It’s that time of year again!
The Emmys are coming and you know what that means… Shows are launching their For Your Consideration events to catch the eyes, ears and hearts of Emmys votes! Well, RuPaul’s Drag Race is no exception and last night RuPaul hosted a For Your Consideration event at the LASC in West Hollywood.
The event was to officially launch the fabulous fashions of Season 9 which are showcased in the store front windows as a For Your Consideration campaign for RuPaul and Drag Race to be nominated for both ‘Outstanding Reality-Competition Program’ and ‘Outstanding Host For A Reality-Competition’!
We may be biased, but of COURSE RuPaul and RuPaul’s Drag Race should be nominated for those categories… but, you know, whatever, we’ll let the Emmy voters decide that. The installation, which was put together by the amazing Chad Michaels, will run for four weeks, so you’d better hurry and go see the gag-worthy dressed!
Not only was Mama Ru in attendance but various queens from an array of seasons showed up to the event. From season 9 Queens Valentina, Aja, and Eureka O’Hara to season 2 Queens Tyra Sanchez, Morgan McMichaels, and Raven, even season 7’s Jaidynn Diore Fierce and season 3’s Mariah Balenciaga were there to show support for the show AND it’s iconic host!
While opening the event, RuPaul addressed the crowd in a poignant speech talking about Drag Race, the importance of Drag in today’s political climate, and so much more! It was truly a spectacular and incredible night!
Check out the speech and look at more pics from the sickening night below!
