Pride Profile: RuPaul Charles, Performer/Recording Artist/TV Host

b. 1960

“You better work!” was the fierce proclamation of the 1993 dance floor anthem “Supermodel” catapulting drag recording artist, RuPaul to international fame and  inspired millions to be strong and proud of who and what they were.

 In a case of life imitating art, a seven year contract as “the First Face of M.A.C. Cosmetics” turned RuPaul into a bona fide supermodel.  Along the way, this gender bending icon has also appeared in more than 50 films and TV sit-coms, hosted a talk show, and the long running “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

To date as a singer/songwriter RuPaul has eleven solo albums including this year’s “Realness;” and two books, an autobiography entitled, Lettin’ It All Hang Out, and Workin’ It! RuPaul’s Guide to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Style.

To the “Stonewall Girls” who formed a drag kick line taunting police, and all the men and women 48 years ago who had had enough, and pushed back against brutality igniting a rebellion, “I have one thing to say…” we are in your debt and forever grateful.
