RuPaul Reads Anti-Drag Bills to Filth in Inspiring New Video


“Drag queens are the Marines of the queer movement,” the Drag Race host declared.

Mother has spoken.

On Wednesday, March 8, RuPaul shared a new video through the official RuPaul’s Drag Race social media accounts declaring his direct opposition to all of the new anti-drag bills being introduced all over the country by conservative politicians. He said in the new video:

“Hey, look over there! A classic distraction technique, distracting us away from the real issues that they were voted into office to focus on: jobs, healthcare, keeping our children safe from harm at their own school. But we know that bullies are incompetent at solving real issues. They look for easy targets so they can give the impression of being effective. They think our love, our light, our laughter and our joy are signs of weakness. But they’re wrong, because that is our strength.”

The Drag Race host went on, “Drag queens are the Marines of the queer movement. Don’t get it twisted and don’t be distracted: register to vote so we can get these stunt queens out of office and put some smart people with real solutions into government. And by the way, a social media post has never been as powerful as a registered vote.”

MTV and World of Wonder also issued a statement on social media that read:

“Drag performers and the LGBTQ+ community are facing threats across the country. That’s why RuPaul’s Drag Race, MTV, and World of Wonder are proud to donate to ‘The Drag Defense Fund.’ Join us in supporting the ACLU’s work for LGBTQ+ rights.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has set up a dedicated page for people to support and donate to its newly-introduced “Drag Defense Fund.” With states like Tennessee passing bills that significantly restrict drag performances in the state, now is the right time to fight back against this kind of bigotry.

RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 airs Fridays on MTV.
