Talk about #relationship goals!
At last night’s TIME 100 Gala, RuPaul and husband Georges LeBar stepped out together for the most adorable of date nights. Not only did the pair look fierce as ever, duh, but the Gala carpet marked the first time the dashing dudes posed together as a married couple!
In case you live under a rock and haven’t heard, back in March, Mama Ru announced to the world that the pair had secretly tied the knot after twenty three years together. Cue all the ‘awws!’
The pair attended the event because the iconic trailblazer was named one of the TIME 100 Most Influential People.
When the prestigious title was bestowed upon RuPaul, the incredible Naomi Campbell spoke out about how she got to know Ru.
“I first met RuPaul in the ’90s, when I was doing a shoot on 14th Street in New York City. As soon as I saw him, I wanted to know where he was going, because that was where I wanted to be.
Ru was different. Not just because he had perfect, precise clothes and makeup, or because he was the only man I knew who could look that good in a wig and heels. There were no rough edges to be found. But as I got to know him better, I got to experience firsthand his wit and his intelligence—he’s like an encyclopedia. And his beauty is far beyond skin-deep.
Now, through RuPaul’s Drag Race, which recently premiered on VH1 after eight seasons on Logo, millions more people are getting to know Ru like I do. It’s incredible what he’s done for the drag queens who compete on that show—bringing them out, introducing them to a mainstream audience and letting them be proud of who they are and what they want to be.
I am blessed to know Ru. We all are.”
Biggest of congrats to you, Ru! We’re all lucky to exist in the same world as you. (Photo: MediaPunch)
