RuPaul just made herstory.
During the 2020 Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, Sept. 18, the RuPaul’s Drag Race star won the award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program for the fifth year in a row.
Along with the major accomplishment, the legendary drag queen actually broke the record for the most wins in the category’s 13-year history.
“Welcome to the main stage of RuPaul’s Drag Race,” the 59-year-old star began, “On behalf of VH1, World of Wonder and our incredible cast and crew, I want to thank the Academy for this great honor.”
“I’ve always said, ‘Every time I bat my false eyelashes, I’m making a political statement,'” RuPaul continued. “Well, tonight, the only political statement I want to make is this: Love. Love for our LGBT brothers and sisters, love for Black queens and brown queens and love for the United States of America, where a little gay boy with nothing more than a p—ycat wig and a dream can build an international platform that celebrates sweet, sensitive souls everywhere.”
