Digital Technology is truly taking over the industry as Print Magazines are becoming handheld off our smart phones.
Case in point, Paper Magazine takes its first stab with a the Digital Magazine Edition and RuPaul is at front and center on the digital cover.
In the subsequent interview with Paper, RuPaul lets us know that he is: “the motherfucking drag queen.”
His statement on society’s progression with the LGBTQ community is deafening.
“RuPaul still believes that society will always be taking steps backwards. “People are more comfortable with fear than they are with love and openness, so you get this ebb and flow tide,” he explained. “It’s this pendulum swinging back and forth because that’s who we are.” He compared it to past cultural shifts. “The openness we witnessed during the disco era, where men were flaunting their bodies in ways that had, in recent history, never happened? Well, we thought that was going to last forever, but no bueno. That was shut down so fast.”
