RuPaul is an icon. The man who coined the phrase "You better work!" has turned drag culture into an empire. From launching the careers of over 100 drag queens on RuPaul's Drag Race to his activism work, Ru puts the D in diva and drag!
Ru's influence on drag culture was showcased this weekend for the first DragCon in New York City. The enormous drag event showcased celebrity drag queens from all over the world, especially the ones who graced Drag Race. Most importantly, DragCon was a space where everyone, regarldess of their race, gender, sexuality, age, or any other background, could walk in DragCon at the Jacob Javitz Center and feel loved. There were even 8-year-old drag queens working the runway!
There was some serious talent in the building. Take a look at our exclusive photos below of the best Black and Latin drag queens at DragCon!
Ruby and Misty were stopping the crowd with their stunning looks.
Who knew a pumpkin could be so chic!
Yes, we all love a Black princess!
Merrie didn't come to play any games!
We aren't sure if she is Black or Latin, but Kyne needs to be on an X-Men movie set!
Her tribal look is every-thang!
BET.com's very own, Shangela!
She is on fire!
This queen was slaying, sickeningly representing for the full-figured queens!
We didn't catch her name but this look is very CGI! Someone call Steven Spielberg!
Just a casual but equally fabulous space suit look!
Check out the video above of Shangela celebrating LGBT pride.
