AT LAST! #RuPaul wins his 1st #Emmy! [details]

With all of the GROUNDBREAKING accomplishments RuPaul Charles has made in POP CULTURE, I had not idea he never won an Emmy.  Well that VOID has been FILLED!  RuPaul won his 1st Emmy for Outstanding Host of a Variety, Nonfiction Or Reality Program!!!

RuPaul accepted the honor last evening at the Creative Arts Emmy Award ceremonies at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre.

Backstage after the ceremony, a beaming RuPaul fielded questions from reporters and shared that he honestly didn’t expect to win.

“I came here thinking, ’Wow, I got invited to the prom—and I’m gonna dance my ass off,” he said. “But I didn’t think I would have this [award] in my hand when I was dancing.”

When the nominations were announced in July, Ru dedicated his nomination “to outsiders everywhere.”
“Brave souls who, against all odds, stick to their dreams and make the world a more colorful place. On behalf of those people—my tribe—I am so grateful.”

RuPaul beat out some heavy competition Sunday night, including Ryan Seacrest as host of American Idol, Steve Harvey for Little Big Shots, Heidi Klum & Tim Gunn for Project Runway, Tom Begeron for Dancing with the Stars and out actress Jane Lynch as host of Hollywood Game Night.

Charles has been in the GAME for a LONG time and has blazed  many a PATH for the LGBT community and BEYOND.  A true pioneer in television and philanthropic endeavors and more-this Emmy is a LONG TIME coming!  Whether you are straight, gay, bi or OTHERWISE you can not deny the GREATNESS of 'RuPaul's Dragrace' as it is a PLATFORM for the TALENTED entertainers' that may not have such a BROAD audience to reach with their GIFTS!!
