12 Days of Pride: Bow Down To The Legendary RuPaul

Shangela, one of Ru's children, honors the icon.

The 12 Days of Pride would not be complete without honoring the legend, the icon, the grand diva of them all – RuPaul! Ru is one of the baddest of all time. He managed to claw his way in the world of drag and became a household name.

In 1993, Ru hit it big with "Supermodel (You Better Work)" and from there he would host his own talk show, appear in countless movies and then he started RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2009, which launched the career of hundreds of drag queens.
The show managed to reshape the drag industry and create a platform for hundereds of up and coming queens. He now has a star on the Hollywood walk of fame and he is a two-time Emmy winner.
There is no one better to pay tribue to Ru then Drag Race alum Shangela. See the video above.
