gets personal.

I love RuPaul.

Not only is she fun, silly, irreverent and sassy, she is wickedly smart and incredibly compassionate. RuPaul has received a lot of heat over the past year for criticism of her show's depiction of the transgender community. I hear that criticism, but I also hear RuPaul's response - her ability to focus on love, on laughing through life, because if not for laughter, what do we have?

RuPaul started out as a club kid and performer, and ended up a mainstream success, with her own talk show, music career, and now the 7th season of her competition show (which I have watched, religiously, since episode 1 first aired!)

RuPaul not only changed the art of drag, she worked her way into the mainstream to question all of our understanding of gender. And she is wickedly, wickedly funny.

I love you, mama Ru!
